Dreamers are seldom doers, and realists are seldom visionaries.
Singer-songwriter-musician-producer Marc Ribler, however, embodies all of those traits. His unique ability to balance emotion and logic enables him to infuse his music with raw passion laced with a clear-headed understanding of the complexities of life.
The creative force behind the acclaimed Marc Ribler and Friends series of themed showcases at McLoone's Supper Club in Asbury Park views the universe as a source of constant inspiration. Marc spends about 18 hours each day on a range of pursuits that may include writing songs, producing other artists' tracks and his own, gigging almost every night in the New Jersey/New York area, directing and performing in the Supper Club shows, writing movie soundtracks and, in his "spare" time, dreaming up his next big projects.
Following super-storm Sandy in Oct. 2012, Marc wasted no time producing a number of benefit concerts to help restore the shore. He also wrote "Garden State" and "Our Spirit Is Strong" that chronicle the storm's devastating effects while focusing on the strength of Jersey's people to rebound. All of the profitss from the sale of these songs on www.marcribler.com goes to the Sandy New Jersey Relief Fund.
Marc's philanthropic spirit is equaled only by his relentless work ethic, superior musicianship and a refusal to settle for "good enough." Below is a snapshot of a career in perpetual motion.
