Hello Everyone,

Marcus Aurelius Skapars here. I've worked in many different settings. I work best with high energy and creative artisans. Whether it be others trying to create something together as a group or playing for someone who has a vision and purpose for their craft and solo aspirations. Experience has been with many genres. I believe if you see yourself as this kind of individual described above than I would have no problems being able to create the next great record or performance.

Really it can go in so many directions but I'm influenced by all musicians with energy and soul. I mean real undeniable passion. Groups and individuals who push the envelope technically and emotionally to its core. Love and hate, all bottled into great records and performances.
