Guitarist, composer and producer, Marc Antoine was born in Paris (France). His parents bought him his first guitar when he was 11 years old. 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. In 1988 he moved to London (England) where in joined Basia's band and worked with The Reggae Philharmonic Orchestra (Soul to Soul), Pato Benton and General Public. He was also part of the London Acid Jazz scene.

His world tour travelling lead him to spend time in Tokyo where he became an acclaimed session player. As a true citizen of the world, Marc kept moving, this time to Los Angeles(USA) at the beginning of the 90's. He stayed there for 13 years playing for music royalty such as Sting, Celine Dion, Rod Stewart, Cher, Selena, Queen Latifah, George Benson, and others. In 1995, R&R elected him Best New Artist of The Year, which was followed by a Gavin Award in 1998. He has also received numerous nominations for jazz awards in the US and Canada, also won a dance latin instrumental Grammy. Marc was honoured when George Benson mentioned him as one of his favorite guitarists.
