If you think you don’t know Marc Almond it’s likely you’re
mistaken given his selection of chart topping hits and a musical back catalogue
which literally stretches into decades of British music history.
Marc first hit the public consciousness as part of Soft Cell
with fellow musician David Ball who Marc met while studying at Leeds
Polytechnic College. The duo experienced wide-spread success over the course of
their career with International hits like “Tainted Love” bringing them notoriety
the world over. As part of Soft Cell, Marc recorded four albums which bore even
more success for the pair with singles like “Say Hello, Wave Goodbye”, “Torch”
and “What!” which all topped the UK charts.
Soft Cell parted ways to pursue their solo projects but this
was just the beginning of a lifetime of creativity and success for Marc. See Marc below as part of Soft Cell performing the timeless classic, Tainted Love.
It’s impossible to touch on all Marc’s projects to date, such
is the vast catalogue of music he has produced in his lifetime. Marc’s career
has shifted focus onto re-working the material of others as well as still
performing songs from his immense bank of original material all presented in a
performance spectacle unlike any other for Marc’s legions of fans both old and
Live performance is where the charismatic singer truly excels
as he brings the audience to the centre of his flamboyant world to share his
creative visions through song. Marc is a true creative visionary and performer
bringing a sensationally unique experience to every show he is a part of.
