Singular Artists has announced a one-off show Upstairs at Whelan's, featuring rising alternative hip-hop artist Marcus (YourCuzMarcus).
Speaking about the live show, YourCuzMarcus said: "I'm buzzin' about doing this show in front of my hometown crowd. I've released five singles and the EP over the past 18 months and now I will finally get to play them and other new songs live with a band. I'm looking forward to the show."
Marcus (YourCuzMarcus) has received huge support for his singles ‘Redemption’, ‘The Juice’, ‘Let Them Know’, and ‘April’. They were featured in influential Spotify playlists such as New Music Friday UK, A Breathe Of Fresh Éire, Alt-Pop, Easy and Chilled Pop Hits.
The video for 'Juice' was created by Alan Dunne from Stubborn Monkey Media, who also worked with Marcus on his 2020 single, ‘Obey.’
Growing up in a varied musical household, Marcus’ influences came from two distinct areas.
His Dad’s love of musicians such as Bob Dylan, David Bowie, and Bob Marley, as well as his growing love affair with hip-hop. These two almost polarising tastes are what first engaged the artist to create his own direction, fusing the creative and inventive style of so many acts he admired to create something he could call his own.
His new EP Not Real has been born of a variety of influences and inspirations over the years. While growing on a diverse mix of everything from early folk artists to modern-day hip-hop, Marcus has developed a sound that is distinctly his and looks to bring his eclectic direction to the forefront of this new collection.
