Marc is kicking off his tour with his favorite artist, Ty Dolla Sign. “We had a song a few years ago, ‘That’s Love’ and have run in the same industry circles so it was just amazing for this opportunity to present itself,” Marc remarked.
Singersroom had the opportunity to get the scoop on the “Gossip Columns” Tour, plus a few sneak peek details about his new project dropping this year.
Singersroom: What are you most excited about for the “Gossip Columns” Tour?
Marc E. Bassy: I’m most excited about meeting and connecting with my fans; I want my fans to know that I am very approachable and far from standoffish.
SR: What has influenced you as an artist?
MEB: The Bay; my environment has influenced me. A lot of times artists from The Bay don’t always get the respect we deserve. The Bay is its own!
SR: How do you stay current as an artist in an ever-changing industry?
MEB: Honestly, I focus on the lyrics. It’s not about the trends, it’s about the emotion it provokes, and most of the time the beat is something I can vibe to all just based on how I’m feeling that day.
SR: You’ve been classified in various genres including R&B, Hip-Hop, Soul, Pop, and Reggae-Pop; how are you maintaining being so diverse?
MEB: I don’t try to be; I honestly flow with the music. Music is like water, if you try to block it with something, it will find a way to seep through somewhere else.
SR: What can we expect for the rest of the year from you?
MEB: A new project! I can’t give too many details, but I’m working with a top producer behind major artists. I’m excited and have never been so excited to release anything, but I will be releasing the 1st single very soon.
