In 2014 Swersky launched Monocentric Music, a full service Entertainment + Production Company. Monocentric — defined as having one singular center, is an artist centered company with major focus on artistry & development, a specialty of Swersky’s. With the changing landscape of the music business, where artists are able to hold onto less and less control of their careers, Swersky felt it necessary to offer a model which serves the needs of the artist as a whole. Working with Swersky and the team at Monocentric means more than music. The business approach places high value on the human spirit of each artist developed. What you get most with Swersky is time.
“Taking time (months or sometimes years) to develop an artist is really a lost art. I strive to bring back the old-school approach to artist development. Most young artists want instant gratification. What they don’t always realize is that sometimes their impatience will ultimately be their downfall in this industry. Securing a lasting career takes time, commitment, hard work, and focus”-Marc Swersky
”Marc Swersky and I have been collaborators and great friends for decades, having co-written songs for a wide range successful artists from Joe Cocker, for whom I produced two albums, to Hilary Duff, for whom we co-wrote and co-produced numerous songs for albums that went on to be great successes. Marc’s inspired songwriting and production talent is always at the highest level as is his attention to the details of what makes a product great. Together we wrote “Trust in Me,” for Joe Cocker, which not only appeared on Joe’s “Unchain My Heart,” album but also appeared as a duet with Sass Jordan on the “Bodyguard,” soundtrack album, an album that went on to win a Grammy and rank as the 14th best-selling album in the Pop Era. I continue to be inspired by Marc’s passion for the projects he takes on and am grateful for our long-time creative partnership and friendship.Charlie Midnight(James Brown, Joe Cocker, Joni Mitchell)
”As a mixing engineer for the past 45 years I have a lot of opportunities to compare the work of different producers. There are a few who come in with a concise production, a specific goal in mind for what the song is trying to say and the well recorded tracks that help get us to that end result. Marc is definitely in that club. I would highly recommend his work to anyone.Mark NeedhamCEO MAN Entertainment
”I had the pleasure of getting to know Marc and getting to work with him on a project that he was producing (Gedeon Luke and The People). I was aware of Marc as a producer and songwriter but we had not worked together up until then . Marc is a great guy and a great producer!!! and the record we worked on together was a true joy to be involved in. Marc is also a great bass player but was very open with me in regards to the bass parts .Allowing me to interpret the songs without micro managing every note. Well, all I can say is that this record is one that I will never forget. Raw soul music ,great vocals, great vibe, great fun and hopefully the first of many we work on together !!!!!Jack DaleyLenny Kravitz, Beyonce, Little Steven and the Disciples of Soul

”I've worked with Marc on a numerous number of records throughout the years and can assure you that he possesses qualities that very few musicians and artists do: Marc has the God-given gift of purely following one's artistic intuition and taking a song exactly where it needs to go. He is a master of dissecting the best information out of a raw idea and taking it to a finalized product. Marc is particularly exceptional with young or less experienced artists bringing out the best in them. Marc's vast experience shows in the pleasant and inspirational way in which he can lead a team in the studio, staying focused yet allowing for natural and spontaneous creative ideas to flow.Avishai Rozen aka ATellerMaggie Rogers, Dominic Fike
”As an artist who works on a lot of collaborations you sometimes come across those special moments and special people were everything feels effortless Marc is one of those people who put you at ease and brings the best out of you.

”I first met Marc Swersky in September 2014 when I joined his Music Mentorship program and my life was changed forever. In that very first session we began our collaboration on the song "Moments" and my interaction with Marc in both the mentorship and songwriting spheres was so positive and inspiring that I made a decision that very day to dedicate myself to a full time career in music. Marc took an interest in my entire music career and he kindly referred me to the vocal coach that he worked with, so that I could up level my vocalist skills while continuing to work with Marc as my mentor and cowriter. Marc Swersky is a unique individual - a super talented, kind, firm, supportive, generous, genius visionary and I cannot wait to work with him again!Helen O'SheaIndependent Artist
”There are few people in this world that will give you their undivided attention, honest thoughts, or unconditional support. Marc does it all. He is the true definition of a leader, and a mentor. If you have the privilege to work with Marc, you will see first hand how much time, energy and effort he invests into your project, and it’s because he cares about you making a difference. He does not want you to be the next anyone, he wants you to be the first “you,” and a wildly successful one.Mack B.Musician Guidance
