Marcus Rezak carves out a distinguished style in the world of guitar with several cutting-edge groups such as Shred is Dead, Digital Tape Machine, Stratosphere All-Stars, Katharsis, Supernatural Beings in addition to frequent engagements as an artist-at-large. Known as a master of jazz improvisation and a seasoned artist of the sit-in, Rezak is a frequent call among bands and musicians. Rezak’s 2018 debut as a bandleader saw him collaborating alongside Kris Myers and Joel Cummins of Umphrey’s McGee, Arthur Barrow of Frank Zappa’s band, and legendary saxophonist Bill Evans. Since then he has toured across the US with eclectic lineups featuring the likes of Ike Willis, Kris Myers, Jay Lane, Scott Page, and more; led his band through two tours on the US Virgin Islands; spearheaded official Umphrey’s McGee afterparties, and continued to hone his chops in his home studio and licensing endeavors. ‘Truth in Sound’ is Rezak’s most recent work featuring members of Trey Anastasio Band, esteemed percussionist Kaylan Pathak, and more. His adaptability and exceptional skill have garnered Rezak much respect in the music world and have leveraged his ability to take his craft to integral heights.

“Marcus kills it, shreds it, and has it for breakfast with a side of nails.”
— ARTHUR BARROW (FRANK ZAPPA’S BAND)
“Marcus Rezak is one of the most compelling and gifted guitarist / composers to come along in a long time. He is one of the new generation of musicians who I feel will be one of the pioneers in innovative music. He has the ability to connect the dots and take it to the next level. His playing reminds me of a cross between John McLaughlin, Jimi Hendrix and Jake Cinninger!! Marcus Rezak is here to stay.”
— BILL EVANS (SAXOPHONIST w/ MILES DAVIS)
“Recording with Marcus for his new album Truth in Sound, felt like we had been playing together for years; cool songs with deep grooves, just the way I like it.”
— RUSS LAWTON, DRUMS (TREY ANASTASIO BAND)
“I love the energy and focus in these cuts. It was a pleasure to play on, five-star cast for sure! Marcus is tearing it up! Solid!”
— RAY PACZKOWSKI, KEYBOARDS (TREY ANASTASIO BAND)
“It’s always good to break new ground in the music world—whether it’s hearing something new and different, or whether it’s a chance encounter with players you’ve heard about but never met, or, as in this case, getting invited by a seriously talented young musician to help him realize the dream of putting some top-notch original music out for the world to hear. Add to that the pleasure of getting to record those songs with some of my favorite musicians—my friends and TAB band mates Russ and Ray—under the watchful eye of Ben Collette at Burlington’s Tank Studio, and it just doesn’t get any better. I wish Marcus all the success he deserves!”
— TONY MARKELLIS (TREY ANASTASIO BAND)
“I’ve had the pleasure of working on many different projects with Marcus. This one truly shows his highest powers as a versatile, world class musician.”
— KRIS MYERS (UMPHREY’S MCGEE)
“Working with Marcus Rezak in the studio was a breeze. He and producer Joe Hettinga came in prepared with well crafted songs—and with such a killer backing band consisting of Russ, Tony and Ray of TAB, we were set up for success from the start. Those guys know how to lay down a solid foundation of groove, Marcus settled right into the pocket and they hit the ground running. I knew from the first downbeat that we were in for a great session. We captured colorful sounds of inspired performances, with great hangs along the way. Days in the studio don’t get much better than that!”
— BEN COLLETTE (PHISH MIXING ENGINEER, TANK AUDIO)
“These compositions were pretty challenging!…it’s a pretty progressive album, and each song is really different. Each track kind of has its own vibe to it. It was just a lot of fun to get in there and have the freedom to create. That’s something I loved about working with Marcus.”
— JOEL CUMMINS (UMPHREY’S MCGEE)
