Marc Durkee releases acoustic video jam of “A Way To Escape”

Releasing his new album Remain In Stasis this past January along with its lead single and music video “A Way To Escape”. Yarmouth, Nova Scotia’s solo atmospheric prog artist Marc Durkee has posted an acoustic rendition of the song where he was accompanied in the studio by Spencer Muise on guitar/vocals, Jessi Nicole on keys/vocals and Cameron Lawrence on percussion.

Durkee’s new album, solo in the true sense of the word, is entitled Remain In Stasis and is loaded with deep meaning to this courageous and talented artist, as he explains.

“The first meaning is personal. I’ve been stuck in a state of depersonalization for almost five years now. For me, it’s been a chronic symptom of dealing with years of depression and stress, and it’s unrelenting. When it’s at its worst, it removes mostly all motivation and enjoyment from my life. While that is unfortunate, it does serve as a major source of inspiration for song-writing…The second meaning is more political and universal. I feel that humanity is at a unique point in our history, with technology and social media allowing us to communicate and express ourselves in ways that were previously unimaginable. And yet, nobody really DOES communicate. It seems as though it’s mostly used as a platform to bicker over political ideals and agendas and create discourse, or for anyone to use as their own personal performance venue. Everyone wants to be seen and heard, even those who really don’t deserve to be.”

Marc Durkee is one artist who really does deserve to be heard, and now that Remain In Stasis has been released, all the world will hear him.
