Marty Walsh


Growing up in Van Nuys, California, Marty Walsh hit his stride in music just as his dad, and brothers did - they were all naturals. With that said, it’s no surprise that Jay Graydon was the bass player in his brother Dan’s band.  As it pans out, Jay soon encouraged Marty to study music in college and he took the advice. This led to a series of events that would have Walsh playing sessions with Graydon, Seals and Crofts and Yvonne Elliman.  In the early ’80s, he found himself on the hits “9 to5” by Dolly Parton, “She Works Hard for the Money” by Donna Summer  and “Heartlight” by Neil Diamond. In ‘85, he played guitar on Supertramps’ “Brother Where You Bound” and then toured with the band until1988, when they released “Free As A Bird.” He’s a veteran musician who still continues to gig and is faculty member at The Berklee College of Music in Boston – an impressive way to give back to new, emerging talent. And he recently released his debut solo CD titled “The Total Plan.”  Inside MusiCast welcomes Marty Walsh.
