MARQUES TOLIVER – White Sails

An artist on the verge of blowing up (and quite bloody deservedly), Marques Toliver is a musician we discovered a few years back thanks to the wondrous blogosphere. Unfortunately, his location in the US and a relative lack of success was a blow to our chances of witnessing the man until a visit to New York last summer allowed us to literally stumble into a bar in Brooklyn to witness him performing his uniquely emotive form of powerful modern pop music.

With an appearance on Jools Holland, a selection of wonderful performances in London and New York and an EP via Bella Union, we have been revisiting his beauteous voice and remarkably controlled musical pluckings that truly brings soul to pop music via ‘White Sails’.  Get into him before the world does….
