YourCuzMarcus is an Irish artist who's unique and honest approach to writing music has garnered much attention over the last twelve months. Marcus hit the ground running in 2020 when his debut single Obey amassed over 350,000 streams on Spotify and received national and international radio play. His critically acclaimed sophomore single Redemption was featured on Spotify editorial playlists New Music Friday UK, Chilled Pop Hits, Easy, A Breath of Fresh Éire and Fresh Finds UK and Ireland. Marcus released his debut EP, entitled Not Real, in 2021. In December 2021 Marcus played his debut headline show to a sold out, full capacity crowd upstairs in Whelan's.
Drawing from a host of influences, Marcus credits his father's love of great songwriters coupled with his own affinity towards hip hop as the hallmarks of his unique sound and natural lyricism. Marcus was a musical child who's attention wandered throughout a turbulent adolescence. It wasn't until later, having dropped out of college, that he began to write and play music again. The following years saw Marcus become a regular on the Irish live music circuit and a familiar name in songwriting and hip hop circles.
