Rhys Marsh

Rhys Marsh, based in Trondheim, Norway, is a singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist & producer. He’s a solo artist, leader of The Autumn Ghost, as well as a part of Kaukasus & Mandala.

— Solo — In the autumn of 2013, Marsh put out his first solo release — a five-song collection of covers, called ‘Suspended In A Weightless Wind’. Songs covered included Nick Drake’s ‘Things Behind The Sun’ & King Crimson’s ‘Moonchild’.

Marsh’s debut solo album, ‘Sentiment’, was released in November, 2014. It was written & recorded over a two-year period in Marsh’s own Autumnsongs Recording Studio. On the 1st of December, 2015, Marsh released his second solo album, ‘The Black Sun Shining’ — an album written & recorded in only seven days.

In early 2019, Marsh released the long-awaited follow-up album, ‘October After All’, on Karisma Records.


— Kaukasus — The spring of 2014 saw the release of the debut Kaukasus album, ‘I’. Kaukasus is a collaboration between Ketil Vestrum Einarsen, Rhys Marsh & Mattias Olsson. Written & recorded in two weeks, the album is an instinctive sum of its parts.


— Mandala — Marsh’s first band, formed in 1997. In 2014, after a seven-year break, Mandala got back together to record their debut album, ‘Midnight Twilight’.

The follow-up album, 'The Echoes Of Your Mind', will be released in November, 2020.
