About the debut album 'My #9':
The title track was chosen as BBC ATL's Track for the Day.
'Beginning softly with a Coldplay Parachutes era riff, and blossoming into a big melanchloic track'.
'If the words folk or singer songwriter mean something to you, it would be worth checking ‘Never Ending Loop’ out...' (Chordblossom.com)
"Acoustic singer-songwriter Kris D Marsden's latest release see's a snapshot into the mind of a man in some degree of emotional turmoil. Rich in the sort of soft, Donovan inspired production that would make it onto any indie-romance film's soundtrack... the subtle integration of piano lies delicately amongst the anguish laden vocal, though it's difficult to concentrate on much beyond the sentiments of a song so deeply rooted in it's authors conscious."
