J. Marco used to be a big part of Nashville act New City Savages, now he’s on his own releasing his own music. For his new album, “Myth”, that came out October 21st, Marco has put together some outstanding work as a writer, vocalist, and guitarist. Recently, the Nashville-based musician talked with Alternative Addiction about switching gears from New City Savages to releasing his own music.
“I was writing some stuff on the side that didn’t fit in with my other band,” said Marco when talking to AA. “I kept going back to it and I kept building that stuff up into a decently-sized catalog built up. I remember one day it kind of hit me – I should at least record these and see what happens. Even if I just released them as a free BandCamp release. As I kept working on them I realized that there might be a little more there than what I originally thought. The seed was planted in my brain and it kept growing until it felt like the right thing to do was to focus on these songs and this album.”
A gradual process of switching projects doesn’t mean that everything else with J Marco’s solo music came along slowly. Writing this music happened pretty quickly according to Marco.
“They did come along pretty quickly. I go through bursts where I can write four songs in a week or two. There’s some of that going on with this record. I wrote some of them during the recording of the album too. When you’re recording you’re in such a creative place that sometimes songs just come out. “Stranger In The Night” was written during the recording itself and that was a song we ended up releasing early, so both ways of writing work well.”
J. Marco’s “Myth” is out and available now. Keep checking back to Alternative Addiction for more on the Nashville-based singer/songwriter.
