Over the last fifteen years, writer and performer Marcus Reeves has carved his own niche in London’s performance scene, with incarnations as an actor, drag queen, singer songwriter and performance poet. His show 'Postcards from God - The Sister Wendy Musical' has been presented at Jermyn Street Theatre in London's West End and at Hackney Empire Studio Theatre, with its Concept Cast Recording receiving airplay from Elaine Paige and Graham Norton on BBC Radio Two.

More recently, he joined a star studded celebration of David Bowie at Union Chapel which also featured Glen Matlock, David McAlmont, The Magic Numbers and Dan Gillespie Sells of The Feeling.
His critically acclaimed debut solo album 'Quicksilver - The Masquerade Macabre' is available now from all good digital outlets and as a collector’s edition CD from the Reeves Corner shop.
