Marc was born in Ohio’s Amish country, and raised on Bluegrass & Country music. In a house with no television, he figured out in no time how to play a record on the turn table. Marc kept company for hours with the Louvin Brothers, the Everlys, Jim & Jesse, Waylon & Cash…, to name a few. He studied the harmonies, melodies, and lyrics which later took him to Nashville. At the age of twenty, Marc co-wrote “A Woman’s Tears”, which became a Billboard top 40 song on Atlantic recording artist Matt King. Several songs and publishing deals later, and a short siesta, Marc decided to make his own record. His songs, Ideas, and vision eventually evolved into Brother Slade. In his own words, “Brother Slade is a family of friends having fun and making music. I hope that everyone that hears us will feel that they are a part of it, and if you need a place to belong…, we’ll take you”!
What is your part in the band?
Vocals & acoustic guitar, I am also the proud father of Brother Slade…; I’m just not sure who the mother is?
The Buckeye state…, Oh…Oh…Ohio.
In denial, but I live south of Nashville, Tennessee…, & north of everywhere else.
Tom Petty, Neil Young, the Everly Brothers, the Highway Men…, oh, do you know the muffin man?
Horse and buggy chaser…, it’s like storm chasing, just not as dangerous. I also like movies, hiking, baseball, rodeos, and family time.
