Hip-hop Artist Marv Ellis

We visit Eugene native Garrick Bushek (aka Marv Ellis) in his home in the woods. “Marv” spins out rhymes as he takes us on a hike, seamlessly merging the urban and rural, sophisticated and home-spun, gritty and green. The story is punctuated with performance footage from a Mississippi Studios show and music videos, featuring instrumentation and a sound that are as eclectic as Marv Ellis himself.
