Marius Billgobenson – Let Me Know (Spotify)

“If it’s possible to sound unique & familiar at the same time? This soulful fusion of jazz, blues, pop & R&B with a twist of afro-beat certainly gets close. Marius Billgobenson’s rich vocals are a perfect fit for the harmoniously layered, mostly acoustic, slow burn rhythmic instrumentation. “Let Me Know” is a superbly produced late night tear jerker that also has a feel good factor if that makes sense?”

Marius Billgobenson is a true musical citizen of the world committed to bridging longstanding cultural divides by creating a soulful and empowering fusion of jazz, blues, pop, R&B and the dynamic rhythms and vocal sounds indigenous to his homeland of the Congo. His invigorating blend of jazz instrumentation and African music seeks to bring awareness of disenfranchised communities. "Let Me Know" is a ballad about trying to salvage a broken relationship.
