Since the release of his two critically acclaimed albums My Friend Marx in 2011 and Human Herdings in 2014, Marc has established himself as one of the most exciting artists within the singer-songwriter genre. His husky vocals and phenomenal guitar playing gain him comparisons with artists such as John Martyn and Ray Lamontagne.
2016 saw Marc tour all over Europe including appearances at major festivals like Glastonbury, Electric Picnic, Eurosonic, Reeperbahn and squeezing in a trip to the US to appear at the Folk Alliance Festival in Kansas City.
O’Reilly’s latest album with the band L’etre Politique came out in March 2018. LP, meaning “political being” is as it’s title suggests, a political commentary. It deals with the politics of human interactions, from one on one friendships to more broader global themes of capitalism, war and globalisation. It offers an introspective look on universal issues-political beings, being political and the politics of being.
Marc recently released an EP together with Danish bassist Jasper Høiby called ‘The Monique Sessions’, which features 3 of Marc’s songs performed in an acoustic duo format.
