Marc gears up for his lead single and music video entitled, “Redheads” debuting this summer. “Redheads” is Daniels’ playful ode to the type of girl he can’t resist. With grinding riffs and an infectious hook, Marc keeps the song fun and light-hearted as he confesses that his friends have called him crazy and even suggested therapy to treat his irresistible love for redheads.
Marc Daniels started his music career in the rural surroundings of Spokane, WA where he grew up in a family of very talented singers and musicians. Understanding the importance and value of music, Marc was enrolled in piano lessons in elementary school which he proceeded to take through high school. Marc drew much of his inspiration from bands ranging in various rock and country genres such as Def Leppard, Pink Floyd, Tim McGraw and Garth Brooks. It wasn’t until his early twenties that he began taking on a more active role as a singer and front man for several bands in the Pacific Northwest. On the road, Marc toured through many premier venues nationwide such as The Viper Room (Los Angeles), El Corazon, Studio 7 (Seattle) and Maggie McGarries (San Francisco), to name a few. Daniels also performed in a slew of notable venues in his hometown Spokane such as, Knitting Factory, Riverfront Park, Washington State University, Spokane Convention Center and more! Through many years of performance, Marc refined his songwriting, showmanship and picked up the guitar through various original bands and solo projects, most notably the song “See Your Face” from his first solo EP The Side of Me, which was featured in the comedy film, “Road Hard.”
In the fall of 2015, Marc decided to change the direction of his music style and originate back to his roots to create a heavily influenced country-rock album. Marc entered the studio to write a driving, high energy nine-song collection that reminisced of his summers growing up back home on the lakes of Northern Idaho and weekends playing gigs on flatbed trucks at bonfire college parties at WSU.
Now Marc Daniels continues the next chapter of his music career in Northern California with the release of The Starting Line - a montage to all the great memories of those carefree years back home.
