Luke Marzec -- Chances

“Say One More Time” by Luke Marzec

With a powerful voice that’s like sand and glue, soulful UK artist Luke Marzec first caught my attention last October with the debut single “When We First Met.” Having now listened to his outstanding first EP — Chances, which was released last week — there’s clearly layers and layers of musical talent behind his strained boozy howl.

Marzec made Chances last year after dropping out of London’s Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance. For the record, he limited himself to an instrumental core of upright piano, drums, bass, synth, saxophone and voice — while writing, playing, producing and recording everything on his own.

The EP’s third track, “Say One More Time,” is our Song of the Day.
