Mar-lo’s Rhythm releases new flagship single “The Key”
January 29, 2013

Email: smccauley@mondotunes.com

Omni-talented instrumentalist Mar-lo’s Rhythm has released his latest single, “The Key.” The track is a layed back, grooving title with heavy Motown influences in the vein of Earth, Wind, and Fire or George Duke. The song has a suave, cocktail-lounge feel and does just as well as a backdrop for romance as it does as a soundtrack for highway cruising.

Regardless of how excellent the music sounds, it is not the product of a band, strictly speaking; Mar-lo's Rhythm is actually the work of a solo instrumentalist. Mar-lo's Rhythm produces contemporary rhythm and blues music with jazz undertones, although this pigeonhole is too limiting for the scope of the artist, himself. Mar-lo's Rhythm mainly has the skills of guitar and bass, but his understanding of percussion and vocals feature largely in “The Key.” His studio skills also figure into his continued success as a musician and recording artist. He has released two full-length LP albums to date, “Go'in Back (to When...)” and “Easybak,” as well as a string of other singles available online.

The elasticity of Mar-lo's Rhythm is due mostly to his open-mindedness with regard to music listening. The only common trait of all his favorite acts is excellence. “The artists I grew up with and admired,” says Mar-lo's Rhythm, “were Earth Wind and Fire, P-Funk, and George Duke.” But he doesn't stop there. Mar-lo goes on to name a flurry of other classic groups across all the top genres: “Led Zeppelin, Stanley Clarke, Jimi Hendrix, James Brown, ZZ Top, Michael Jackson, Paul McArtney, Kool & the Gang, Jeff Beck, and many others.” How many others there could possibly be is known only to Mar-lo, and probably not even to him. Nevertheless, as the artist himself says, “You can hear their influences on my sound.”

Mar-lo started playing guitar at 14 and went on to write and perform in bands throughout his youth. He enrolled at college as a music major but eventually changed to business for the usual reasons. He has performed in clubs and records music on a regular basis.

“The Key” represents for him the particular push one makes in order to achieve. “The main theme of this song,” he writes, “is that one can accomplish one's dreams – if one is willing to work for them. The Key is that special symbol of effort that helps one make that dream a reality.”

“The Key” by Mar-Lo's Rhythm is available everywhere online beginning late January, 2013.
