Both collections of guitar-laced original Americana had stellar collaborations such as Jeff Espinoza (Red House, Lou Marini) and Ramón Arroyo (Los Secretos). In recent years Marco has toured or collaborated with artists such as Sid Griffin (The Long Ryders), Gene Taylor (Canned Heat, The Blasters) or Luthea Salom. *During these difficult months worldwide he’s been honing his observation on what makes us persevere with humility from heartache to heartache (title of one of his new songs), channeling it onto tracks for a new album (“Back to the Plow”) slated to be released in the Spring of 2021. Recording all himself in his home studio during lockdown, a new single comprising three songs will be released by Christmas 2020 and the final collection will close a trilogy with his previous two efforts.* “Fans of Loudon Wainwright III or James Taylor will find their favorite music on this album.” www.rootstime.be (Belgium) “Marco R. Wagner plays a classic folk-rock or, folk music from the old ‘American school’.” Blaskans vänner (Sweden) “’Music Love Magic’, his latest album, is a record made with the love of someone who minds to the extreme his condition as a rooted artist. And in it we find songs such as ‘February’ with a sound that brings to mind an early Gordon Lightfoot (Manolo Fernandez , radio 3 Spain)
