Marc Von Em

Marc Von Em is a soulfully energized singer/songwriter whose sound flows easily between folk, blues & funk. Driven by his fluid acoustic guitar playing, rich powerful voice, and comfortable stage presence, Marc’s live shows never fail to excite audiences.

Marc began his solo career in 1999 when he self produced and released his first solo CD “Von Em”. He has since released 3 more recordings, the most recent entitled “CRASH BOOM POW”. Marc’s belief is that an artist not be limited to one genre, and his collection of original songs are a testament to that, running the gamut from solo acoustic finger-picking to full band funk.

Along with his independent music, Von Em also performs as a back up vocalist and guitarist for Rob Thomas (Matchbox 20) finishing his third world tour with Rob at the end of 2016. Marc is signed to Pure Pop Music, a music publishing company representing writers in various genres of popular music. Since joining Pure Pop, Marc has been spending time in Nashville writing songs with some of Music Cities best writers. He is also represented by VAMNation Entertainment Management as a vocalist on high-profile globally broadcast commercials, and also works with HAUS Music NYC, collaborating wish musicians, composers, producers, bands & publishing scoring soundtracks for movie and commercial use.

Constantly inspired, Marc continues to hone his brand of original music and his live shows always have something new to offer.  He s a one man band of sorts, able to create an impressive array of music with just his voice and one faithful guitar. His chops are wide-ranging from delicate finger picking to raw, rambunctious strumming. Marc’s guitar serves as more than one instrument as he uses it to create percussive beats and atmospheric sounds. His dynamic voice can go from smooth & soaring to smoky scatting. Marc’s harmonica playing is equally impressive, and he sometimes uses it to accompany his blues influenced original songs. His soulful live performances showcase his original music, influenced by folk, funk and blues, with a few choice cover songs woven in. As one reviewer wrote: “If you haven’t seen Marc Von Em perform live you’re only cheating yourself.
