Marc Charron: Singer Songwriter & Multi-Instrumentalist
Marc Charron is a Canadian singer, songwriter and guitarist known for songs like “Time On My Hands”, “Concert In My Head“ and “What Are You Waiting For?“.
His shows are full of catchy original tunes and his unique spin on classic rock songs. As a result, fans often say they like his version better than the original.
Born in Constance Bay Ontario along the Ottawa River, Marc started playing drums at the young age of seven. When he was thirteen, his father passed away after a four-year battle with cancer. Jack Charron was a singer and guitar player who could play every song in the book.
Because of this, Marc started playing guitar soon after his tragic loss.
Marc sings in both languages of his Canadian homeland – English and French.
His unique one-man band style was born of necessity in 1998 in Fernie, BC. Knowing he needed more “oomph” for a loud St. Patrick’s Day gig, he sat down with a drum kit in front of him, while he sang and played guitar.
Since 2004 Marc has toured Canada eight times as a solo artist and Australia once with rock band Seismic. He has recorded three studio albums and one live album. In August 2018 he played his first fully solar powered concert, with more solar projects in the works.
Marc Charron is an overnight success story 25 years in the making. He’s logged over 10,000 hours honing his musical craft, while fully self-funding his career.
