"[Ride] is the breathtaking grandeur of the high desert and plateaus suspended between the pioneer days and ten minutes ago...this is country folk music wrought by a working philosopher who's missed nothing, kept a lot inside for a time, and captured the land." -FAME (Folk & Acoustic Music Exchange)

Marc has performed at Austin's SXSW Music Festival and The Kerrville Folk Festival, and has been selected for the 2016 Falcon Ridge Festival Grassy Hill Emerging Artist Showcase. He has opened shows for Bob Dylan and other national acts. His song, "The Last One," was a staple of Richie Havens' concerts for years. His current release, RIDE, presents ten cinematic recordings capturing the vastness and romance of the American West.

Marc has toured nationally and performed with his band throughout the Northeast. He has also explored the American West, venturing into remote regions of its deserts and mountains. On one such excursion, he discovered "The Big It,", by A.B. Guthrie, on a revolving bookrack in a Navajo reservation trading post. This impressive collection of Western short stories ignited the idea of using his travels to create a set of songs in the cultural tradition of like- minded American artists like John Ford, Guthrie, and Frederick Remington, celebrating the West's exotic landscape and timeless appeal.

RIDE is Album of the Year - "Without a doubt, the greatest discovery for us this year; if not one of the best in our entire existence...makes the writers want to write and singers sing...close your eyes and be transported to the colors of the desert, see the lonesome railroad or smell the fresh air of what is the greatest part of America...an instant American Classic." -Nanobotrock.com
