Introducing…Marc Scibilia. Oh the Places You’ll Go! The Interview.

7

 

After the painstakingly long process of dealing with the po’ po’ from my lil’ ol’ car accident, I was finally on my way to Eddie’s Attic to see Drew Holcomb & The Neighbors perform. I was looking forward to this night because a) I got to see Drew Holcomb and b) I was hanging out with the fabulous four. AudreyAmandaJillianMyself. These are my musical go-to girls. Not only do they have impeccable taste in music, but they are equally as obsessed with music as I am….which makes me feel less like a freak. Score.

But I digress. Eddie Owen got onstage and told the crowd to silence their cell phones, hush up (it is a listening room, ya know), and he introduced the opening act, Marc Scibilia (who?) who had never performed at Eddie’s before. So on to the stage walks this tall, dark, and handsome man with a curly mess of hair. He straps on his guitar and the moment he opened his mouth, it was game on.

Marc was cracking jokes, saying that he only played the guitar to pay off his debt. And although it was a joke, you got the feeling that he really wasn’t in it for the money. The sold-out crowd was his, including the Fabulous 4 who all immediately bought his CD’s that night. As I was watching him, I heard a heavy dose of Bob Dylan’s influence but he has a decidedly younger appeal. I may or may not have illegally recorded songs that night, but here’s an audio clip that I “found”: Marc Scibilia How Bad We Need Each Other – Eddie’s Attic

My intuitive ears were ringing off the hook as I knew I needed to interview him. This guy had all the makings of a star. Confident on stage, humble in his delivery, self-deprecatingly funny, and I knew the chiseled features would get the girls, too. Oh yeah, and the guy’s super-talented. Marc is an accomplished musician and music producer. According to Wikipedia, he released his first solo piano album when he was 12! So I instantly contacted him and asked if I could interview him. Voila! Interview booked.

On a snowy and F-R-E-E-Z-I-N-G cold January day, I packed up the car, boyfriend in tow, and drove 3 1/2 hours to Nashville to interview an artist I didn’t know anything about a month before. I drove up to a small house that was converted into the Brown Owl studios, in a neighborhood about 15 minutes from downtown Nashville. The place had wall-to-wall vintage instruments and equipment and has no windows.

Marc Scibilia’s song “How Bad We Need Each Other” was featured on hit show Bones on 4/2/12 (lyrics below):

We also acknowledged that we BOTH have Lebanese heritage (This would please my father). We sat in his mixing studio with his actor friend, Josh and started the recording.

Under the Podcast section, this interview is posted with 3 songs recorded live exclusively for RadioPotato.com. You can even download it from iTunes.

I was surprised with how much more low key Marc is in real life. His father has roots as a singer/songwriter – and his mom is more of a businesswoman. Marc’s Lebanese grandmother still asks Marc when he’s going to become a doctor. Marc is an impulsive collector of instruments and carries Dr. Seuss’ Oh the Places You’ll Go with him. I got the sense that he’s wildly creative, accessible when he needs to be, and very kind. Marc told me that he also produces music for other artists as a ploy to avoid ever getting a real job. In the interview, Marc said that his proudest moment was playing in front of a crowd of 17,000 people for a rally in front of the Capital building in DC. Here’s a clip from the performance:

After the interview, it was time to experience Nashville. First, at Marc’s recommendation, the Purifires were playing a show at 3rd and Lindsley, a famous small venue in Nashville. Come to find out that Marc, has total jaw-dropping respect (i.e. man-crush) on the bass player, accomplished musician Michael Rhodes, who also performs with Marc on occasion. What a great show!   After we kicked it old school (for real) at famed country-western bar in Downtown, Nashville, Robert’s our trip was a wrap. Marc’s fans are extremely loyal and his Facebook Fan Page has people all over the country requesting him to tour in their towns. Thanks to his fans, his newest EP, From Brooklyn to Maine keeps selling out in hard copy but you can download it now right HERE. To Marc, Oh, the places you’ll go… I leave you with this breathtaking video of Marc performing the sweet ditty “Better Man” in his home. His EP releases on June 5, 2012.

Lyrics to Marc Scibilia’s “How Bad We Need Each Other:

Life is too far to walk alone
you can’t do it on your own
its like bare hands digging through stone

and if things go down much steeper hills
even money wont pay these bills
but time will show

people gonna be ok
storms never come to stay
they just show us
how bad we need each other
how bad we need each other

and the trials of today
they are signs along the way
to remind us
how bad we need each other
how bad we need each other

and I can get so high
on myself sometimes
I keep on drifting a million miles
from this planet

but what a shame it would be
to look back on this life
and realize that Ive taken you and you
for granted

people gonna be ok
storms never come to stay
they just show us
how bad we need each other
how bad we need each other

and the trials of today
they are signs along the way
to remind us
how bad we need each other
how bad we need each other

and I cannot see whats a mile around the bend
i do not know where this world is headed
or where it may end

but you gave me this smile
and so i threw away my frown
and I ain’t gonna pick up
what I just put down

people gonna be ok
storms never come to stay
they just show us
how bad we need each other
how bad we need each other

and the trials of today
they are signs along the way
to remind us
how bad we need each other
how bad we need each other

    Thanks for your support, Shani! I appreciate it. Hope all is well in your neck of the woods-

  4. Paul McConaughy (minutrition) says:

    I love it…funny thing is I plugged his song in before I started reading and, as someone who grew up with Bob Dylan, that was my immediate response…he is definitely Dylanesque!

    Of course I don’t get the tall, dark and handsome angle so I’ll have to be happy with the mad guitar and great poetry…along with the vocals of course.

  5. Donna Webster says:

    I was recently introduced to Marc’s music and I think he is something special – what a talented young man. His Fixity CD is amazing. It ‘s hard to imagine how someone so young can have such depth and intensity. I think everyone that is a fan is excited to see how his career is blossoming.

  6. Allison Rizk says:

    I agree, Donna! Thanks for your comments. Marc is a special dude-

  7. Mark Weber says:

    Marc Scibilia is one of my favorite recording artists. I knew him when he was a teenager and wanted to do nothing but praise and worship music for the church. I told him he should go for a bigger audience with that gift of his– and he has, and his music continues to inspire me and countless others.
