Blind Boy Paxton may be one of the greatest multi-instrumentalists that you have not heard of. Yet. And time is getting short\, fast. \n   Jerron performed to a sold out audience at the Lead Belly Tribute at Carnegie Hall on February 4\, 2016 along with Buddy Guy\, Eric Burdon\, Edgar Winter\, Kenny Wayne Shepherd\, and other stars. It is no exaggeration to say that Paxton made a huge impression. In the two years since his incredible performance at that star-studded show in one of the world’s great concert houses\, Paxton’s own star has been rising fast. He opened for Buddy Guy at B.B. Kings in NYC; for Robert Cray at the Reading PA Blues Festival\, and performed at numerous other festivals including: Woodford Folk Festival & Byron Bay Blues Festival in Australia; Calgary Folk Festival in Canada; Jewel City Jam in Huntington WV; Freihofers Jazz Festival in Saratoga Springs FL; Clearwater Festival in Croton-on-The Hudson NY; Fayetteville Roots Festival in Fayetteville AR: Cambridge Folk Festival in the UK.\, Harvest Time Rhythm & Blues Festival in Ireland; and headlined the 2017 Brooklyn Folk Festival. \n Jerron Paxton is a two-time participant in the Keeping The Blues Alive Cruise and is the new Artistic Director of the Port Townsend Acoustic Blues Festival & Workshop at Centrum in Port Townsend\, WA. \n   Paxton was featured on CNN’s Great Big Story and appeared in the multi award winning music documentary AMERICAN EPIC produced by Robert Redford\, Jack White & T-Bone Burnett. In October and November 2018 Jerron ‘Blind Boy’ Paxton will be touring the U.S. with the musicians from this groundbreaking AMERICAN EPIC SESSIONS music documentary. \n   This young musician sings and plays banjo\, guitar\, piano\, fiddle\, harmonica\, Cajun accordion\, and the bones (percussion). Paxton has an eerie ability to transform traditional jazz\, blues\, folk\, and country into the here and now\, and make it real. In addition\, he mesmerizes audiences with his humor and storytelling. He’s a world-class talent and a uniquely colorful character that has been on the cover of Living Blues Magazine and the Village Voice\, and has been interviewed on FOX News. Paxton’s sound is influenced by the likes of Fats Waller and “Blind” Lemon Jefferson.

His chops are wide-ranging from delicate finger picking to raw\, rambunctious strumming. Marc’s guitar serves as more than one instrument as he uses it to create percussive beats and atmospheric sounds. His dynamic voice can go from smooth & soaring to smoky scatting. Marc’s harmonica playing is equally impressive\, and he sometimes uses it to accompany his blues influenced original songs. His soulful live performances showcase his original music\, influenced by folk\, funk and blues\, with a few choice cover songs woven in. As one reviewer wrote: “If you haven’t seen Marc Von Em perform live you’re only cheating yourself.” \nBIO \nMarc Von Em is a soulfully energized singer/songwriter whose sound flows easily between folk\, blues & funk. Driven by his fluid acoustic guitar playing\, rich powerful voice\, and comfortable stage presence\, Marc’s live shows never fail to excite audiences. Since 1999\, Marc has self produced and released 4 recordings\, the most recent entitled “CRASH BOOM POW” \nREVIEWS \n“I asked Marc to open up a 10\,000 seat gig for me\, just him and his guitar\, he killed it!” – Rob Thomas \n“Trying to categorize Marc Von em is a fruitless proposition. The NY born Singer Songwriter incorporates a myriad of sonic flavors into his aresenal. Von Em is a musical Craftsman\, his recordings audio scrapbooks of the simplicities\, as well as the grand crises\, that confront us all.”\n– Mark Uricheck (Musically Speaking\, Connections Magazine) \n“I don’t have time to write many reviews\, but just gotta say that this music leaps out at me on Whole Wheat Radio\, amongst thousands of indie artist that we play. It’s fun\, it makes me bounce in my seat. Just a great groove.
