ARC is the first acoustic solo record by Craig Marcus. With beautifully constructed melodies and haunting passages, ARC weaves a tale of self acceptance. From the rapid finger-picking style of 'Festival' to the flamenco-style 'Casa Del Luna', ARC showcases Craig's guitar playing while delivering a tranquil mood that any music lover would enjoy. Born in Bergen County, New Jersey, Craig Marcus started playing guitar at age 15. Influenced by guitar greats such as Alex Lifeson (Rush), Jimmy Page (Led Zeppelin), the Edge (U2), Rik Emmett and Eric Johnson, Craig taught himself how to play using tablature and sheet music, as opposed to learning from a teacher or direct mentor. Additionally, Craig studied classical piano, further diversifying his musical talents. Voted 'Best Musician' by his high school classmates, this up and coming musician was a member of numerous bands and was mapping out his plan to conquer the burgeoning NJ music scene.
