HWGA is Marcela’s first EP that was released on Oct 18th. It blends the topic of love and war with RnB and a dash of pop. With musical influences such as Christina Aguilera, Mariah Carey, Lauryn Hill, JoJo and more, you’ll hear an original sound with soulful riffs and vocal melodies by a girl who grew up in the 90’s and early 2000’s. Complimented with production that combines a suite of live instruments, modern synths and hard hitting drums.
This EP focuses on such a relatable topic about struggles within love because well, who doesn’t like writing/singing about love?
Marcela’s thoughts: “As an artist there are a lot of different messages I’d like to deliver and I’m anxious to do so. I’ve had so many influences growing up but I’ve always gravitated towards big voices that take me on the craziest riff rides. I love and respect so many of the big voices I grew up with in the late 90’s/early 2000’s and am impressed with a lot of artists that are coming up now. It has all come together to help form my own voice, which I am unashamedly ok with how it is still being created and can’t wait to see the different journeys it takes me emotionally and artistically. I’m eager to grow and want to do SO much because of my many different interests within music and life itself but my love for R&B stays at my core and I’d like to motivate and inspire as many lives that welcome me to do so.”
She recently shared with her fans a collaboration between her, producer Nelly Pro Toolz, hip hop artist Dutch Rebelle called “Don’t Know Why.” It’s a remake of the popular dancehall/reggae track by Buju Banton and Wayne Wonder that was released back in 1992.
Stay tuned for her creative videos that will highlight this and other slamming music!
