Marcus Starr’s music goes straight to the heart: you will be drawn into his intricate storytelling and deliberately honest lyrics. Marcus Starr has released his debut album which showcases his deep connection to American roots music. With songs such as ‘Let My Blues Take Your Blues Away’, ‘Fell in Mud’ and ‘Lit’ it comes as no surprise that Marcus Starr is emerging as one of Hamilton’s most compelling singer-songwriters and 'in demand' guitarists. Marcus has already begun preparing new material and has written a large collection of new songs for a follow up single and album.
“Songwriting is a craft that must never be taken for granted” says Marcus, “this is why I cannot stop writing new material. Writing a new song is an incredible feeling; as is telling a good story. Creating interesting characters for a song, that’s what it's all about.”
Marcus has been an avid player on Southern Ontario's music scene since 2010. From 2010-2016 Marcus played lead guitar with Radio Free Universe, who were discovered at a popular Toronto club, and recorded three records with RFU. Here he earned a reputation for being an exciting and dynamic performer. During this time, Marcus had performed roots, blues and country music with various side projects until finally leaving the band to pursue other musical directions full time, including his solo career in 2016.
