Marcel knew he wanted to sing at a young age. He studied music incessantly, learning as much as he could while receiving formal training as a child. His career started to take off as he started to perform locally. With his impressive vocal range and stage swagger, he was immediately compared to Chico DeBarge and Al B! Sure. Marcel accepts the comparisons while remaining true to his own lane. El Seven Recordings and Republic Records saw his talent and the truth in his music that led to signing him in early 2013.
On his debut single Waiting, he slides from a fluttering falsetto into a bluesy hook as synths pulsate below. It's a formidable introduction into 7 Days of Weak and Marcel’s musical gifts. Currently residing in Atlanta, Marcel is bringing the spotlight back to his beloved Oakland and R&B music.
