In 2014 he played the International Stage at The Great British R&B festival (International Stage) and 2015 The Great British Rock and Blues Festival.

Since relocating to the UK Marcus has written, produced and recorded six albums on the Redline Music Label, including ‘One More Time’ in 1999 from which the title song is featured on ‘Blueprint 99 –The Best of The British Blues’ album. The second album -’Walkin’ Shoes’- was released in August 2002. The track ‘Take It To Heart’ is featured on Blues In Britain 2002 - ‘The Best of British Blues’ album. The third album ‘Blue Radio’ was released in early 2005, with the song ‘Mama Said’ featured on ‘The Best of British Blues” 2005. 'Hurricane' was released in March 2007 and received great reviews in several rock publications and traditional blues magazines including ‘Rock Tribune‘ in Belgium and ‘Bluesnews‘ in Germany.

'Let The Sunshine In' arrived in 2011, recorded in the UK and released in the UK, Netherlands and Belgium through Cadiz Distribution (UK). Get Ready To Rock! had this to say about the release:

“.…a work of real maturity and great playing, and is palpable proof that rock blues can have soul” and singled out - “ 'Heartbreak Kid' which sounds like the hit that Tom Petty never had.”

In 2014 Marcus completed recording his 6th CD 'Stand or Fall' distributed through Inakustic of Germany. Another collection of original blues based rock songs, the album was nominated for ‘Best Recorded Session 2014’ by the European Blues Awards.
