With songs such as Fell In Mud, Let My Blues Take Your Blues Away and Going To Muscle Shoals, it comes as no surprise that Marcus Starr is emerging as a compelling and rousing guitarist-songwriter who is finding his place amongst the great roots musicians, past and present.
Marcus has been an avid player on Southern Ontario's music scene having played lead guitar with Radio Free Universe for six years (2010-2016) and has earned a reputation as being an exciting and dynamic performer and guitarist. During this time, however, Marcus had always made clear his love for roots, blues and funk/jam music with the various side projects he performed with.
Currently, Marcus Starr has been performing solo acoustic shows and with The Marcus Starr Band where his passion and knowledge of roots and Americana music are joyfully displayed to eager audiences. Diving deep into roots, blues, groove and alt-country-with a side of pure unadulterated rock n roll, Marcus Starr's music offers something uniquely special and will leave his audience hungry for more.
There is a place where all the elements of roots music can meet and flourish and it is a powerful and compelling place to be. This is a place Marcus Starr's music will take its listeners to.
