Simon Marks has reunited with some of Australia’s finest musicians including Ben Franz (The Waifs) and Syd Green (19- Twenty) to record his fourth release “Big River, Little Stories”.
Recently relocating to a small town on the banks of the Murray River inspired Marks to write and record “Big River, Little Stories”. Life among the majestic red gums and by the river’s edge evoked the album’s theme based around the area, its people, and the move to life in country Victoria.
One of Australia’s most endearing singer-songwriters, Simon Marks is nothing if not adaptable. He has toured the globe, and the country intensively over the last decade, and in that, shares with his loyal listeners a saddlebag of stories about life, love and loss. Sometimes sad, sometimes funny, but always captivating, Simon remains one of Australia’s most remarkable storytellers with his live shows are a true joy to be part of… and to be experienced at least once in your lifetime.
From folk to rock to blues, Simon Marks captivated the crowd with sincerity, passion and talent”
As one of Australia’s most loved and endearing singer songwriters Marks does not disappoint with this latest single ‘MISFIT’ – a foot stomping, smile inducing folk song about life, love and self perception, an absolute classic.
