One event on October 3, 2020 at 7:00 pm
Join us Friday, October 2nd for our live broadcast performance by Marcus Eaton! Recently hailed by two-time Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee David Crosby as “one of the best young singer-songwriters in America – maybe even the world”, MARCUS EATON is receiving international acclaim through his music which has redefined the acoustic rock genre. Brought up in the wilds of Idaho, the son of songwriter Steve Eaton (The Carpenters, Art Garfunkel, etc.) and grandson of professional opera singers, Marcus grew up immersed in music. He began performing professionally in bars and clubs long before he was legally old enough to patronize them and at the age of just 21, following two independently released albums, he and his band The Lobby caught the attention of MCA/Universal and recorded The Day the World Awoke (2003), reviewed as ‘one of the best examples of intelligent acoustic rock in a long time’.
In 2011, Marcus was invited by David Crosby to play guitar on songs that were the foundations of ‘Croz’ which would become, in 2014, Crosby’s first solo album in over twenty years. Throughout a near two-year recording process, a kindred musical collaboration evolved with Marcus not only featuring prominently as a guitarist along with an ensemble of legendary Crosby band mates, but also co-writing a number of songs and singing harmonies with arguably one of the best harmonizers in rock music. In early 2014, Marcus joined Crosby’s band for a sold-out US tour that included stops at legendary institutions such as The Troubadour and San Francisco’s Great American Music Hall as well as an appearance on TV’s Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. When asked about working with Marcus, Crosby said, “He’s a really brilliant writer. Brilliant musically. Brilliant lyrically. And he just plays guitar like God on a good day.”
In addition to performing solo, with The Lobby and the Trio, Marcus’ extensive touring history includes opening shows for Bob Dylan and Dave Matthews, Nils Lofgren, Dr John and Rodrigo Y Gabriela. After an extensive European and UK tour with his own band, Eaton returned to the US and wrote the score for the documentary his brother A.J. Eaton was directing about Crosby. David Crosby: Remember My Name premiered at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival, was hailed by Rolling Stone as “one of the best rock docs of all time,” and nominated for a Grammy. The show begins at 7pm PST, and there is a $5-!5 donation to receive the private link. The link will be sent via email roughly 15 minutes before showtime. No refunds
