Marc Enfroy

Inspired by the death of his sister from melanoma, Marc Enfroy (pronounced EN-froy) began teaching himself to compose music in 2006. By interweaving beautiful instrumental piano melodies with touching orchestral arrangements in a style he calls Cinematic Piano, Marc has soothed many hearts with his warm and original compositions. This prompted radio broadcasters worldwide to bestow Marc with the Best Neo-Classical Album Award for his debut CD, "Unbounded", in the 2008 NAR Lifestyle Music Awards, where he also received a nomination for Best New Artist. His follow-up CD, a neo-classical album titled "Awakening", was a finalist in the 2009 Zone Music Reporter Awards and is aired on the Music Choice Soundscapes channel, Sirius/XM Spa, public radio and Internet music stations around the world. Marc's latest work, "Unconditional", has also seen widespread airplay and was named one of the Best Albums of 2011 by NewAgeMusicWorld.com and MainlyPiano.com.

From an early age, Marc was exposed to all kinds of music. He was always excited when his family would visit his grandfather, country music pioneer Bradley Kincaid, who happily performed for the family with his trusty “Hound Dog Guitar.” Thanks to his grandfather’s gift of a Hammond organ, Marc began to learn about playing keyboard at the age of eight. He got his first guitar when he was eleven-years-old and for most of his teen years, he and his Fender Stratocaster rocked with riffs from Aerosmith to ZZ Top. He spent hour after hour carefully listening to and imitating his favorite bands, and eventually developed the ability to play by ear.

Years later, Marc fell madly in love with a girl named Kelly and they eventually wed. Music took a back seat as his life became centered on raising their three sons —Adam, Alex, and Michael. Marc built a solid career in the software business, but his love for music never faded.

After the tragic loss of his sister, Marc was inspired to follow in her artistic footsteps and began composing music. He wrote from within, searching for chord progressions and melody lines that were emotionally compelling and moving. He says, “With a lot of encouragement and suggestions from my brother Paul, and his strong musical ear, I kept on writing. After about eight months, I started to hit my stride and found that creating piano songs, backed by orchestral strings and subtle choirs, created the mood I was looking for.” Eventually, everyone who heard his songs said they sounded like music you’d hear in a film, which prompted Marc to christen his style: Cinematic Piano. “If you hear one of my songs and it creates a poignant scene in your mind, like in a film, I’m happy. If you keep coming back to that song and scene, escaping to that feeling again and again, I’m ecstatic because I moved you and that’s what I’m after — a moving escape for the listener.”
