Local Heroes: MarcLo


We spent some time with MarcLo - singer/ songwriter who creates music that combines sounds of R&B, Electro, Soul and Hip-Hop - to chat about his upcoming performance here at Space 15 Twenty.

Hi There! Tell us a little bit about yourself.

I go by the name of MarcLo! I was raised in South Florida and spent most of my youth studying music and playing sports. Over the past few years, I’ve been writing and producing for some of our most beloved singers. Today, I’m excited to be giving the people music coming directly from me.

What kind of role has music played in your life? Was this something you always saw yourself doing? From an early age I was running around my parents’ house in Spiderman underwear singing Jackson 5 tunes. Not much has changed. In all seriousness, I’ve been really lucky to have made a career of writing and producing songs for so many talented artists. Music gives me life.

How would you describe your musics vibe?

Positive energy vibes! My sound is musically nostalgic and lyrically on cue with what’s going on with me today. I want to take you back to feel-good music of the 90’s with tastes of the future!

What are you currently working on?

I’m putting the finishing touches on my album Nostalgia. Also writing and producing for several artists along with my team, The Monsters & Strangerz.

Dream collab – who would it be?

Any advice for young musicians?

For the young musicians out there, do music because you are truly passionate about it. Lead with your heart and don’t expect for big checks to come quickly. Commit for the long run if you are serious. If I can do it, so can you.

Lastly, what do you hope for people to take away from your upcoming performance at Space 15 Twenty?

Although we live in a wild world and crazy times, I just hope to make at least 1 person in the audience walk away saying, “Everything is gonna be alright.”
