Marshall Law Band has been the de-facto house band for the ongoing Seattle protests that began following the death of George Floyd. The band is out with a new album, '12th and Pine,' representing their experience at the heart of the protests and the resounding messages they carry.
KEXP’s Larry Mizell Jr. talks with frontman Marshall Hugh about the role of music in protest, the events and activists they highlighted in the new record, and how we all must sustain the movement through dedicated work.
“We really believe that 12th and Pine is something that all sides need to hear, no matter where you sit on this fence,” Hugh says. “It’s really important that you use music for education and understanding other people’s perspectives and we believe that 12th and Pine represents our perspective from a frontlines lens.”
