Usually artists embark to the red, white, and blue to seek their fortune n' fame, but Baltimore-born Max Marshall went against the current as she opted to nest in East London in order to nurture the budding of her soon-to-be blossoming singing career. Smart move considering the British future soul scene is just busting at the seams with talent galore, but not worried about the competition Miss Marshall is, as she's already clocked in prime studio time with Matrix & Futurebound, and landed a guest spot on their wildly popular 2013 single, "Control".
While she began as a wig designer for Lady Gaga (now why didn't I think of that while filing for unemployment?), Max Marshall is carving her name into the desk, and she's not going to dentition for the likes of "Yesterday", her latest installment. Debuting through i-D Magazine, urbanite life roosts in the track's suave chillax vibe that feels like summer afternoons and icy sweet popsicles and recalls the gritty heart of gold possessed in '90s R&B chanteuses whose names were either Aaliyah, Mary, or Faith. Miss Marshall has other rhythm and muses at her SoundCloud spot, and I suggest giving her debut mixtape, Forgive Me, some undivided attention.
