Marcus Machado Armed and dangerously good!
Sure, many have come to know talented, Brooklyn-based guitarist, Marcus Machado by way of his winning Rolling Stone Magazine and D’Addario’s Next Young Gun competition in 2014, beating out scores of young players. But truth be told, he was actually and aptly stamped with the prodigy tag long before that. As a young teenager he was ripping the stage and turning heads with outstanding play that belied his age and in the years since, gaining praise and valuable opportunity from veteran performers like soul/R&B luminaries, The Family Stand, bassist extraordinaire Victor Bailey, and acclaimed MC Pharaohe Monch to name a few, along the way. Now with loads of experience and industry buzz Marcus is poised for a formal breakout. His EP 29, released on the Purpose Music Group imprint, opened more eyes to his musical brew of rock, soul, jazz, blues, and funk and serves as the perfect appetizer for a full scale project planned for later this year.
