Marcus Giel is one of the most poular Artists on this site-with a fiery passion for truth-
learned on my own to play the guitar at the age of 7, one year after I listened for the first time to "Can't buy me love"" many years after the Beatles had already split. My father who used to play 4 different instruments and passed away at the end of March 2010 was the one who introduced me to music and Simon & Garfunkel and showed me the first 4 accords. The Beatles had a tremendeous impact on me even though my style has nothing in common with the Beatles sound. Nevertheless, listening to the Beatles and reading about George Harrison was the other reason why I learned to play. Up to this day I have never taken lessons and tried to come up with my own style. Fame? Not important, or let's better say not as important as loving your own music and being able to sent messages and express emotions even without lyrics. I used to play for years with a German band called the ""Subway Riders"". After many years of simply not having the time to play I decided at the end of June 2008 to finally record all the songs which I had in my head for too long. Accordingly, I composed, recorded and mixed 126 songs within a year. My songs are the result of the inspiration of the most wonderful people one can meet in a lifetime, and god's blessing, I am grateful.... and enligthened. For the moment all songs were recorded with cheap headphones into my computer and than mixed with soundforge. I am planning to record the best songs in a professional studio in a few weeks.
