Marc Leon has been associated with many bands and artists who now form a part of Australian Music History. He has earned the respect of his peers as a musician who is not afraid to take on new challenges and constantly works on refining his skills as a composer and performer.
Marc began his musical career in 1960 as lead singer in local Rock & Roll bands. He taught himself how to play the guitar, started to write songs and by 1964, his band The D-Men, recorded three 45RPM singles on CBS, featuring Marc's songs. In 1966, Marc's musical interests shifted towards Jazz, Blues and R&B (Soul). He was influenced by musicians such as Ray Charles, BB King, Wes Montgomery and the Soul artists on the "Stax" label.
Marc moved to Melbourne in 1968 to join the Vibrants, a Rock band with three number one hit records. The band broke up six months later and Marc formed "Graduate" with two other Vibrants members, to play a diverse range of music, including Jazz, Blues, Latin and Rock. Graduate survived in various line-ups for 10 years and the band's extensive tour schedule included all Australian states, as well as six months in S.E. Asia.
Over the years, Marc has shared the stage with many International acts like The Kinks, Mungo Jerry, Bee Gees, Jose Feliciano, Fairport Convention, Burl Ives and Roberta Flack. Marc was also in demand as a studio session musician, as well as guitarist and musical director for a number of Australia's Top Celebrities, including John Farnham, Colleen Hewett, Normie Rowe and John St. Peeters. He also taught guitar for many years in music schools and his home studio.
Some of Marc's songs have made it into the finals of the American Song Festival (1976) and the MBAS Blues Performer Of The Year contest (1995).
In July 2009, two of Marc’s CDs, *Special Edition* and *Horizons* were released for Digital Distribution on Amazon, iTunes, Napster, Rhapsody and eMusic. Single tracks or the full albums are available for down-loads at these On-line Stores.
Marc currently performs with *The Old Buzzards Medicine Show* - and as a soloist on acoustic guitar.
