About the Artist
Marcus Rezak carves out a distinguished style in the world of guitar with several cutting-edge groups such as Shred is Dead, Digital Tape Machine, Stratosphere All-Stars, Katharsis, and Supernatural Beings in addition to frequent engagements as an artist-at-large. Known as a master of jazz improvisation with a knack for the art of the sit-in, Rezak is a frequent call among bands and musicians carving out his unique niche in the performance world. Having a commanding stage presence, Rezak takes the euphoric freedom of live music and directs its path into a unique approach, as if every jam is a live recording session. Rezak’s 2018 debut as a bandleader saw him collaborating alongside Kris Myers and Joel Cummins of Umphrey’s McGee, Arthur Barrow of Frank Zappa’s band, and legendary saxophonist Bill Evans. Since then, he has toured across the US with eclectic lineups featuring the likes of Ike Willis, Kris Myers, Jay Lane, Scott Page, and more; led his band through two tours through the US Virgin Islands; spearheaded official Umphrey’s McGee afterparties, and continued to hone his chops in his home studio and licensing endeavors. ‘Truth in Sound’ is Rezak’s most recent venture featuring members of Trey Anastasio Band, esteemed percussionist Kaylan Pathak, and more. The ability to keep exceptionally comprehensive mental notes on what works, what doesn’t, and how to improve have garnered Rezak much-deserved respect in the music world and have leveraged his ability to take his craft to integral heights.
