Marcus Singletary Lyrics Follow
Marcus Singletary is an American musician and media personality. Singletary has released many albums in a variety of genres, and has hosted radio program Far Out Flavors. His 2017 EP, Daydream Station (his first spoken-word project), consisted of original sketch comedy bits from the show.
Singletary was born in Chicago, Illinois. He began playing several instruments from an early age, and later described the era as one spent listening to oldies radio and hanging out at a record shop, seeking out vinyl by Arthur Lee and Love, Spooky Tooth, and The Animals.
A large range of styles have been apparent within Singletary's music since the beginning of his recording career. Take Me Out to the Ball Game (2008), which consisted largely of improvisational guitar solos, was compared, by critics, to legends like Jimi Hendrix, the Rocks compilation (2006) was a "recorded blues resume" containing early cuts and highlights, and Smokin' (2011) paired him with a powerhouse backing band including ex-Ekoostik Hookah bassist Cliff Starbuck and former Doobie Brothers drummer Chet McCracken. Others, including Defiance Science (2015) and Subversive Blues (2016), were displays of his talents on all instruments.
The radio program, Far Out Flavors, debuted on NBC affiliate KCAA-FM in September, 2016, with Singletary as host. He interviewed pop culture notables, play-listed tunes by such artists as Chuck Berry, The Buckinghams, and Fanny, and performed a variety of characters within sketch comedy bits that, in September, 2017, were released as the EP Daydream Station - a project self-described as influenced by Saturday Night Live, The Kentucky Fried Movie, and Weird Al Yankovic.
Singletary has been featured on such television networks as CNN and FOX, and his music has been heard on television program Chic-a-Go-Go, radio show De Rock y Freud, and elsewhere.
Far Out Flavors' theme song, "Life Was Never Better Than it is Right Now," was written and recorded by Singletary and mastered by "Big Bass" Brian Gardner at Marcussen Mastering, Hollywood, CA. During the Summer of 2017, he shared recollections from his entire life in the hour-long audio documentary, "Marcus Singletary: In His Own Words."
