Marco With Love / Bio

Born as a solo project in mid 2013, ‘Marco With Love’ has quickly matured into a band whose lineup consists of New York City’s top musical talent, embodying the diversity, DIY work ethic, and true essence of rock’n roll. The band’s vibrant sound gives a nod to influences such as Revolver-era Beatles, Tom Petty, The Kinks, and the Traveling Wilburys while their live show embodies the energy and raw attitude of The Ramones, The New York Dolls, and The Strokes. “Marco Argiro’s amazing charisma blasts from the stage, capturing anyone in its path.” (BBC Guernsey). Their album ‘Love’ “gives plenty of nods to the melancholy-­tinged, folk influenced rock of the late 60′s and 70′s, while managing to distance itself enough to still feel relevant to the modern music scene.” (Velvet Rope Magazine) 

Lead singer/guitarist Marco Argiro has made a name for himself by fronting trans-atlantic acts such as Le Mood and The Killing Floor. “Marco is a unique and phenomenal star on stage and even more mystical when his band Love rocks out with him.” (Sonic Eclectic). He caught the ear of Marky Ramone in 2010 and filled in for Michael Graves (The Misfits) during Marky Ramone’s Blitzkrieg European tour. For Argiro, a lifelong Ramones fan, it was a dream come true, and the experience inspired him towrite a song that became the closing track on the album. The backbone of the band was complete when Marco pulled in bandmate Peter Landi (The Killing Floor and The Glazzies) for drum duties, as well as longtime friend and collaborator Subodh Samudre (Golden Bones, Peru, Planar), and Blaine O’Brien (Brothers NYC).

In the timespan of just eight months, the band has gained fans and captivated audiences across NYC’s music scene, Los Angeles, Boston, Toronto, and London. The single Leave It Behind (Brooklynville) was dubbed “Brooklyn’s own confessional heartland rock anthem” by The Deli NYC while the single Love "is truly remarkable in its sound, offering something we really aren't getting much of anymore" (Limerence Magazine).  
“I still find it shocking that these guys have been playing... for less than a year as they have such appeal, evoking that great feeling of hearing something new and refreshing...and their performance varies from Elvis on the Ed Sullivan Show to punk-esque raging with kicks off the drum kit... Marco with Love is destined for great things to come.” (Nerese Ricther- Mediazoic Toronto). These guys not only sing about their “live and die for rock and roll” attitude but truly embody it.
