Where have all the guitar heroes gone? You know the ones: signature sound, mind-blowing style, genius leads, and riffs that were practically songs unto themselves. Virtuoso musician and composer Marc Seal is the new guitar hero, effortlessly closing the chasm between the old guard and new school. Practically born with a guitar in his hands, the Southern California-based axe-slinger has been accurately described as a �melodic technician.� He is Internationally renowned for his high level of musical accomplishments, fluid style and progressive rock sensibilities. Marc�s latest CD (self-titled) is the perfect example of how his instrument is a direct extension of his soul and is amplified through his heart.
Like his fast fretwork, Marc Seal himself is seemingly everywhere at once. The GIT graduate is a singular talent, but there are thousands of ambitious guitarists who admire his work and study his technique. A mere fifty of them are lucky enough to take private instruction from him when he�s not on tour, but Marc gives others the next best thing as the host of �The Ultimate Guitar Show!� The Ultimate Guitar Show was created by Marc and airs 3 times a week throughout Southern California as well as over the internet via Taylor Guitars website and features celebrity musicians like Alter Bridge, Jason Mraz and Toby Lightman. The show has been viewed by several hundred thousand people worldwide in over 40 countries and is continuing to expand markets!

Marc�s adaptability as a musician and sharp proficiency as a producer make him an outstanding composer for film and TV with film credits that include Ski School 2 and Panama Red. His fluid instrumentals even graced the award winning wildlife film Wild Dolphins & Whales of Southern California that took 5 awards at the International Wildlife Film Festival and included the Merit award for "Best Use of Music."

While at Crossroads in Texas, Marc filmed an interview for a feature documentary tribute to The Fender Stratocaster to be aired on a major national network and available on DVD.
