Credit: Crescendo Trust of Aotearoa

We all know Marcus Powell from Blindspott/Blacklistt and, more recently, City Of Souls. But when he’s not on stage he runs the Crescendo Trust of Aotearoa. A trust that works with young people (12–24) in music, film and photography.

Before establishing the Trust Marcus was a mentor for the New Zealand Music Commission, giving lectures about bad ass bands and sharing Blindspott touring stories you probably shouldn’t tell your mum. But constantly relaying your greatest hits and successes gets more than a little boring, so one day he brought his guitar, laptop and mic to one of his mentoring sessions.
