‘a new Tim Rice’ – Elaine Paige
‘a man of enormous imagination’ – Sister Wendy Beckett
‘a genius – a maestro – a misfit’ – David Hoyle
Over the last two decades, writer and performer Marcus Reeves has reinvented himself repeatedly, with incarnations as an actor, singer songwriter and performance poet. His show Postcards from God – The Sister Wendy Musical has been presented at Jermyn Street Theatre in London’s West End and at Hackney Empire Studio Theatre, with its Concept Cast Recording receiving airplay from Elaine Paige and Graham Norton on BBC Radio Two.
His debut album, subsequent singles, EPs and audiobook of poetry have received critical acclaim and local radio airplay across the UK on stations including Resonance FM, Uckfield Radio, Newcastle Student Radio, Colne Radio, Actual Radio, Riviera FM, Radio Saltire and Croydon Radio.
As part of London’s alternative cabaret circuit he has performed alongside such luminaries as David Hoyle, Dickie Beau and Jonny Woo, sung in Our Lady J’s gospel choir at Soho Theatre and supported RuPaul’s Drag Race star Adore Delano at London’s legendary Black Cap. Through Southbank Centre’s Voicelab, he has performed with Mercury Music Prize winners Elbow, jazz improvisation icon Bobby McFerrin, beat boxer Shlomo and UK jazz legend Ian Shaw in choirs led by Dom Stichbury, Laka D and Mary King. More recently, he joined a star studded celebration of David Bowie at Union Chapel which also featured Glen Matlock, David McAlmont, The Magic Numbers and Dan Gillespie Sells of The Feeling, and supported Tom Robinson at a fundraiser for the Russian LGBT Network.
His critically acclaimed debut solo album Quicksilver – The Masquerade Macabre is available now from all good digital outlets and as a collector’s edition CD from the Reeves Corner shop.
