Marc Ballesteros is a singer, composer, musician, performer, and recording artist. Although most of his songs are pop/adult contemporary, Marc’s love of music is not limited to that genre alone. He enjoys listening and playing a wide range of musical style including classical, rock, country, R&B, jazz, etc. and you’ll hear these styles in his own compositions. Marc is self taught in guitar and piano and does not read music.
“It was in the Spring of 2005 when we had our first boat ride in the waters of Charlotte Harbor in the Southwest coast of Florida. I performed in many local and tourist spots in Florida and met several people from various parts of North America, many of whom became good friends of ours over the years. Greg and Judy were a couple who lived close to the area and whom we met while performing at a local café and quickly became good friends of ours. They invited my wife and I one day, along with other friends, John and Pam, to cruise the waters of Charlotte Harbor on their boat. It was perfect setting and we had a wonderful time and enjoyed the calm and relaxing moment and each other’s company. That was the inspiration for the carrier song, “Charlotte Harbor” and the other track, “Sunset Cruise”. Although these songs and others on this CD were written almost ten years earlier and with some songs while I was still in high school, it gives me a great thrill to finally be able to record and share them with you now!
Special thanks to my producer, Brian Gagnon, for helping me breathe life to my songs with his musical and vocal arrangements, to Mom and Dad who brought and introduced us to Port Charlotte, and to our BFF (Beautiful Florida Friends) for your continued support, camaraderie and friendship over the years.”
With a couple of compilation albums and a single, Marc has four full albums to his credit and is now releasing his fifth, “Charlotte Harbor”, inspired by him and his wife’s frequent visits to Port Charlotte and Punta Gorda, FL.
He performs at various venues in the Greater Toronto Area in Ontario, at various private functions such as weddings, seminars, birthday parties and socials.
