Artist of the day: Stephen Marcos
At the age of 19, R&B singer Stephen Marcos has already stirred some buzz online thanks to a smooth selection of tracks on his Facebook and Reverbnation profiles. The hip-hop ballad Shorty Is Mine is a smoothly sung slow jam, and Backstage Pass is a kinky synth-pop ride.
But his most notable track to date is Wish, featuring another Tampa up-and-comer, Gabriel Antonio. It swells to life with ambitious synths, and skitters into a Timberlake-y pop ballad: "Me and you, this is our night / We can open this bottle girl, and leave 'em all behind."
Marcos recently released the official video for Wish, filmed on the beach and at various locations around Tampa Bay. it out after the jump.
