After the band split in 1991 Marc went solo and began developing his song
writing and guitar playing. In 1993 Marc took the club circuit, playing as a self-contained act with the aid of backing tracks and his acoustic guitar.

forces once more with Andy Seddon and Rob Swann, two band mates from his FRONTIER days, to create a new version of GABRIEL.
