“My Storybook” by The Marsh Family is a song of tribute to togetherness, shared memories, and the importance of family. The song cherishes the people they travelled with, reflecting chapters of their lives and showing how gratified they are to the simplest things that kept them grounded
The Marsh Family is a musical family from England. Ben and Danielle Marsh and their children Alfie, Thomas, Ella, and Tess Marsh make up the group. The family resides in Faversham, Kent, in south-east England.
The Marsh Family gained a global following after uploading pandemic parody songs that went viral in 2020, thanks to their unique blend of comedy, heart, and hope. The Kent-based family of six is varied, earthy, and independent, putting their own spin on genres ranging from musicals and folk to Motown and funk. The New York Times dubbed them the “Von Trapped” family, and they lifted millions of people’s moods and smiles throughout lockdown, appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live (2020), the BBC’s Comic Relief (2021), and spearheading a Christmas campaign for Prostate Cancer UK in December 2021. That month, their debut track was played on BBC Radio 2 and other regional stations.
The Marsh Family‘s “My Storybook,” which is released today, February 17th, 2023, is a piece of musical sunshine that honors togetherness, shared memories, and the simple things that keep us all grounded. The Marsh Family’s broad variety of vocals and harmonies are bolstered by summery ukeleles, acoustic guitars, and a toe-tapping chorus in this song written to commemorate their grandparents’ golden wedding anniversary. The song encourages listeners to cherish those they’ve traveled with, to reflect on the chapters of our lives, and to smile and be thankful.
“My Storybook” honors those who have stood by your side through thick and thin; the song shines with its bright and summery mood as a dedication to togetherness and all the shared memories. This is exacerbated by the fact that everyone in this musical family, including the youngest child with the softest voice, gets a moment to sing. Nobody would feel cold after hearing it, especially given the song’s overall upbeat tone. Even if there have been hard days in the past, the fact that everyone is together is the most important thing. “My Storybook” was inspired by dialogues about growing older, what’s essential in life, and what to look back on for their grandparents’ golden wedding anniversary.
The song is accompanied by a music video. The video clip, shot at Graveney Park, shows the Marsh family standing together at the gate, singing while their best memories are projected onto the gate. There are clips of the kids discovering the piano, holiday photos of the kids touring places, and family members performing instruments for this song. The video honored what family life is all about, and it was held together by endless quantities of love.
“My Storybook” is a soothing combination that wraps around the chorus hook, creating a song that won’t leave my head for a long time. Make sure to give it a listen.
