Marques Toliver: An R&B Crooner With Strings Attached
In February of this year, in a sprawling Greenpoint loft , I made the acquaintance of Marques Toliver. We were put together for the purposes of possibly doing business by my friend Filip at Playout, a brand and talent management company in Antwerp.
Early February was the frenzy of Fashion Week, so I had debated whether I really wanted to jump on the G train to parts unknown of Brooklyn to weigh the future market index of another up and coming young musician. I mean, I love listening to music, but how the hell do you know musical stardom in advance?
