Marc Black

Marc is a songwriter who deals with social and spiritual challenges...one song at a time. He's one of a very few artists who's music has found a home both folk and pop radio as well as avant guarde shows like Jonn Schaeffer's New Sounds on WNYC. Last month, he won 'Artist of the Year' and 'Song of the Year' honors from ABC's Fame Games program. And his song, 'Ooh I Love My Coffee', has been as high as #3 on their Global Breakout Chart. His recent politically inspired songs include a song and video in support of Barack Obama, 'Step Up America'', and his 'Love Song for Rachel Maddow' which has already been viewed more than 1,600 times on Youtube. Last year, a video of Black performing one of his songs got 35,000 hits on youtube! He also performed this year at the Sundance Film Festival with Donovan, under the auspices of ASCAP. And his song, "Lies in Red, White & Blue" has been as high as #33 on Neil Young's Living with War' site. Marc received the Mobius and the London International Advertising Awards for Best Original Music and has also been noted for songwriting, production and performance by Rolling Stone Magazine, the American Library Association, and Billboard Magazine. Marc has recorded with an array of luminaries including Taj Mahal, Jack DeJonnette, Rick Danko, Peter Schikele (PDQ Bach), and Garth Hudson (keyboardist for the 'Band'). He collaborated with Richie Havens on the title cut of the award-winning, American children CD, and wrote the theme music for the New York Mets from 1987 till 1990. His most recent full CD, Stroke of Genius features a supporting cast that includes Steve Gadd, Art Garfunkel, John Sebastian, and the Dixie Hummingbirds. The lyrics on this new album are based on the inspired poetry of a man who was in a coma for 21 days and miraculously woke up after his doctors had pulled life support. Marc lives north of New York City where he continues recording, scoring films & commercials, and playing live, both solo and with his band. As Paul Winter put it, "His songs are great and his singing is superb." WACBIZ is honored to working with this fine song-smith! Check out No Fracking Way!
