If Motown or Stax Records were looking for the next great set of song writing musicians and a potential legendary lead singer they would probably start with these guys. They are a mix of classic soul & Neo-Soul, in one word…TIMELESS.

Album Notes
"3 years is an excruciating wait to share another conversation with those you love. You try embracing patience, trusting they will return. Yet with clammy hands and a hopeful, unsure heart you eye your cell, check your email, and search for Internet clues on when your beloveds will kiss your ear once more. And just when you had about given up on your maddening relationship, believing Marcell & The Truth had gotten your Hopes Too High with their promising debut, they return, rewarding your loyalties with songs of love and commitment and sagely speaking of Symbols. Seduced, you’re theirs. Listening to The Truth glide through these rhapsodic melodies and the tender, masculine beauty of Marcell’s baritone on these timely, healing lyrics, one imagines this is what it must have been to first love elder griots like Donny in soul’s yesteryears. Hopes fulfilled, you savor this conversation; secretly praying the wait for nourishment won’t ever be so long again."

Symbol Marcell and the Truth
The is a one of the most pure, soulful & sensual CD's I've heard in a long while. Amazing talent and story teller! Get a tall drink, dim the lights, sit back and enjoy.

To Tell The Truth
Fantasitc album. Actually a throwback to the days when you expressed love for your woman first and foremost. The song "Cant Wait" is infectious and communicates what every man wants to say to that very special woman. A true gem of song, deliberate, cool and sexy. I cant wait to tell the world that I love this group.


Marcell you did it again!!! It's rare that an artist can take the art to new levels. This man gets so naked with his music and for a black man that means so much for so many. It takes so much faith, love and confidence to draw from this emotional well like he's doing. Just incredible! Thank you Thank you Thank you Marcell for another great project. 5 Stars baby. Keep it up beautiful black man!

Incredible (musician) Connecticut
This album is timeless. Who writes like this these days? Marcell talks about broad topics in such a specfic way. He makes you examine things different. Everytime I listen to this album I hear something new. It's jam packed with sick vocals, great musicianship and the illest lyrics I've heard in years. 5 stars for sure. BUY THIS ALBUM PEOPLE, TRUST AND BELIEVE!!!

My Goodness
This album hits so many places in me. I needed "Seed You Water" to come out of a terrible relationship & played it every day I studied for the bar. "Somewhere in Between" called me to balance my life more and slow down. "Greatest Love" helps me take better inventory of relationships I want to build or consider ending. "Symbols" my lord challenges me so much, I play this every day at lunch to watch getting caught up at work in trying to blend in with shallow thinking. Marcell you have no idea what this music is literally doing for some of our minds and souls, I'm serious. Keep listening to God this is clearly bigger than you, we need it. This is what music is supposed to do. You have a fan for life.

Real Soul
A strong follow up to the great "Hopes too high" album from a few years ago. Sounding a little like The Rance Allen Group or even Frankie Beverly & Maze.
"Can't wait" is one of the tracks of the year!

Mary Anne Wilson

A True Artist
It's always refreshing when an artist creates art. It seems entertainers rarely write music that you can visually see. Marcell writes songs as if he is writing a book that allows your imagination to participate. He writes familiar topics in fresh ways and clever angles to revisit what we may already know but may not have considered it quite that way he describes it or he helps us see things we may not have seen at all. This is more than music; it is art.

Josh Heiss (UK)

One of the best...
This is one of the best soul album I've heard in over 10 years.

Kareem Harding (Detroit)

Don't Sleep
I understand why words like "brilliant" "genius" are used about this man and his music. This is so ahead of it's time but so on time. Marcell is the best thing that soul music has to offer today. You take any album thats come out in the past five years with neo-soul, soul or r&b and put this on right after and then tell me am I wrong. Most of these other artist hide behind the tracks and they ain't saying much of nothing but this guys music is good, lyrics are timeless, voice and range is legendary status. We have a star right here for real. Great great music!

August Miles (Florida)

This how soul music is supposed to be done
This is real soul music. As a fellow artist, you call many of us higher and to that I say thank you Marcell & the Truth. Can't wait to hear what's next from you
