NEWS   The Wine Tasting Song has been cellared for just over 9 years.
It is to be unleashed shortly. Carefully crafted! Designed to help one ponder perhaps the great questions of our age. It will be opened and decanted slowly

"Stained in wisdom and scented with earth
in galleys and casks it sleeps
The sun, the rain in playful mirth
brings viti and culture so divine a birth".

I began 'Newtown Rain' the night of the tragedy.
'Newtown Rain' was written in the spirit of sharing and universal
remembrance. It is my greatest hope that our Mothers & Fathers on the Hill
will do what is right and honor those we've lost..
My work is more like poetry in motion,in the folk tradition and perhaps "Folk Rock" I want to share what I’m doing with those of you who’ve been communicators, sharing thoughts, music & ideas. My site showcases some of my work & will include more as I continue to record. It is my hope that you will stop by and explore my work, register & express your ideas on the “Message Board”.

Please check out my music videos as well...
Why this name?
It's my name.
Do you play live?
I'm more of a songwriter rather than a live performer. Although, I've never said no when asked.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
We, as independent artists, have the opportunity to get our work out to the whole world. We, as listeners can now hear it all.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
Yes,of course. Although, at this stage, I am more interested in others performing my work. A publishing contract is for me.
Band History:
Born in the early 1950's,Plainfield,NJ, I Grew up affected by the music of Hank Williams, Woody Guthrie. In my teens Bob Dylan, John Lennon, Doo Wop, early Rock & Roll. Began writing in earnest at the age of 9. Poetry paints pictures in an impressionistic way that I relate best. I Began teaching myself Guitar in 1970. Wrote my first songs in 1971. I believe them to be important in some way.

Favorite artists are Louis Armstrong, Bessie Smith, Robert Johnson, Hank Williams,Muddy Waters,Sam Cooke, Woody Guthrie,T-Bone Walker, Buddy Holly, Bob Dylan, Ray Charles,John Lennon,Leon Russell, Van Morrison, Neil Young, Bruce Springsteen.

Fell upon 'Dark Lady From Trinidad' while hopping around Soundclick. WOW, loved it! Very rich vocals and the melody and lyrics talk to you. Great track Marc!

Hi Marc.
Long time no hear.
WOW!
I just listened to "Dark Lady from Trinidad". It blew me away!
You have fully evolved. No longer necessarily the songwriter in search of others to play your tunes. You now have a unique pro sound of your own. I'm so glad to hear it. You deserve praise for your efforts.
I haven't recorded since my 'puter puked. I had some of my tunes critiqued. The results were mixed: a limited but faithful market.
My son Timothy and I are working together now. I just posted the first tune we exclusively collaborated on:
"The Evil Eye".
It's just the first cut but it came out very well, not to my full satisfaction but when we rework it it should turn out excellent. The best thing for me is I'm working with my son, soon to be both of my sons. Christopher is interested now.
Stop in sometime.
I'l be going through the rest of your tunes. Can't stop at just one.
Best of...
Fred

Hey Marc,

Enjoyed listening to your great songs on your playlist. "Underneath The Moonglow" is my favorite so far. Very nice guitar, singing, harmonica...it's got it all. I'll listen to some more. Drop by and say hello.

All the best,
Charles
(formally neceygirl) Just a note to let you know that I am still enjoying listening to your music. I like the format you used for "Oh Joboy". It envokes an image that could inspire a black history dance. Thanks
Hi there

The Higher Plane EP has now been completed and the tracks are on my Soundclick page. In addition to Janet and me, the EP features our friend Phil Paterson adding banjo and congas.

Have a listen, and let us have any feedback.
