Updated: Feb 2

Kick Ass Drummer.......!! "Wow" Yes he is... This Guy can Rock..!!

Classically trained on Piano & Violin (winning a music scholarship to Bryanston School at twelve years of age). Marc has since been a self-taught freelance drummer and has worked in many music genres including Rock, Funk, Latin, Pop and Jazz.

Marc has worked with Girls Aloud, Pet Shop Boys and Gabriella Cilmi (on her hit single 'Sweet About Me' and other tracks on her album 'Lessons To Be Learned'), Beverley Craven's album 'Change Of Heart), George Benson with Rod Temperton - plus many more.

He's worked with (Live & Recording) Joan Armatrading, Francis Dunnery, Jethro Tull, King Kurt and The Blockheads. Has recorded drums for rock man Stevie Zee's latest album. Jazz names include Annie Ross, Robert Farnon (recording), The Ted Heath Big Band (reunion), Theo Travis (live and recorded drums on several of his solo albums), and Mark Murphy. He also played live and recorded drums on three albums for Basia (her latest 'Butterflies' reached no 1 on the USA Billboard contemporary jazz chart in 2018).

Marc Says - I played a drum kit (solo) made of car parts for the original presenters (Clarkeson, Hammond & May) of 'Top Gear Live' around the world. That was a laugh" "I have released (and produced) my own album named 'Typical' which is a personal expression of original material (of mine and other band members) through the genre of modern jazz.

I also composed music for film - one piece being featured on a movie called 'The Honey Killer'.

I have played (live) with smooth jazz artists, including Dave Koz, Peter White, Rick Braun, Patrice Rushen and many more.

Thats it really.... Blah blah blah
