David Crosby: Remember My Name
Marcus Eaton is a singer-songwriter, guitarist and composer known for his work as a solo artist and collaboration with two-time Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee David Crosby, who hails Marcus as "one of the best young singer-songwriters in America - maybe even the world. And he plays guitar like god on a good day."
In 2010, Crosby heard Marcus' music and asked him to play guitar on a few tracks on what became his first solo album in 20 years, "CROZ."
Throughout the three-year recording process, a kindred musical collaboration evolved between Marcus and Crosby over their shared interests in innovative guitar tunings and songwriting aesthetics. Marcus wound up co-writing a number of songs, singing harmony, and joining Crosby's legendary band on tour and television and radio appearances in support of the release.
When it came time to score the documentary David Crosby: Remember My Name premiering in competition at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival, director A.J. Eaton wanted to channel Crosby's original jazz influences and the '60s-era Laurel Canyon acoustic rock scene. And Marcus, A.J.'s brother, was the perfect choice.
Along with jazz pianist and Sundance Composers Lab fellow Bill Laurance, Marcus created a subtle score that takes a non traditional approach, leaning mostly on his solo acoustic guitar performance. A.J. says, “Marcus and Bill’s music delves deep into the subconscious of our main character.”
In addition to completing his first film score to David Crosby: Remember My Name, Marcus is finishing a solo E.P. that is due for release in 2019.
Marcus was raised in Idaho, and splits his time between Los Angeles and Italy.
