Marcus Rixon is a Graduate of Asbury University, with a degree in Media Communications, emphasis in Audio Production.
Marcus’ experiences include working with the Olympic Broadcasting Services, where he travelled to Sochi, Russia to work as an assistant audio engineer in the 2014 Winter Olympic Games. Marcus had the privilege of working alongside world-renowned audio engineer, Howard Baggley, at the figure skating and short track speed skating arenas. His experience expands further than the Olympics though, as he has worked in world-renown recording studio, Blackbird Studios, under John & Martina McBride.
Upon graduation in 2014, Marcus moved to Nashville and began working as a tour manager for the band, Unspoken. In 2015, Marcus continued as Unspoken’s tour manager but also started working with a second band, Jonathan Jackson and Enation. Still furthering his career, in 2016, Marcus started touring with two additional music artists, Selah and Mark Schultz.
To be the best tour manager he could be, Marcus decided he wanted to further his knowledge of the touring gear and equipment that he encountered on the road so in addition to the demanding touring schedule with four different artists, he started working for OCD Labs/Square V as a technician. In this new technician role, Marcus built and designed custom touring gear and equipment for many A-list artists in the music industry.
In case 2016 wasn’t busy enough, in August, Marcus signed on as an artist manager with Lucid Artist Management, a subsidiary of Mike Atkins Entertainment. Marcus accepted this dream position of his and has been there ever since.
