Synopsis

Fashioned as a ’60’s-turning-into-’70’s ‘concept album’, Marco’s Secret Songbook is a group of songs and guitar pieces built along a storyline. “Marco” functions as a foil for the author’s own stylistic indulgences. The lyrical themes will not surprise anyone who knows something about Emmett’s own personal 40 years in the music business. The story takes Marco from his teenaged roots in a conservative musical Italian family, to France, where he falls in and out of love: to England, where he nearly buries himself as a jobbing musician, bottoms out, then bounces back through a Caribbean cruise ship gig, eventually coming full circle, back to his love, Genevieve, and his family – accompanied by the secret songbook that has chronicled his odyssey.
