Marcell is one of Indonesia’s premier Pop R&B singer whose big break came in the early 2000’s by way of a duet with Shanty in a single title “Hanya Memuji”. Marcell himself was already well known before the duet came, but it was served as the catalyst he needed to further catapult his brand of soulful crooning on the masses.
Marcell is heavily influenced by jazz and soul artists, thanks to his late grandfather who introduced Marcell to the music of artists like Nat King Cole, Frank Sinatra, Benny Goodman, Sarah Vaughan, Salena Jones and Count Basie. It was also his grandfather who is responsible for Marcell’s knowledge of more modern pop singers like Celine Dion and Gloria Estefan.
Whether he’s on stage singing through the mic or flailing away at the drums, Marcell is an will be one of Indonesia’s top flight artist for years to come.
