Blues Revue

Blues Revue


Following a colourful career that has take in metal, motown and soul, Detroit's finest rock/blues export Marcus Malone has finally cut the album of his career.

'A Better Man' has already garnered the best reviews of his career. It's strong on songs with booming hooks, scintillating licks, a rainbow of tone colours and showcases Marcus's soulful vocals.

As getreadytorock noted: "Better Man is a career best. It's a classy song-led blues-rock album with a soulful heart."

Hailing from Detroit Michigan Marcus initially was coveted by Motown records - working on demos with some of the biggest names in the business -before being moved to LA by Ike Turner’s management team and signing with United Artists Records. The result was the all star hard-rock 'Marcus' album, which is still on the catalogue today and re released by Rock Candy Records in December 2016.

Growing up in Detroit meant he was always open to musical diversity. He hung out with the MC5, opened for Bog Seger and Iggy Pop, but it was his passion for rocking blues that led him to Europe.

He quickly made an impact by opening for BB King at the Albert Hall and he hit the Euro festival circuit in support of a brace of British label rock/blues solo albums. Ironically for an exiled American musician, it led to one of his songs appearing on the celebrated 'Blueprint - Best of British Blues' album.
