Long Island, New York-based singer-songwriter Marshall Oakman unveils the video, “She’s No Doll, She’s A Woman,” a song about the significance of women.
Executive produced by Marshall Oakman, the video was directed by Ethan Felizzari and edited by Rosie Dean, with production assistance by Robert Eberle. Actors include Rosie Dean, Samantha Coughlin, Daria Meyer, Hope Woodason, Janet Russell, Tania Morris, Amber Aras, Alyssa and Lacey Parsons.
Musicians featured on the song are Kasim Sultan (Joan Jett), on bass, Liberty Devitto (Billy Joel), on drums, and Paul Pesco (Madonna), on guitar.
When he was six years old, Marshall first fixed his eyes on a piano. Pressing down on the black and white shapes, he discovered timbre and texture, opening a door into a magical world. Later, he began writing songs. Over the years, Oakman has honed his craft, creating a vast catalog spanning a lifetime.
Marshall’s sound showcases luscious pop-rock textures with harmonies reminiscent of the Beatles, blending timeless themes, thoughtfully embraced, and blended with magnetic melodies.
Marshall has performed at The Cabana in Long Beach, Reel in East Rockaway, Mulcahy’s in Wantagh, Jones Beach Bandshell, Kasey’s Rooftop in Rockville Centre, and Montauk Music Festival, as well as throughout the East Coast, including the New York metropolitan area, upstate New York, New Jersey, Maryland, Virginia, Washington, D.C., and Chicago.
“She No Doll, She’s A Woman” opens on a bright, sparkling piano riding a deliciously buoyant rhythm. Marshall’s evocative tenor imbues the lyrics with flattering tones as he narrates his esteem for women. On the chorus, the tune takes on elevated resonance and glittering colors, while finessed drumming adds zest and oomph to the song’s rhythmic flow.
The video shifts between Marshall and his band performing to a beautiful young woman discovering self-empowerment and freedom.
Brimming with vibrant energy, “She No Doll, She’s A Woman” pushes out scintillating, alluring layers of pop-rock topped by dynamic vocals.
