I've toured for years and sharpened my teeth. This one man band style cannot be beat. I sit on a throne like seat. Play the drums with both feet, strum my guitar while I sing. Some people dance and some people shout, I enjoy the whole thing. Born of desire and of necessity. Touring endlessly and independently. Can entertain a crowd of 2 to 20000. A must see act. A must hear act. Years of touring, learning, watching, practicing and listening have toughened my skin, strengthened my guitar playing and solidified my place in Canadian music. You may not yet know me, but you will.

Main influences are mostly dead but not forgotten. Inspired by people who choose to live there dream and take a chance. I am original in my sound, delivery and style. I'll play it and you tell me what it is. Kinda bouncy/rootsy/folky/reggae rock n' roll. Kinda.

Started playing guitar at 13, drums at 7, singing at 15. The one man band idea was born in 1999 and has since been my main pursuit. I've honed my chops and tightened my technique with over 1000 gigs and over 10 000 hours of practice. Give me a chance, that is all I am asking.

Marc has toured with/opened for:

Xavier Rudd, Cuff the Duke, Sunparlour Players, Meligrove band, Wax Mannequin, Grand Theft Bus, Jimmy Swift Band, Rantmusic, Macgnarleys Rant, Geoff Berner, Pilate , The Stills and many many others.
