Biography

1) Smooth jazz/jazz fusion guitarist Marc Antoine was born in Paris, France, and currently resides in Madrid, Spain. His guitar play style is based on Roma music.

2) French R&B adult contemporary singer Marc Antoine was born in Montréal, Québec, Canada, and is of Haitian descent.


[1] Guitarist, composer and producer, Marc Antoine, was born in Paris (France) on the 28th of May 1963. His parents bought him his first guitar when he was 11 years old which quickly became his third arm. Marc has had a guitar in his hands ever since.

At age 13, his father saw such rapid progress that he sent him to the conservatory where he would study classical music. By then his mentors were Andres Segovia and John Williams.

At 17 he’d already won many prizes and started showing an interest in a variety of music genres including jazz, rock, Afro, pop, and more. At the same time he was playing in local bands in Britany (France).

Tragedy struck in the summer of 1981 when his debut career got cut short by a devastating accident to his left hand. The surgeon told him that his chances of playing guitar again were very slim and next to nothing. However, through the adversity, his love and passion for music helped him overcome this tragedy and in 1984 he was back on the scene in Paris, performing in clubs and recording for artists like Philippe Petit, Charlelie Couture, Jill Kaplan, France Gall, and Ray Lema.

    楼下说得对,有两个marc antoine。一个法国的(好像应该是加拿大魁北克的),唱rnb;一个美国的,jazz guitar。 系统应该列为两个不同的艺术家哦。一个名字找到两个艺术家,真值!

    Léger problème de confusion - il existe deux Marc Antoine un chanteur québequois, black, et un musicien de jazz, blanc. Vous avez d'ailleurs mis des photos de ces deux hommes ce qui est assez amusant et paradoxal :) Le musicien de jazz est le compositeur de Sarava et Cruisin voire d'autres morceaux. Faites la vérification avant de mettre en ligne de minuscules erreurs de ce genre pour ceux qui aimeraient éventuellement acheter les albums..
