Sell-out Rita Ora Support – 3rd April – Hoxton Bar and Kitchen
Wretch 32 support dates announced
You may not be instantly familiar with the name L Marshall, but with two Top 5 singles behind him, you’ve definitely heard his music. He is the writer and featured artist on Wretch 32’s critically acclaimed No.5 hit Traktor, and also created Loick Essien’s No.2 smash, How We Roll. Now, with the release of ‘The Wait Pt 2’ featuring Sincere & Sneakbo, L is ready to take centre stage as an artist in his own right.
A captivating, charismatic writer and performer, the 24 year-old is an incredible vocalist who treads the taut line between commercial appeal and underground credibility. Listening toThe Wait Mixtape, released late last year, you’ll find it impossible not to be won over by L’s skilled songwriting, tempo-twisting compositions and genre-refining vocal.
The mixtape won him huge support at 1Xtra and Choice FM, and showcases the song-writing flare which has led to be called upon to pen tracks for Kelis, Cheryl Cole and JLS. Having recently performed at HMV’s Next Big Thing and with support slots confirmed for Wretch 32, Professor Green and Roll Deep in the coming weeks, L is set to take his passion and charisma out of the studio and on to the stage.
Signed to Mercury Records in April 2011, L has spent the last few months recording his debut album with an A-list line-up of hitmakers including Jerry “Wonder” Duplessis (T.I., Lupe, Mary J Blige), Supa Dups (Drake, Eminem, Bruno Mars) and Novel (Gaga, Jason Derulo).
With influences ranging from Tupac, Aerosmith, Enya, Daft Punk and Lady Gaga, you can be assured his debut album will be as eclectic, diverse and, indeed, global as his upbringing
