“Guitarist to Watch” – Australian Guitar Magazine
Marcus Wynwood’s resume is as extensive as it is impressive. Not only a founding member of punk-rock band Captives, but he’s also riffed to crowds from the Falls Festival main stage, Envol et Macadam Festival (Quebec), Festivals at The Espy as well as support slots for COG, Shihad, Tumbleweed, The Damned and Gay Paris to name a few.
The D’Addario-endorsed artist focused his attention in late 2020 on his solo work. Featured in Australian Guitar Magazine as a “Guitarist to Watch”, Marcus has well and truly earned the title with latest single Little Space.
Featuring poignant and reflective lyrics, distorted and expertly layered vocals with unforgettable and hard-hitting guitar riffs, Little Space proves Marcus’ talent. Sonically Marcus has crafted the sound to surround the listener – adding to the comforting message behind the song.
Speaking of the tender meaning behind the tune, he says “The message I wanted to get across with this song is that no matter what’s going on in your life or how dark it gets, there is always a place for you. There’s a little space where you belong.”
After an extensive career including touring both domestically and internationally, Marcus Wynwood well and truly understands the artistry in crafting a song. Undulating between tender and passionate, Little Space is a song that feels simultaneously both energising and comforting, not an easy feat to achieve.
This new single was written, performed, and recorded by Marcus Wynwood in Penguin, lutruwita (Tasmania). It was mixed by Jon Grace (Bakers Eddy, Dear Seattle) and mastered by Samuel K Sproull (The Getaway Plan, Bodyjar). These creative influences have come together in a sonic union of talent, combining the masterful touch of three different musicians.
The accompanying music video, created by Moon Cheese Studio in Devonport, lutruwita (Tasmania), follows the journey of mini-Marcus as he battles with the trials and tribulations of everyday life within the confines of his own head. “I’ve always wanted to have an animated clip, and the message of belonging in this song suited it perfectly. The viewer goes inside my head and sees what’s happening in my mind.”
