Sun God Battle of the Bands
Second year in a row being selected by the student body to compete in UCSD's annual Battle of the Bands. The winner gets to perform at the Sun God Festival. In 2014, Marker placed second. In 2015, he won.
"Marker keeps things fairly simple, with little more than a guitar and light percussion. This barebones approach strips away unnecessary or otherwise distracting sonic barriers, helping him reach his goal of striking a chord with the listener. With a focus on engaging melodies and personal lyrics, Marker exhibits the potential, as he puts it, to allow 'music to make [an] important impact on people’s lives.'" — UCSD Guardian
