Marcus Eaton West Coast Spring Tour

When singer-songwriter Marcus Eaton was asked to play and co-write on forthcoming album with Rock And Roll Hall of Famer, David Crosby, it was not a big surprise. Thanks to a strange turn of luck, Crosby has been a long-time influence and fan of the powerhouse performer from Boise, ID. Just one of many auspicious experiences dotting Eaton's career things are looking bright for the young performer who is taking his trio on the road for a short national tour this spring.

Known for a clear and inviting voice coupled with dazzling guitar work, Eaton and his band will be making stops in a number of key cities in support of his latest independent release As if You Had Wings (Feb, 2011) available exclusively on his website and at shows. One of five albums bearing Eaton's name, the latest release has received rave reviews with its radio-ready format and brilliant pop-friendly appeal. The band, also featuring bassist Ben Burleigh and powerhouse drummer Kevin Rogers will be playing a number of opening slots with Tim Reynolds TR3 along with a number of headlining slots booked along the way.

In just a few short years, the band who has been likened to such vaunted trios as Cream, Rush and the Police has received lavish praise from music authorities across the board including Crosby, who has courted a 2-year collaborative relationship with Eaton in the making of his latest album, yet to be released . Throughout his career, Eaton has performed at venues vast and intimate including four consecutive years alongside Dave Matthews at the 20,000-capacity Gorge Amphitheatre side stage and on a local level, his CD release party at The Knitting Factory in Boise crammed the concert hall well beyond its official 999-seat capacity.

Eaton and his band will be making rounds all along the West Coast and Mountain States this spring including stops in Seattle, Denver, Salt Lake, Tacoma and Portland and is not to be missed.

Soul Rebels Brass Band & Marcus Eaton Trio @ Boulder Theater

Radio 1190's Krewe de Louisianne, KGNU & Boulder Weekly present:
**FREE SHOW** SOUL REBELS BRASS BAND & MARCUS EATON TRIO
Friday, June 12
doors 8:30pm, show 9:00pm

Imagine blending the sounds of Mardi Gras funk, soft rock, and reggae so seemingly it defies category. Now shrink that idea into a seven-piece ensemble, add a hip hop sensibility plus a hundred years of New Orleans jazz tradition, and you'll get the Louisiana sound known as the Soul Rebels. After parading around the streets of New Orleans in the traditions of the second line and jazz funerals, the Soul Rebels began their professional debut with the famed Neville Brothers in New Orleans at the Hot Spot Tipitina's! The Soul Rebels rocked so hard and so strong they continued opening for the Neville Brothers and beyond. The band was featured in Spike Lee's HBO Documentary "When the Levees Broke".

Marcus Eaton's lyrics often reflect the natural beauty that surrounded him growing up on top of a mountain in rural Idaho, but the level of talent of this entirely self-taught singer/songwriter/guitarist is world-class. Listener friendly, but steeped in technique - Marcus combines challenging rhythms with ornate melodies that glide with the appeal of mainstream pop songs. Incorporating rock, reggae, flamenco, classical, jazz and folk, it is Marcus' distinctive songwriting that gives this music its farthest reach. Captivating audiences wherever he plays with his guitar mastery and clear voice, Marcus Eaton is on the verge of all-out success. Performances include shows with Jake Shimabukuro, Rodrigo Y Gabriela, Dave Matthews Band, Tim Reynolds, Victor Wooten, Train, Bob Dylan, Jewel, and many others.
