The soulful sounds of Marcus Corowa are set to fill a number of venues across Australia, as this award winning Indigenous singer/songwriter prepares to showcase his music to new audiences.

Promising a night of original material and classic covers, Marcus combines elements of blues, jazz and funk to create a soulful, soothing sound that is distinctly his own.

Marcus has turned heads with his catchy melodies, heartfelt lyrics and silky smooth singing voice, drawing inspiration from his Aboriginal and South Sea Islander roots. Awarded the 2012 Deadly Award for Most Promising New Talent in Music, he has also been a finalist in the 2010 QMUSIC Song Awards Finalist Indigenous Category; 2011 APRA Professional Development Awards Finalist Indigenous Category; and received a Highly Commended in the 2010 QMUSIC Song Awards Highly Commended Indigenous & Gospel categories

A life-long Queenslander, Marcus made the bold and spontaneous move to Sydney in 2011 and has since notched up scores of performances, including: Sydney’s South Sea Islander Recognition Day; The Sydney Festival; Yabun Festival; Adelaide Fringe Festival; Bundaberg’s South Sea Islander Conference; Deadly Vibe; Guringai Music Festival; and countless NAIDOC celebrations around Australia.

Marcus has also supported the likes of Marcia Hines, Christine Anu, Jessica Mauboy, Mark Seymour, Casey Donovan, Whitehouse and The Medics.

A gifted composer, Marcus contributed to the musical score of The New Black, which was showcased as part of the 2012 Arts Centre Melbourne Carnegie 18 program.

This is your chance to hear and witness one of Australia’s most promising new talents as he hits the road for a series of live dates around the country.
