In 1985, at the tender age of twenty something, Marco joined cult indie band Felt, playing bass and guitar on five of the bands ten-album career.

When Felt split in 1990, he spent a number of years in music distribution. In 2002 he recorded a one off instrumental album as FLY, with ex Felt members Gary Ainge and Martin Duffy (Primal Scream).

Also in the band was Martin Davies, who introduced Marco to some home recordings by someone called Scott Matthews. Within a few minutes of hearing this incredible demo, Marco knew his life had changed forever.

This chance hearing led him to form San Remo in 2005. The following year Scott’s debut album ‘Passing Stranger’ was released to much critical acclaim and went on to achieve silver disc status.
