With gospel feeding into their nuanced lyricism and old school blues weaving into their RnB grooves, each of Marcus Brookins’ tracks is a smorgasbord of soul, that goes much further than offering tonal comfort.
The perfect introduction to their connectable style is the lead track ‘Made Man?’ from their 2021 release, ‘Roof Top Sessions’. The imagery which Marcus Brookins can conjure with their enlightened and humbled lyricism is animated by their soft vocal timbre which is never imposing. Instead, Made Man? is a gravitas-filled release that keeps drawing you in and allowing you to pick out new wisdom with each hit.
Made Man? Is now available to stream via Spotify.
