Welcome back to BuzzMusic, Marcus Porter, it’s always a pleasure when we get to catch up on your artistic journey! How have you found your artistic style grow from your previous release to the release of, “Soup for the Soul?"
I am ecstatic to let you all back into the journey! My style has grown a lot over the last couple of years & Soup for the Soul is just one of the many pieces of music where the growth has come for me & my artistry.
Could you please share what the recording process looked like when fashioning, “Soup for the Soul?"
It started with me building the beat I went with the piano melody then built around it adding the horns, the bells & then finally the drums. I wrote the hook first on a four-bar loop of just melodies before the drums even got added and then it all just kind of came together when I started arranging the song for what I wanted it to be.
What are you hoping that listeners take away from your messaging in this song?
I am hoping that the listeners take away I am cooking up a different sound & taste for their pallets for music and the truth and honesty in it and that I won’t stop being me in the way I do in life for myself or people & I’m trying to feed them solid music for their soul.
You have been known for the consistency in the quality of your releases. In a world where artists tend to debate over quality versus quantity, what’s your stance?
I believe you need both, quality is what keeps them listening. I also believe you definitely should be consistent with dropping but doing it at a pace that allows you to still have the quality you need to drop.
What's next for me is that I will be dropping a few more singles along with videos and possibly a couple of bodies of work. 2021 will be a busy year for sure you will be hearing from me again soon!
