Hank Marvin Net Worth 2020: He has an estimated net worth of $8 million. Hank Marvin is an English musician, singer, and songwriter who has an estimated net worth of $8 million. Hank Marvin was born on October 1, 1941, in Newcastle upon Tyne, Northumberland, England, to parents who were both musicians. He was the lead guitarist for the band Shadows from 1997 to 2001. It was the backing band for Cliff Richard as well as Marvin, Welch, and Farrar, among other artists.
The release of his self-titled debut studio album in 1969, which peaked at #14 in the UK, marked his debut as a solo artist. In addition to the albums Hank Marvin Guitar Syndicate in 1977, Words and Music in 1982, All Alone with Friends in 1983, Into the Light in 1992, Heartbeat in 1993, Hank Plays Cliff in 1995, Hank Plays Holly in 1996, Hank Plays Live in 1997, Plays the Music of Andrew Lloyd Webber in 1997, Marvin at the Movies in 2002, and Django’s Castle in 2013, Marvin has also released the singles Hank Plays Cliff and Hank
His albums Guitar Player (released in 2002), Guitar Man (released in 2007), Hank (released in 2014), and Without a Word (released in 2017) all charted in the UK’s Top 10.
His self-titled solo album of instrumentals, which featured guitar set to orchestral backing, was released in 1969, following the first disbanding of the Shadows, which occurred in late 1968. The album received widespread critical acclaim. “Sacha” was the number one single in New South Wales, Australia, after being ‘discovered’ by two radio DJs at 2WG Wagga Wagga. The song went on to become a hit worldwide.
Shadows reunions caused Marvin’s solo career to be put on hold, first for a Far East tour and ‘live’ album in 1969, then for a studio album in 1970 (Shades of Rock), and again in the early 1970s, forcing him to abandon his solo endeavours.
He has experimented with different styles and material, releasing instrumental albums as well as albums with mostly vocals (e.g., Words and Music, All Alone With Friends), an album with only acoustic guitars, and an album with a guitar orchestra, among other things (The Hank Marvin Guitar Syndicate).
Over the course of two decades, he collaborated with Richard on several hit singles, including two by the duo “Cliff and Hank,” his own song “Throw Down a Line” (which was also recorded by Marvin, Welch & Farrar), and a song called “The Joy of Living,” while Richard was also successful with his environmental song, “Silvery Rain.”
A vocal-harmony trio comprised of Marvin and Welch that failed to capture the attention of either Shadows fans or fans of contemporary music was formed in 1970 by Marvin and Welch. After releasing a vocal album as ‘Marvin & Farrar’ in 1973, they returned to their original identity as the Shadows for the instrumental Rockin’ with Curly Leads album in late 1973. The Shadows finished second in the United Kingdom’s entry for the Eurovision Song Contest in 1975.
Marvin has been a resident of Perth, Western Australia, since 1986. A number of times when musician friends have visited the area, such as in February 2013, when Cliff Richard performed at Sandalford Winery, he has made impromptu appearances on stage. He is a member of the Jehovah’s Witnesses.
Marvin owns and operates Nivram studios, which is a part of the Sh-Boom studios complex in Tiverton Street, Perth, which is owned by Trevor Spencer and Gary Taylor. Additionally, he has developed a strong interest in the music of jazz guitar legend Django Reinhardt, and he performs on a regular basis with his group, “Hank Marvin’s Gypsy Jazz,” which features a mix of originals by Reinhardt as well as new compositions in the gypsy jazz style.
