The first ever solo release from singer and musician Marcus Kar is an infectious, layered effort that rejects an obvious genre label. The self-titled three-song EP is a soulful pop exercise in storytelling, drawing from Kar’s own experiences with nods to Nina Simone and Paul Simon.
Born in west Africa, raised in south Minneapolis, Kar is a multi-instrumentalist who has been making music for over a decade, working in soul, jazz, rap, metal, folk and blues with a long list of Minnesota recording artists.
The Marcus Kar EP is available for free download on Bandcamp and Soundcloud:
All tracks are produced by Marcus Kar and frequent Free Range Music Cooperative collaborator Efren Maldonado, and written by Marcus Kar. Cover art by Lizardman.
