2013 Marc has released his 4th album entitled “Reaching for Orion” which is quickly gaining momentum across the world. Some of the cuts on the album sound like lost 70’s super-group vinyl. Billy Cox simply wrote Marc in an email “Bad To The Bone!!” after hearing it.
Although Blues based, Marc refuses to get stuck in the “Blues Guitarist” box or “Shredder” box. His playing and his voice are soulful and magic… you can feel it. He is a master songwriter, and that’s yet another thing that set’s him apart from a lot of the other modern day guitar heros.
