Swedish soul singer Marcus Lindgren released his debut single this month and is currently working on more music.
"I've a lot more soul and hip-hop to give", Marcus said to me after we met at a recent event.
The single ‘Hoppas’ was written as on request for a group of youths in Nacka, a suburb in Stockholm, that work in a group called Polarna. They started a project they call #starkutanknark (#strongwithoutdrugs)
The goal is to make kids believe in themselves and choose their own future and creativity instead of drugs.
‘So I wrote this song about dreaming and believing!’ said Marcus.
It’s very much needed.
Smooth soulful vocals and a gorgeously sharp video, which also features SoLi on vocals, complete a very positive debut!
