Join Couchsurfing to see Marcus’s full profile. It’s free!
I'm a native Austinite, so naturally music is what I do. I'm currently making the transition into being a full-time musician. I'm a part of three budding projects, all of which I'm very excited about. You can check them out below. I'm a nice guy with a good since of humor and I can get along with just about anyone. I'm respectful, courteous and very grateful.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
Part of making music full time is being on the road and sharing my songs while connecting with good people. One of my projects(The Old Days) splits time between Los Angeles and Austin. As a result, I'm traveling back and forth playing shows all along the way. Its definitely an adventure. I've had several couchsurfers stay at my place through my roommate and its always been a great experience. We've made long lasting friendships with several of our guests. The idea of traveling across America, playing music, meeting good people and making friends along the way, that sounds like the life to me.
I love writing. Whether it be songwriting or journaling, I get an incredible amount of energy through putting pen to paper.
I'm a pretty big sports fan. I follow the Texas Longhorns primarily, but I'm into pro stuff too. Its fun.
Movies and books are great obviously. Food is delicious :)
Music, Movies, and Books
Radiohead, Vampire Weekend, Mac Demarco, Broken Social Scene, Arcade Fire, Elliot Smith, Fleet Foxes, M83, New Order, Phoenix, The Helio Sequence
I'm into movies that take you out of your own movie. Because of that, pretty much any film is gonna capture my attention. Sci-fi, Romance, Drama, Classics, I like it all...
I'm currently reading The Televisionary Oracle, which is pretty wild. I usually grab books on start ups, spirituality, politics, or just a good old fashioned story
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I played ACL with my former band Bobby Jealousy in 2013!
Teach, Learn, Share
I studied Economics at UT, which sparked a sort of entrepreneurial spirit in me. Through this I've started a little business called umovemusic. You can check it out at umovemusic.com Its a platform that allows fans in a specific city to pre-purchase tickets to see any artist they want in their hometown. The artist then can respond to the fans' interest and book shows where they have support. Fans aren't charged unless the artist books the show. Part my trip will be viewed through an entrepreneurial lens. Basically, I love hearing and sharing ideas and dreams about what kind of world we want to make.
What I Can Share with Hosts
While I'm around, I can lend a hand with any sort of house or personal project. I can help and contribute to any sort of meals that we share. I also really enjoy listening to stories and learning from other's experiences.
