A native of Brazil, Marco was always surrounded by music. Both his parents played the piano, which was his first instrument, however, he still likes to play keyboards and piano, mainly to capture new ideas for the band.
At the age of 15, Marco’s interest turned towards the drums and currently his main instrument. He studied drums while he was in Brazil with Mauricio Leite, a well-known and respected drummer, and in the United States with Chuck Brown (Terry Bozzio, Will Kennedy, Jeff Campitelli, David Garibaldi).
Marco played with local Brazilian bands Hades warden, Evora, and Móbil Gigante.
He also played in a Symphony-X tribute band, and he recorded with the band Evora the song “Peruvian Skies” from Dream Theater for a Brazilian Tribute CD entitled “Lake of Fire” which can be heard here on Marco's website - http://www.marcobicca.com/audio-video/
Currently, Marco resides in the Bay Area and plays with the bands' Wreck of Time(former The Element), Sigma Project, Shaylon, and Coda Turkish Rock and he also joined forces with the American Eden’s Curse.
Marco is always available for session work and gigs, you can check his calendar and email him if you need anything!
