Marc Bridge

Marc Bridge has been characterized as "a story teller with a guitar who uses modern day society, politics and relationships to weave an entertaining view of life through his twisted lens.  It's the *twist* that he puts on topics that makes his songs and performances unique and memorable..." Says Bridge: "My style reflects the influences of the folk, rock and country music that I grew up with in addition to my love for social and political satire."
American dReam, his debut CD, will take you on a journey through the faults, endearments, and quirks of modern American society. Marc's CD has garnered wide acclaim, as well as several songwriting competition awards and prizes, including a refrigerator (ask him about it)!  

Marc's Bio:   
It was the summer of 1969 and my father had orders to Vietnam.  On the evening before he departed, he taught me the chords to "Home on the Range" on his Harmony arch top guitar.  He left the guitar in my keeping and asked me to play him the song when he returned.  I practiced till my fingers bled and I was ready for him when he returned. That spark caught fire when the fateful events of September 11, 2001 inspired me to pick up a pen, and my guitar and write my first song, I haven't stopped since.  I write and perform in between my other life as a husband, father and high tech industry sales manager.  It certainly makes life interesting and gives me mountains of material to write about every day. 

I suppose you would call me a Folk Singer/Songwriter which is a fancy way of saying that I'm a story teller with a guitar who uses modern day society, politics and relationships to weave an entertaining view of life through my twisted lens. It's the "twist" that I put on topics that makes my songs and performances unique and memorable. My style reflects the influences of the folk, rock and country music that I grew up with in addition to my love for social and political satire.  Some of the artists that had the biggest impact me were, The Beatles, Crosby Stills Nash and Young, James Taylor, Warren Zevon, Arlo Guthrie and Loudon Wainwright III and more recently, Richard Shindell and Antje Duvekot.  Their influence is unmistakable throughout my music. 

I hope you'll come with me on this musical journey, I don't know where it will take us but I do know we will have a few laughs along the way.
