Veteran San Francisco singer/songwriter Cole Marquis began his career in the early '80s in the acclaimed neo-psychedelic pop band 28th Day. After that group broke up in the mid-'80s, he moved on to the Downsiders. In the mid-'90s, Marquis formed the eccentric space pop outfit the Snowmen and continued to release solo efforts. The laid-back, atmospheric Treasure Island Serenade came out in February 2001.
