      Marcus Boyd did a fabulous job as always; however, I was unable to watch the LIVE stream very well...kept having to re-upload the page, which was aggravating. I eventually stopped watching.

Marcus grew up in and has lived most of his life close to his roots in Southwest Virginia. He learned to play guitar at the age of 8 and played in church growing up. His love for music brought him to learn to play piano, bass, banjo and mandolin as well.

Marcus broadened his horizons in his college days at Clinch Valley College (now UVA Wise), where he met several talented musicians of differing styles and spent many evenings collaborating.

Marcus grew up playing country, bluegrass and gospel music and later became acquainted with rock, blues and classical styles. Some of his professional influences include Tom Petty, Garth Brooks, Vince Gill, Leo Kottke, Van Halen, and Counting Crows.

Marcus has two sons, Blake and Cameron, who are the joys of his life. Marcus is a sports fan through and through, pulling for his beloved Detroit Tigers, Chicago Bears and UVA Cavaliers.

A self-made business man, Marcus has been blessed success at many different ventures. As his sons have gotten older, Marcus has gotten back into live performing. Nowadays Marcus is back to his favorite genre, country music. His music is a subtle blend of traditional country, bluegrass, modern country and rock.

Lately, Marcus has spent more time working on original music. Painting vivid pictures of his own life, songs like I Gotta Go, Route 22, End of our Song, The Bird, Leavin’ Virginia, Beer League, Tuesday Sunset, Take A Little Walk with You, Real Man and Gonna Love You show some of the many facets of his life. His music has attracted attention in Nashville and beyond. He recently made it through open auditions of NBC's The Voice!

Marcus plays venues all over Virginia, the Carolinas, Kentucky, Tennessee and West Virginia and enjoys the live aspect of performing. His self-produced album "The Bird" was released in February 2014 and is available on iTunes, Amazon, Google Play Store, eMusic and other online music retailers.
