Marcome signs Canadian distribution deal with Select + download MP3, watch video



Montreal singer, songwriter Marcomé (mar-ko-may), recently signed a Canadian record distribution deal with Select.

Marcomé, a gifted Canadian singer, songwriter and musician, belongs to this elite group. Her music embodies passion, emotes transcendence. Marcomé blends English lyrics with her unique wordless language ‘onomatopoeia’; her compositions create languages, which transcend their themes.

In her unique method of vocalisation, Marcomé sings syllables from her subconscious, which evoke sensual moods and settings. A vessel if you will, which transports the listener on an aural voyage through time, space and emotion. Her organic approach to sound and song compositions, blends world rhythms, middle eastern intonations and new-age ‘airiness’ then layers it with her sublime voice. Thus creating a “New World” music genre in the process.

Not only is Marcomé a proficient keyboardist and percussionist, she also produces arranges and engineers all of her own musical works, releasing two critically acclaimed solo albums entitled ‘Seven Seas’ (1995) and ‘River Of Soul’ (2007). Her impressive professional experience and background as a quality sound and mastering engineer has allowed her to collaborate with renowned artists and producers.

Marcomé began her music-recording career in 1995 with the release of her debut album entitled ‘Seven Seas’. In this freshman effort, she incorporates keyboards; fretless bass and traditional world beat instruments. ‘Seven Seas’ explores diverse human and cultural experiences; a true journey through the Seven Seas.

The writing and recording of this album was magically completed within a few months while taking decades to brew. By layering her vocal tracks, and by comprehending the subtle use of space, reverb and time delay, she was able to create an ethereal voice - a hallow instrument in itself.

The critic’s reaction to the album was both immediate and resounding. This remarkable debut album has travelled around the world for years now and can be heard extensively on television shows in Japan and Korea.

The gap of years between conception and eventual release of her sophomore album ‘River Of Soul’ in 2007, allowed the artist to mature and evolve both emotionally and spiritually; yet most of all as a nurturing and dedicated mother to her only child.

Marcomé’s strength lies in her ability to weave and create multi-coloured sounds with strong melodies. In this ‘River Of Soul’ succeeds. It’s a recording imbued with intimacy and laced with introspection. It was cinematically conceived; it’s a feast for the eyes as well as the ears. Welcome to the ‘River Of Soul’, a voyage filled with spirituality, imagination, sensitivity and a surreal sense of being.

‘River Of Soul’ is an album, which will mesmerize and enchant you. It will awaken a new perception and touch your soul and in it you will discover a deep connection. Music at it’s best, is a gift.
