For the past thirty years, Marcia has sustained a diverse career as a professional musician, singer songwriter and backing singer, in the fields of live performance, studio recording, music theatre, music publishing and education. She has experienced firsthand the full breadth of live performance – as a band member, bandleader and as a solo artist. She is a commercial entertainer and was a member of the legendary Australian band, Goanna as a backing singer, keyboard player and songwriter. As a part of this triple Aria award- winning band she recorded and toured Australia for many years.
Marcia has four solo albums and she has enjoyed a successful solo career with her band, performing at Festivals and Concerts in Australia and overseas. Marcia has worked with some legendary International Artists including America’s Tim O’Brien and Ireland’s Mary Black, performing and recording her songs in Nashville and Ireland. Marcia joined Mary Black on her live DVD performance opening over five nights at her shows at the Olympia Theatre in Dublin and recording songs together.
There have been many performances on TV over the years, including most recently her performance on Season 5 of the Voice, 2016, where she made it through to the Super battles as a part of Delta Goodrem’s team. She has sung on countless radio and album recordings of many iconic Australian artist albums and has developed her skills and understanding of ‘pro tools’ recording and studio vocal recording.
Marcia released her EP, Nashville Sessions with her band at the 40th Port Fairy Folk Festival where she was named Maton, Artist of the year, 2016. She recently launched her stage show, Holy Wells to Waterholes, belonging through song with her band at the 2016 National Celtic Festival, which recounts her musical life and journey through song and includes readings from her book, projected images, and songs.

As I said before “One of the most charismatic, gentle, spiritual musicians Australia has ever produced.”
