“East Of Eden”
Well, most great stories start in the East and end up in the west and the story of Marvin Etizoni does exactly that. The Brooklyn born musician and his family moved to L.A. in the ’70s and it didn’t take long for Etzioni to fit right in. His first band Model played with everyone from the Plimsolls to the Motels, and his next band Lone Justice signed to Geffen and opened for U2. Not too shabby. Etzioni left Lone Justice after their first record and from there he got really busy. So busy in fact, it would take a full podcast to cover everything so bear with this partial list. Etzioni put out a series of awesome solo albums, produced artists like Peter Case, Toad The Wet Sprocket and Counting Crows, wrote songs for Jimmy Barnes, Victoria Williams, Voice of the Beehive, the Williams Brothers and Judy Collins, appeared on records by Dogs Eye View, the Dixie Chicks and Lily Haydn and he has a band called Thee Holy Brothers with Willie Aron of the Balancing Act. If you want to get an idea as to how respected Etzioni is in the music industry, consider this: one of his solo albums called Marvin Country, features duets with Richard Thompson, John Doe, Steve Earle and Lucinda Williams. And this probably won’t surprise you, but Etzioni is really busy. The President of Regional Records, he’s in the studio working on Lone Justice tracks and finishing up the new Thee Holy Brothers record; additionally, he’s prepping the release of the first new Williams Brothers album in almost 30 years, and Lone Justice are going to be included in an upcoming Country Music Hall of Fame exhibit alongside the Byrds, the Eagles and more. The mandolin-playing Etzioni has had quite a career, and this is quite a conversation.
