Bass Player

With a music degree specialising in Bass Guitar, Marcel has been integral to several band over several years including a number of international tours.

Born into a musical family in Brazil, Marcel's interest in music was forged at an early age experimenting with different instruments until deciding to focus on the guitar at age 9. He joined a local musical society and at 13 when an opening for a bass player in their principal band came up, he jumped at the chance to play bass with the serious musicians. This ignited a passion in him for bass guitar, the instrument that would become the focus of his music degree.

After moving to London, Marcel played in numerous musical projects spanning a number of styles including funk, soul and rock, playing bass guitar and double bass and also singing.
