From that point on, I’ve enjoyed so many adventures following the music through folk, blues, funk, experimental soundscapes, and scoring film. But in the end, it seems I always come back to Claudette, that sweet hunk of wood I’ve been carrying around with me for 50 years. (She’s a Guild D40)
It seemed perfectly natural that now, sequestered for a year, Claudette and I would record an album at home… Everybody Wants My Hat. There’s something unique about playing and/or recording at home. At the same time its both lonely and delightful.
This recording has given me the opportunity to express the love and joy I feel for my family altogether and my granddaughter, Lola Simone, in particular. These songs express my hopes for the future as well as the concerns so many of us share.
But now I’m just thinking about getting back. Back to the way things were. Back to playing on the road. Then again, you never get back to where you’ve been. You always get back to where you’re going.
We are singers and musicians from the different part of the world united to make wonderful music experiences for everyone in the world.
I started writing this collection during a joyful monthlong visit to Berlin to meet my just-born granddaughter, Lola Simone. I then completed it while sequestered under the shadow of Covid 19. Altogether, its meant as an intimate celebration… at home, on we go with ‘Tears of Joy’.BUY NOW

Marc Black is pure gold. We came away feeling richer. Not only from the joy we shared, but also from the thoughtful, profound energy his music brings. We cannot thank him enough.

Marc’s music is intelligent and musical. His live shows are always fresh, natural and extremely entertaining. That’s why he’s played the Towne Crier dozens of times.

Just him and his old guitar and a speaker, the old t-shirt and jeans and cool sneakers and old white hat…and pure creativity is rolling off him like water
