Marc Von Em is a one man band of sorts, able to create amazing amounts of sound and diversity through his voice and one faithful guitar. His chops are wide-ranging, from delicate finger picking to rambunctious Pete Townsend type strumming. Marc’s guitar serves as more than one instrument as he uses it to create percussive beats and, like Willie Nelson’s and Tom Emmanuel’s, it wears the scars of his passion for playing. Marc is able to seamlessly switch his vibe, his dynamic voice can go from smooth & soaring to smoky scatting. His harmonica playing is equally impressive and he sometimes uses it to accompany Muddy Waters style blues on guitar. His live shows showcase his original music, influenced by folk, funk and blues, with a few choice cover songs woven in. As one reviewer wrote: “If you haven’t seen Marc Von Em perform live, you’re only cheating yourself.”
