About Marcus Reeves
Writer and performer Marcus Reeves’ performance career spans work as an actor, stand-up comic, singer songwriter and performance poet. As part of London’s alternative cabaret scene he has performed alongside such luminaries as David Hoyle, Dickie Beau and Jonny Woo to name a few.
Through Mary King’s Voicelab, Marcus has performed at the Royal Festival Hall with Mercury Music Prize winners Elbow, jazz improvisation icon Bobby McFerrin and supported New York a capella group Naturally Seven in a choir led by UK jazz legend Ian Shaw. More recently he joined the London Gay Mens Chorus to sing on the debut EP from Fingersnap, the new project from David McAlmont and Guy Davies, sang in Our Lady J’s ‘Train-To-Kill’ gospel choir at Soho Theatre and supported Rupaul’s Drag Race star Adore Delano at The Meth Lab.
Mixing his roots as a singer songwriter with influences from musical theatre, pop, rock and dance music, Marcus has recently found his true voice with his own brand of ‘nouveau cabaret’ (as described by Vince Clarke of Erasure). With live performances, readings and screenings of his work at venues including BAC, the Cochrane Theatre, the Kings Head, the Southbank Centre and the ICA, Marcus continues to establish a firm reputation as a versatile man of words and music.
His debut solo album Quicksilver - The Masquerade Macabre is available now from the shop. He is currently developing a new song cycle The Dark Side of the World, re-working his project Postcards from God - The Sister Wendy Musical and recently launched his own YouTube chat show Behind the Mask, also available as a podcast with extra unaired material.
