Marco Wriedt started playing guitar and took first lessons at the age of 10. After playing in school bands as a teenager, he became a professional musician at only 19 years of age when going on tour with Jeff Scott Soto (Ex-Journey, Yngwie Malmsteen) and the Los Angeles based, two-time surf world-champion Pop singer Daize Shayne. In 2007, he reached the next step in joining the legendary Rock band AXXIS.

Marco played all over Europe with AXXIS, including shows at high-profile Rock festivals such as Wacken, Sweden Rock, Masters of Rock, Rock Of Ages or Loreley . Up to now, he has recorded three Albums with AXXIS - Doom Of Destiny, Utopia and Kingdom Of The Night Pt.2. Utopia & KOTN2 reached the German charts at positions 40 & 28.
Marco Wriedt was featured in major guitar magazines (Guitar and Gitarre & Bass) and was invited to play at the "Ronnie James Dio Tribute Show" in summer 2010, where he played alongside major artists such as Axel Rudi Pell, Doro and Doggie White, among others.
In late 2010, he was asked to join another classic group: PINK CREAM 69 had heard about Marco's skills and invited him to join their Germany tour in February 2011.

Ever since his childhood he has liked diverse musical styles and artists. Some of his influences are Genesis, Electric Light Orchestra, Brian Eno, Bowie, Vaughan Williams, Franz Liszt, Yes, Chopin, Led Zeppelin, Strawinski and Film Scores. His goal as a guitar player is to combine a melodic soulfoul playing style with a diverse technique.
