The solo project of Melbourne-born Marc of a Man, was picked up by internationally renowned Mushroom Music in late 2012. Marc had played guitar religiously from a young age, but his passion for song-writing and composing music came after high school when he became loyal to gigs and music festivals. After years toughing it out performing on local streets and in pubs, Marc is proud to release his debut EP Marc’s ism – a release of the underground Melbourne Indie scene to mainstream listeners.
Marc’s music reflects a hybrid genre; he avoids indie minimalist style by employing a pop aesthetic. He mixes a pop musical approach with a progressive indie method of composition, think P!nk meets Matt Corby. Marc’s songs navigate through relatable life experiences; his lyrics reflect heartache, loneliness and love. Marc’s debut single, Walk Away, is a taste of this – a song about the breakdown of his relationship.
Marc’s stimulating solo project is reflected in his songs, which are an attempt to discover what the mark of a man is. His lyrics pose deep questions: What have we let define us? Can a man ever change his mark? Or will our questions always be answered by the experiences of our past?
Marc’s rare method of composition, his blended genre, his profound lyrics, his persona and his project have proved interesting to listeners of many different musical styles. Thank you for purchasing this album and please enjoy experiencing the mark of this talented, young man.
