Upcoming: Marques Toliver

Poor Marques has had a bit of a stop-start career since his busking days pre-2009. Even though Adele raved about him and he made an appearance on Jools Holland, this London-based pioneer of the R&B fiddle (classically trained and all that) is beginning to make waves following his signing to Bella Union.

Toliver has just released a new mixtape online – the rather depressingly named Studying for my PhD – but it’s Magic Look (below) that got our pulse racing. Think of him as an urban Seth Lakeman, or alternatively a John Legend that doesn’t make us want to kill ourselves out of boredom.
