EP: Marc E. Bassy – East Hollywood

Debuted by VIBE, the Alternative RnB Singer/Songwriter Releases East Hollywood EP


Critical Praise for Marc E. Bassy:

“It’s time we all get better acquainted with the one they call Marc E. Bassy.” Okayplayer

“Marc E. Bassy is a fresh voice and one of LA’s own. He fits comfortably in the space between Frank Ocean and Mac Miller.” – LA Music Blog

“His bouncy flow channels the manic energy of Chance The Rapper; the animated style and tempered synths of “Cigarettes” could comfortably fit as a b-side to Acid Rap” – SPIN

“We were able to give Marc his first ever solo performance at our SXSW Showcase, and it exceeded all expectations.” – Good Music All Day

“A very unique artist, you’ll want to tune in for 2014.” – Hypnotic Hippo

The EP:

LA by-way-of-the-Bay Area RnB singer songwriter Marc E. Bassy has released his second project, the East Hollywood EP, on his Soundcloud page for free download. Described as “smooth” by The FADER and a “fresh voice” by LA Music Blog, Marc’s unique blend of boozy, bass-heavy, sexy storytelling takes listeners through a recent period in which he went through a series of major transitions. Having written for artists such as Chris Brown, Usher, Akon, Skizzy Marz, Prince Royce, Allen Stone, HBK Gang, and more, Marc’s experience in the music industry is obvious upon first listen. 

Named after the downtrodden area of LA where he spent most of his time creating this project following a break-up with his band of 10 years and also his girlfriend, Marc found the strength and inspiration to cope by going through a period of self-medicating and non-stop partying followed by a period of binge reading. Inspired by American authors Charles Bukowski and Henry Miller, Marc felt an especially strong connection to their writings this time around, as the area he was staying at was literally the same as where they also stayed at in East Hollywood. “The energy there fueled me to create. LA and Hollywood specifically, is wild because you can look down the street and see the wealthiest of the wealthy mingling with superstars and look  the other way to see a homeless couple and their dog begging for money. Having been in this industry for 10+ with my former band and writing for people,  it’s easy to get sucked into the scene with all its addictions like alcohol, drugs, chasing women, but I’m inspired by Henry Miller; he was living amongst prostitutes, gamblers, alcoholics, right in the belly of the beast and reporting how it feels to be there. With the East Hollywood EP, I’m reporting live from the center of all the beauty and the bullshit.”

Proud of the work he put in during an especially difficult period of his life, Marc says, “This is my best work to date. I love getting my heart broken. It’s the best – it makes you pick yourself off the floor and do better.”
