Biography

Over the past 15 years Marc Eric’s extraordinary talent has put him both on stage and in the studio with some of the world’s most recognizable artists, including Slash, Vivian Campbell, Bruce Kulick, Graham Bonnet, among many others. His unique and innovative guitar style has earned him praise from some of the world’s most legendary musicians, such as Billy Cox (of Jimi Hendrix’s fame) who describes Marc as “one hell of a guitar player”.

In 2005 Marc released, “Gutshot Straight”, a CD which would eventually have 4 of the 12 tracks selected and included in the New Line Cinema feature film, “Highroller”, starring Michael Imperioli. Based on the independent success of “Gutshot Straight”, New Line Cinema elected to include the music video for Marc’s song, “Yesterdays” (featured in its entirety during the film) as a bonus feature on the DVD home video release.

Marc’s latest CD project, Roads Less Traveled, is scheduled for release in the spring of 2011. In support of the album, Marc has been selected as the feature artist for George L Cables, and will appear in numerous guitar magazines worldwide. The ad is slated to run in the 2011 Winter NAMM editions of Music Connection, Guitar Player, Guitar World, Premiere Guitar, in addition to several others, over the first few months of 2011.

Marc continues to play live, either headlining one of Nashville’s many live music venues, or just sitting in as a special guest along-side such notable names as Kenny Olson (Kid Rock) and Peter Keys (Lynyrd Skynyrd). As a singer/songwriter and producer, Marc has more than 100 of his own original songs available for TV and film licensing, while he continues to produce many other well known artist and bands at his studio in Nashville Tenn. Marc recently produced the first of several original country songs, written and performed by television and film actor, Jeremy London (Party of 5 and 7th Heaven), with whom he continues to collaborate.
