Marc Roberts is an Irish singer-songwriter best known for representing his home country on home soil in the 1997 Contest in Dublin with Mysterious Woman, finishing in second place, which as of 2016 is the country's last appearance in the Top 5.
Roberts's debut album was released in 1998 and to date he has released six studio albums.
