Few artists manage to find the sweet spot when it comes to balancing the traditional soulful sounds of R&B with more contemporary flourishes, but with Marco McKinnis, that’s not the case. The Virginia based artist’s music wonderfully takes elements from both periods of time and delivers them in a refreshing and authentic package. It’s this, that sets him apart from his contemporaries and is showcased on his brilliant debut EP ‘Underground’ from last year which featured stand out singles ‘CPR’ and ‘Another Love’.
For his COLORS show, Marco McKinnis brings his smooth sounds with a stellar and sensuous performance of new single ‘Give It Up’ which is taken from his new EP ‘E-Merse’. Another exemplary and masterful effort, the follow up to previously released single ‘Deep’, encompasses a classic R&B vibe with the slick production serving as the backdrop to the singer’s stunning vocals. With a falsetto that’ll melt your heart, McKinnis absolutely nails it with this performance of ‘Give It Up’ – dive into the show above and be sure to look for his forthcoming ‘E-Merse’ EP.
