Growing up in Hamburg, Germany with influences such as James Brown, Lionel Richie, Phil Collins, Eric Clapton and Jackson Browne to name a few, Marcel Gano Stepel or better known as Marc Shadow creates an emotional and classic cocktail of sound.

He is producing himself these days and in his song writing he deals with pain and affliction resulting of love, but more so about hope and passion – just the daily products of everyday life. On his debut album "ganoble" you can listen to this unique and commercial symbiosis of R’n’B and Pop rhythm. Now, he is working on his upcoming album, which is more in modern Country and Soul music.

Marc, born a Gemini, has been making music for more than 20 years. Being a studio musician with his main instrument the E-Bass inspired by Marcus Miller and Mark King, he has worked with some famous german and international musicians.
