KONETIUK - NAMMY Nominated poet/songwriter/producer Marco Capelli Frucht has played 40 states and two Provinces including AZ, Colo., NM, Ont., the Carolinas, Dakotas & of course closer to home in CT/NY/RI.
Marco likes classical and folk mostly, but he also likes punk, pop and parody music. He used to play bass in a three-piece Christian Heavy Metal band called "POE," (Peace On Earth) so if you hear a weird influence now and then it's probably just loose eardrums.
"If you think the music you're hearing here is eclectic, you should hear what I do when I'm playing out in the streets!" he once told someone in the mezzanine to a Green Bay, Wisconsin theatre where he was playing classical guitar before nine showings of Phantom Of The Opera's bus- and-truck group. He didn't know it at the time but the woman he was telling this to was Sarah Brightman's Broadway understudy. She went on to lead both on Broadway and in the touring companies. Marco currently plays every day in the summer at an amusement park, and hibernates in the fall, winter and spring.
Playing guitar since age 14...
...writing songs even longer.
First album, unsigned, unpublished, and unpromoted was titled "Hootenany Green." Copyrighted 1989 as a demo on digital audio tape (DAT) and cassette only. Sold 50 copies on first printing and 150 on the second. Contains 8 songs and a commercial.
The demo also includes "Hey Mon," written in 1988 and digitized as a midi file by Carl Franklin. The music from it can be heard on any computer that has a sound-blaster built in. Or look for it in search engines as reggae.mid Marco has more than 900 original songs, but he's only happy with 300 or so.
Writes whenever he's awake and completes the math while he's asleep and dreaming.
Marco is a Pisces, loves long walks in the park, the color purple, poetry and everything besides Proctor&Gamble products - IE: Pringles, Puffs, Olean, Pantene, Prell and Pepto-Bismo.
