‘Marc Reeves has a fantastic voice’ – Independent Music News
22 year old Marc Reeves originally hails from Surrey, UK, but has spent a great deal of his life living in Nottinghamshire. It is here that Marc has become a staple part of the music scene, wearing his heart on his sleeve with his introspective performances in pubs, bars, cafe’s and music venues around the Midlands and beyond. In late December 2010 Marc independently released his debut solo album, ‘Perfectly Fine’, to much critical acclaim, gaining attention from radio stations and journalists nationwide with his unique blend of pop-rock and folk music. 2012 saw Marc releasing his much anticipated follow up, ‘Remember Me’, released February 15th. 2013 shows no sign of things slowing down for Marc as he releases his 3rd album, ‘The Beginning’ – with a 4th arriving later in the year.
Having grown up listening to the likes of The Beatles & Elliott Smith, Marc has a gained a great respect and understanding for Pop music, and combines his love for the genre with his passion for Folk music, drawing inspiration from his seniors – Simon & Garfunkel, Fairport Convention – and contemporaries like Iron & Wine, Laura Marling & Johnny Flynn. Marc has also been perfecting his skills on the guitar for over 10 years: he’s worked as a session guitarist and vocalist for many local artists. He sings like the weight of the world is on his shoulders, but his voice soars effortlessly – which his debut recording is a testament to, being a joyous celebration of playful vocal melodies and harmonies.
Reeves has taken a decidedly intellectual approach to recording: he’s a sound engineer and runs his own online mixing and mastering service, Mix it! Studios.
But Reeves’ music comes from the heart. Combining Pop sensibilities with the story-telling nature of Folk, he shows an unprecedented level of maturity, both in his music and his lyrics.
‘The Beginning’ is available on CD & MP3 via Amazon, iTunes, marcreeves.co.uk and CDbaby from March 25th 2013.
