More or Less Album Cover Final v2 for TC.jpg


Bird Service is a new musical adventure, a space for new music, developing a new band and collaborating with other musicians. A first album, ...More or Less,  was released in 2021 and a new album in in the works.

... More or Less

Bird Service's first album, '... more or less', was released on 6th December 2021 (on all major platforms). Containing 10 original songs, the album combines Marcus' eclectic musical roots with the Brazilian rhythms he loves.  Five of the songs had a first outing with Rabo de Foguete, before the band split up in 2018. You can listen to the album on Spotify and Bandcamp (player below).

Marcus says, "It has taken me 36 years to make this album, since I first seriously picked up a guitar and banged out Stranglers tunes in a bothy in the Outer Hebrides, in 1985 (and was told I looked like a musician!). There have been lots of musical manifestations and collaborators since then, not least 10 amazing years with Rabo de Foguete, but I only finished a song for the first time in 2017, and have been writing solidly since then. It was something about my first visit to the Bromyard Folk Festival, in 2017, that galvanised my songwriting. A connection to the roots of music that opened a door to my songwriting."
