I first heard Marques Toliver’s name at SXSW a little too late to see him perform. But his music’s got me hooked. He’s got soul. And what I have seen/heard he’s got some massive talent. Tons and tons of it. There’s an EP coming out on Bella Union called Butterflys Are Not Free on April 25th. The classically-trained violinist-once a street busker in NYC- has musical ties with TVOTR, Grizzly Bear, Holly Miranda, and did we mention that Adele’s a fan? He’s originally from South Daytona, FLO and now based in London. When he sings, he demands your attention. Sound/vision below.
“Deep In My Heart”
“White Sails” (demo)
