MARCUS EATON BIO
Marcus Eaton is a world class singer-songwriter, guitarist and composer known for his work as a solo artist and collaboration with two-time Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee David Crosby. He hailed Marcus as "one of the best young singer-songwriters in America - maybe even the world. And he plays guitar like god on a good day."
Marcus and David’s musical collaboration evolved over their shared interests in innovative guitar tunings and songwriting aesthetics. Marcus ended up co-writing a number of songs, singing harmony, and joining Crosby's legendary band on tour and television and radio appearances. When it came time to score the documentary David Crosby: Remember My Name premiering in competition at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival, director A.J. Eaton wanted to channel Crosby's original jazz influences and the '60s-era Laurel Canyon acoustic rock scene. And Marcus, A.J.'s brother, was a perfect choice.
In 2021 Marcus played guitar and worked on the score for the blockbuster Netflix film: The Harder They Fall.
He went viral on TikTok with his rendition of The Last of the Mohicans with a Pickaso guitar bow.
Marcus has a new album tentatively titled 'What Is Real' set for release in 2023. He was raised in Idaho and splits his time between Los Angeles and Italy.
