Marcus Volk

Born in 1971 and experimenting with sound since he was 5 years old, Marcus Volk's musical endeavors have taken him on a colorful ride. His mom's Elvis records were the first to bend his ear. Fast forward to his late teens and heavy metal became the focus. He became compelled to create the most extreme and complex music possible and the results left him wanting.

A few life events and a few years later he found himself immersed in solo instrumental music, realizing that speed and volume were not necessities to be heavy and intense. Marcus focused on minimalist acoustic music starting in 1997, and since 2013 has been crossing over into some kind of neo-folk, singer/songwriter thing. Some career highlights include the Main Stage at the Oregon Country Fair and The Experience Music Project / Northwest Folklife Festival.
