Fantastic Mr Marcel

In October 2009 I recorded my first song, "Made For My Heart". I wanted to write a story about love, magic and fantasy. "Made For My Heart" is about the creation of my perfect lover and it was during the recording of this song that my hunger was fuelled to create more music.

Fantastic Mr Marcel - Stop Calling Me Names mixtape Vol 1

 Will-I-Am meets Andrea 3000 in human form as Theon-Marcel, a British singer, songwriter, and illustrator. He was born in London and spent his early years there before moving to Ghana, where he his familial roots lie. In 2002 he finally settled back in London.

Heavily influenced by storylines, action and superheroes, over time I became captivated by this imagery and always wanted to become a hero myself, hence the name “Fantastic Mr Marcel”. It was during this time I began to express myself in a way that established my individuality and my signature style as an artist.

In October 2009 I recorded my first song, "Made For My Heart". I wanted to write a story about love, magic and fantasy. "Made For My Heart" is about the creation of my perfect lover and it was during the recording of this song that my hunger was fuelled to create more music.

It was then that I started listening to the lyrics in the songs and, in 2002 started writing properly. I remember being in my room, putting on my favourite records and singing until my mum told me to stop making noise.

This is the first volume of my music and is titled "Stop Calling Me Names" Mixtape Vol. 1. I came up with the title, "Stop Calling Me Names", because I have been called every famous black musician under the sun, most commonly Wil.I.Am. This is my way of shedding these comparisons and expressing myself as an artist and an individual. 

Vocalist / Theon Marcel

Stop Calling Me Names - Mixtape

by Fantatsic Mr marcel

It took me a while to categorise my music and I can finally say with the style of sound I created I would call it soul, pop, hip pop.

I am an artist and I believe that art is always changing and takes different forms when it comes to expression. I believe that as an artist it’s your job to explore every avenue and create a form of art that fully expresses the emotion you would like your music to evoke.

I’ve started rapping in a few of the new tracks and even though it is out of my comfort zone this is the path I choose to take to tell different story I want to tell. I believe in taking risks but most importantly enjoying what you do and having fun.

I can tell you that as a musician my goal is to create music and art that translates emotions and sounds which are felt or can be identified by anyone as their own. I want to use my music to create a change in people in a positive way.
