This music is the accumulation of many years’ experience in life and in the music business. So, the only thing new about this endeavor is the direction of the Music. This project is designed to bring more of an awareness to the hurts people experience and to lead Those hurt people in a direction that would bring forth a healing. The songs are not religious but they do speak about God, and His need to heal and deliver His people. It is personal, as the artist himself has been down a road of pain and heartache that brought him to the point of a need for deliverance. Deliverance from a world that has no need for the homeless, Helpless, or the castaway. Deliverance from a world that has become so selfish it cannot recognize The need any more for a Savior. This is only a tool that will be used to further a ministry to help those in the darkness walk into His marvelous light and live the life they were created to live. One filled with Righteousness, Peace And Joy.

When you think of alternative-outlaw-country-rock and Americana music you probably think of USA, maybe Canada. So, Marc Miner is the European outpost. While Nashville is considered the “city of music” in the USA, Marc settled down in the European version of it: Vienna, Austria! As if that weren’t enough Marc is also an international breed: His father from USA met Marc’s mother from Germany in Poland. That’s also where Marc was born, before the family had to leave the country. They moved to Vienna, where Marc grew up and where he started his first bands ranging from rock n roll, rock to even punk and grunge – which at that time was the “teenage sound of revolution”. By the age of 16 the rebelling Marc Miner decided to leave home. He traveled through Europe, got a job on board of a container ship and arrived in the USA in 2000. Impressed by the life-style of the South, the prairie, the Appalachian and Rocky Mountains and the melodies he heard there he decided to stay. Unfortunately, life ain’t a free-ride so beside his music jobs he also started to gamble, which finally got him to jail. Marc was accused of illegal gambling, forging and other “trivial offenses” as he calls it. With some help from his father’s influential friends the US authorities finally amnesty Marc, but he had to leave this wonderful country.
