Mixing heartwarming earth tones and commercial hooks, Marcos Lopez-Iglesias is bringing his blend of pop songwriting to the world. Born in Oxford, England (his mother is English, his father Spanish) his music has an essence of English folk purity touched with strong Spanish guitar sounds.
When his family moved to Sheffield his mother, Eve, already aware of the family musical talent, bought Marcos Lopez-Iglesias a classical guitar and his brother, Simon, a drum set.. Later, the brothers decided to swap instruments and Marcos developed a strong sense of groove and musicianship which gave him some outstanding success in UK drum competitions and led to him being selected to drum for a nine piece soul band called Yahboo.
Marcos Lopez-Iglesias' talent was noticed by pop idol Limahl from Kajagoogoo (Too Shy Shy) and he was invited to play at stadiums throughout Europe. He also took part in the video soundtrack for the movie The Never Ending Story.
Duran Duran then invited Marcos Lopez-Iglesias to play with them on their European tour. Marcos decided to stay on in Europe and moved to Modena in Italy to work with Innervision Recording Studios as session drummer and assistant producer.
He wrote songs for the Italian pop band The Gift and also composed an anthem for the Uventus Football Club In the mid nineties Marcos moved to the USA where he worked with the American Music Organization The Continental Singers and had the opportunity to study composition with renowned classical composer Miguel Del Aguila. This pushed him to new limits and he decided to communicate his ideas as a contemporary singer/songwriter.
