Adrian Marcel


THERE’S NO LEAVING THE BAY AREA. NO MATTER HOW FAR AWAY YOU MIGHT MOVE, IF YOU GREW UP IN OAKLAND, YOU’LL BRING IT WITH YOU.  THE CITY BOASTS A PROUD MUSICAL LEGACY INCLUDING SLY STONE, KEYSHIA COLE, JOHN LEE HOOKER, AND COUNTLESS OTHERS. EVEN TUPAC SPENT SOME CRUCIAL TIME THERE. KEEP IN MIND, ALL OF THOSE ARTISTS PAID RESPECT TO THOSE VERY SAME STREETS. SINGER AND SONGWRITER ADRIAN MARCEL CARRIES THAT SPIRIT WITH HIM WHEREVER HE GOES. THAT CHARM HELPED CATAPULT “2AM” [FEATURING SAGE THE GEMINI] TO NATIONAL NOTORIETY IN 2014. THIS BREAKOUT SINGLE SOARED TO #4 ON THE ITUNES TOP R&B SONGS CHART AND GARNERED AN ASTOUNDING 14 MILLION-PLUS YOUTUBE/VEVO VIEWS IN LESS THAN SIX MONTHS, ANNOUNCING THE ARRIVAL OF A NEW VOICE IN THE PROCESS.

AT THE SAME TIME, MARCEL RELEASED THE CRITICALLY LAUDED WEAK AFTER NEXT MIXTAPE. EXECUTIVE PRODUCED AND HOSTED BY FELLOW BAY NATIVE AND MODERN SOUL TRAILBLAZER RAPHAEL SAADIQ, THE COLLECTION BOASTED APPEARANCES BY KELLY ROWLAND, CASEY VEGGIES, SNOOP DOGG, AND MORE AS WELL AS A SLEW OF STRIKING R&B BANGERS. ALONG THE WAY, BET NAMED HIM A “MUSIC MATTERS” ARTIST, WHILE ROLLING STONE CALLED HIM “ONE TO WATCH”. HE EVEN HIT THE ROAD SUPPORTING KEYSHIA COLE AND ELLE VARNER.
