“There’s something untouchable about the experience of art.” // How do you turn a passion into a career? Is the journey more about reaching for every opportunity, or letting go of expectations?

Marlon is vulnerable, honest, thoughtful, and as you might expect from a pro songwriter he’s got a beautifully poetic way of seeing the way things work in this world. // Marlon grew up listening to the classics and started playing instruments when he was a kid. He remembers the first time he played in front of people; something sparked within him, making him relentlessly pursue any opportunity to make music for people since.
