Marshall Jefferson is one of the founding fathers of house music as it is known today. Born in Chicago in 1959. Marshall was a central figure in the development of the Chicago house scene and produced seminal house anthems including `Move Your Body`, `7 ways To Jack`, and `Open Our Eyes`. He has worked with the best in the business, from fellow founding father Frankie Knuckles to Roy Davis Jr, Steve `Silk` Hurley, Felix Da Housecat and Lil Louis.

Forever in search of fresh inspiratation Marshall switched his focus in the late 1980`s from acid house to the then relatively new sub-genre of deep house. `Open Yous Eyes`, released on Big Beat in 1988, was a huge success; nowhere before had a producer been able to make such an emotional connection with the listener, at the same time maintaining the physical connection necessary for it to succeed on the dance floor. Though his work with vocalist like Kim Mazelle, Ce Ce Rogers and Curtis McClaine, Marshall produced hits on labels including Republic UK, Trax Records, Atlantic and Syncopate.

Juggling production and remix duties with a hectic touring schedule, Marshall was the headline act in the first House Music Tours of Europe in 1987 and enjoyed regular gigs in clubs around the US, most notably in Chicago.

He is currently touring extensively, counting to spread his love of music around the world.
