Marc Reeves – Remember Me

After taking a look at the sleeve notes the first thing to note is that Marc plays the majority of the instruments on ‘Remember Me’ himself, the second thing to note is his voice, subtle and strong it brings to mind Damien Rice, Tom McRae and Ben Christophers. Finally by track four ‘Headlights’ you should also realise that Marc writes some incredible songs as good as anything out there by his contemporaries, ‘It doesn’t matter where you started, because we’ve all got the same destination’ he sings, just one of the many great lines that pepper his writing. There are sixteen tracks here and apart from a couple that could fade into the background most demand your attention either because they are structured well musically or they sound like old friends because despite his age Marc writes very maturely, ‘Judgement Day’ and ‘Easy Way Out’ being fine examples. With solid material and hints at experimentation like the outro to ‘What You Want To’ bigger things beckon for this talented singer/songwriter.
