This week’s Single of the Week – Proverbs – Marcus Atom

Hailing from Chicago, singer-songwriter Marcus Anthony Johnson is enigmatic soul meets R&B as Marcus Atom.

A vocalist in the 2017 Humanz ensemble of the Grammy-nominated album Humanz by the Gorillaz, Atom already has a long track record of accomplishments under his belt including collaborations with Morrissey’s Matt Walker, and Chi-town native Cofresi on the producer’s song, “Coldheart,” which received praise from media tastemakers.

In addition to collaborations, Marcus’ extensive resume also includes sharing the stage with some of the music industry’s most esteemed talents, including Pusha T, Vince Staples, Carly Simon, Anthony Hamilton, De La Soul, Zebra Katz, and many more.

The Chicago-based drummer-turned-vocalist recently releases his debut album, Love Vs. War. With emphatic command over both voice and song, Marcus reflects openly on the highs and lows of a life pursuing music, unfurling a narrative rife with romance, tragedy and redemption.

From artful soul and smooth funk to bawdy boy R&B and beyond — Marcus recounts his life’s journey in this earnest, darkly funny, and musically accomplished debut across 13 tracks.

We have picked what we feel is one of the stand out tracks from the album. ‘Proverbs’, is iLive UK’s Single of the Week.
