Known as a ‘national treasure’ by the press, singer-songwriter, producer and DJ MARCEL
rose to fame with Blazin Squad in 2002 after they released a cover of Bone Thugs-N-Harmony track, ‘Crossroads’ which reached number one in the UK Singles Chart. MARCEL went on to secure seven top ten hits, including ‘Flip Reverse’ and ‘Love on the Line’, before securing himself as a finalist on the 2017 hit reality TV show Love Island.
Now, in between TV fame and media commitments, MARCEL is cementing himself as an innovative artist and recently released the afro-swing hit ‘They Wanna Know’, a well-received foray into his forthcoming EP ‘Circles’ due for release later this year.
Not afraid of incorporating his most personal experiences in his songwriting, his latest offering ‘Sober’ addresses the price of fame, highlighting the side to it that people don’t see; the lows, the pressure of the media and the unwanted attention.
