Marshall Oakman, a well-established New York-based artist, has created a soundscape rich in genuine alternative rock components, armed with his particular thematic vision and a determination to express himself. In this regard, he once again partnered with Kasim Sultan, Liberty Devitto, and Paul Pesco to present the most compelling number you will ever hear in “She’s No Doll, She’s a Woman.”
His latest single has a catchy beat and hypnotic panning to it, with an addictively eighties-esque bass-line and sultry vocals, and is instantly identifiable for its tone and character. The organic qualities of the guitar and drums are both nostalgic and refreshing. The progressive environment piques listeners’ interest, as the artist meanders with his exceptional vocal abilities.
She’s No Doll, She’s a Woman is about recognizing, with appreciation, the indispensable significance and depth women have in our lives. This is underscored by stating they are not dolls, things or property.
“She’s No Doll, She’s a Woman” is the second track off his upcoming EP. The passion of yesteryear is present, but the composition and delivery have a sense of freshness. In any case, this appears to be an anthem, standing strong on the strength of its arrangement and set-up — the weight and richness of these innovative musical layers — all blended with that Josh Christina-style bravado that demands you sway.
A delight to lose myself in for a while — I look forward to hearing the rest of the EP
