Marley J. Wills releases new single ‘Our Groove’



The voice of groove, soul and R ‘n’ B known as Marley J. Wills has released his latest single, “Our Groove.” The song has been released in collaboration with producer Manifest and DaGrooveStation (link provided below). A proper introduction of Wills, Manifest and DaGrooveStation to the world at large, “Our Groove” stands as an example of the spirit of soul and R ‘n’ B these artists are infusing their music with, and as proof that they are no rookies to the scene.


Marley J. Wills cites as main artistic influences a vast list of legends, such as Sugar Minot, Michael Jackson, Garnet Silk, Earth Wind and Fire, and Bones Thugs and Harmony. The rhythm and pop sensibilities of these geniuses emanate from “Our Groove” like heat, but there are also reggae vibes present, like those of Burning Spear, and a touch of funk in its delivery, like the natural power of James Brown.


Much of the titanic strength of “Our Groove,” comes from an obvious passion for meaningful poetry combined with music of the purest quality. One key line from Wills’ single runs, “It’s about putting the music back, back into the songs,” a direct declamation of modern trends in popular music today. While it may be said that each new era in music is decried by the former ones, current fads such as autotuned vocals, unrestrained studio effects and a dearth of lyrical meaning has been inexhaustibly questioned by critics, artists, and listeners of all ages, unilaterally for the first time.


Wills writes of his collaboration with Manifest, DaGrooveStation: “Lyrically, DaGroove is a music of positivity and hope, and a call-to-arms for us as one race to stand up and voice our fears, looking for solutions from within our communities and not from the powers that be. Although we are different faces from all walks and places, our problems are all the same, and history won’t solve them.”


Listening to tracks offered at DaGrooveStation, such as “Our Groove,” for just minutes alone is enough to understand the intensity with which these artists have carefully penned their words.


“Music has always been used to highlight the issues in our societies, and our music is written with all the above in mind,” continues Wills. “Most of all, from the truth – whether you like it or not.”


“Our Groove” by Marley J. Wills is available online worldwide beginning 1 February 2014. Get in early.
