MARVELTY was created by LA-based Minneapolis- bred musician, Todd Beeson. BEESON spent the 90's recording three albums and touring with WOOD before touring as a bassist for Minnesota award- winning songwriters Marlee MacLeod, Dylan Hicks and Matt Wilson. He moved to LA in 1999 and has played bass with Johnne Perez & The Contenders and Rusty Truck (among others) and recorded a couple albums and toured with alt-rock band THE LIFT before releasing an Americana-rock solo project called Spokes in 2010.
WAKE UP came to life after Todd had recorded guitar/bass/keyboards and scratch vocals to drum loops at his home studio. MICHAEL JEROME (Better Than Ezra/Richard Thompson) crushed the drums at STEVIE BLACKE'S studio in January 2016. Later, Stevie (strings for Beck/Weezer/Snoop) played a glockenspiel and BARBARA COHEN (Brother Sun Sister Moon) added her stunning vocals to the mix crafting a large sound...and what you have is a rock anthem envoking arena rock of U2, INXS, The Verve and Simple Minds.
