Marlon Williams has been heralded as the "impossible love child of Elvis, Roy Orbison & Townes Van Zandt". There’s something in it. A two-time winner of NZ Music Awards, the folk singer, who is now based in Melbourne, is taking leaps forward in his career. In recent weeks and months, he's been booked to the line-ups for the Meredith & Queenscliff festivals in Australia, he’s supporting Justin Townes Earle, sold-out single tour shows, and performed at TEDx Sydney at the Sydney Opera House. Marlon delivered buzzy showcases at the 2014 Bigsound summit in Brisbane, including a set at his publisher Native Tongue's party. A debut solo record is due in Feb 2015. Expect to see and hear a lot more from this man with the voice of an angel.
