Most musicians you meet can either sing or write and in most cases. However, Fantastic Mr Marcel is undoubtedly the triple threat as a singer, songwriter, and illustrator. As an artist he believes that art is always changing and takes different forms when it comes to expression. He believes that the artist job is to explore every avenue and create a form of art that fully expresses the emotion you would like your music to evoke. Fantastic! Camden Monthly decided to join Mr Fantastic Mr Marcel to find out the man behind the art.
What inspired you to get into music?
I always really enjoyed listening to music and singing along when I was young, it was therapeutic through hard times. I really enjoyed the feeling I got and how it transformed me, healed me and helped me along the way like a friend who listened and understood me but also related to everything I was feeling. This was the moment I decided I want to make music to heal people to bring them joy, change their moods and also inspire them to feel something and make positive changes in their life.
After Graduating from my degree this was the moment I fell in love with music, decided to pursue it and I haven’t been in love with anything else ever since.
How would you describe your music?
Its took me a while and I found it hard to describe my music but I would say, soul, pop, hip-hop alternative. But mainly soul music.
What would you say is your recording and song writing style?
I use all the methods pretty much, I always writing things down in note so I always have material or ideas ready. I’ve had writing processes where I’ve worked with producer from scratch or people have made beats or instrumentation for me.

My main aim has always been to reach as many people with my music, but I would like to be working and collaborating with artist I find influential, performing on stages such as the 02 arena and touring.

My music can be found on all major platforms, such as Spotify, Youtube, iTunes, google play and amazon music and also instagram .
