Marc Marcel is one of the world’s most recognized and prolific Poets of our generation. Born and raised in Baltimore, MD, diagnosed with Dyslexia at the age of 10, Marc has far exceeded the boundaries brought on by his early disability. Not only does he travel the world performing Spoken Word, but he is also a published Novelist, Producer and Public Speaker. Several months after completing the first draft of his first published novel, ‘Saint Thomas,’ Marc, a Novelist at heart, started writing poetry in Atlanta GA in 1999, in efforts to place a poem at the end of that book that would give the same overall message. Little did he know at the time that he would turn poetry on the Page, into one of the rawest art forms witnessed on Stage. After publishing his first novel, he then published his first book of poetry, ‘Unchained,’ and since has released 15 Spoken Word CDs. Performing in over 150 American Cities and 4 Countries, he has also showcased, performed and/or held workshops for over 40 Universities, with Harvard, Yale, Morehouse and the University of Florida just a few to name. Having made 5 National Television appearances, including Lyrics Café, No Reservations, and a skit for The Jimmy Kimmel Show, he has also graced the stages of many legendary venues, the Smithsonian in Washington DC for the 2009 Presidential Inaugural Peace Ball for President Obama, as well as performing for Scion Night at Knots Scary Farm, in front of 12,000 people. Through his performances he captures the emotions and feelings of several issues including politics, love, spirituality, self-revelation and the everyday struggles of life. Candid, thought-provoking, revealing, clever and honest are just a few descriptions of Marc’s work. Throughout his career, he has written thousands of unreleased poems, several unreleased novels and has produced hundreds of underground tracks. He is Spoken Word, at its rawest, highest level of performance!
