About Marcus Bonfanti

Both Bonfanti‟s albums are full of the highs and lows we can all relate to, referencing a range of influences from early blues like Muddy Waters & Mississippi John Hurt, classic songwriters Tony Joe White & Tom Waits, through guitar heroes Jimmy Page & Rory Gallagher to more modern artists like Big Sugar & Grady, ultimately creating a style of his own. 

His last album „What Good Am I To You‟ (Listed in Classic Rock Magazine's top 50 albums of 2010 & Single "Give Me Your Cash" top 40 songs of 2010) is the sound of North London blues. The 29-year-old was born and raised in a tiny flat to an English mother and an Italian father. Despite picking up the guitar for the first time at the age of 16 and being a self-taught guitarist he has already packed in plenty having worked as a sideman for artists such as PP Arnold, Joe Lewis Walker, The Selecter, Jimmy Carl Black, Hamish Stewart, Paddy Milner, Earl Thomas, and Findlay Brown. As well as touring opening for Chuck Berry, Robert Cray, Jack Bruce, Paul Jones, John Mayal, The Yardbirds, Walter Trout, Ian Siegal, Philip Sayce, Sonny Landreth and Beth Rowley. 

Bonfanti and his 3 piece band featuring Scott Wiber (Bass) and Alex Reeves (Drums) have been playing shows up and down the country to promote the release of "What Good Am I To You?" his follow up to the acclaimed 2008 debut "Hard Times". 

With appearances headlining The Bourbon Street Blues Stage at this years Glastonbury festival, a sold out show at Bush Hall for the inaugural London Blues Fest as well as playing Texas‟ prestigious South By South West festival last March, Bonfanti is fast building a reputation as one of the most exciting acts on the UK live circuit with a fierce show either with band or solo earning him 2 nominations at this year's British Blues Awards (Best Guitar & Best Male Vocals for the second year running).
