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 proud to announce the release of Invisible Lines - his fourth solo record.
Following the success of his 2016 solo LP Versions of The Truth, Marcus has emerged as one of the leading lights of the new generation of American singer-songwriters. Through passionate and intelligent lyrics in songs reminiscent of Ed Sheeran and John Mayer, Marcus’ music draws the listener into an intimate experience. Coupled with a virtuoso, original guitar technique, songs of love and metaphysics all wrapped in an original singing voice are performed by an artist described by Crosby "as like God - on a good day."
Marcus has an extensive touring history and having had his own band, Marcus Eaton Trio, he now primarily performs solo. Marcus has opened for artists such as Bob Dylan and Dave Matthews, Derek Trucks, Dr John and Rodrigo Y Gabriela. A very busy couple of years which included gigs in LA with Seal and Flea, solo tours across Europe and scoring the soundtrack to the acclaimed David Crosby documentary ‘Remember My Name’ have seen Marcus working at the peak of his creativity, the end result of which is the release of this brand new record.
Comprising five original compositions and a cover of the Sting classic ‘Fragile’, all songs were recorded in the United States between 2017 and the early part of this year. Marcus is thrilled and upbeat : “Invisible Lines is better than anything I have ever done, especially my guitar work. My guitar is more creative than it’s ever been and I feel really, really excited about what I’m doing and how the music is turning out.” Internationally recognised as an innovative and highly imaginative guitarist, Marcus has recently received the singular honour of having a signature guitar named after him created by luthier Roy McAlister.
Son of songwriter Steve Eaton and a native of Idaho, Marcus is based in Los Angeles and divides his time between California and Italy.
