We had an opportunity to head to The Horseshoe Tavern to catch Marlon Chaplin, a Toronto based musician that we’ve been hearing a lot about as of late.
Performing songs off of his EP Wanderer By Trade, Marlon and his band had us all energized by his unique but familiar vibe. With a classic feel to his rock and folk sound, Marlon will reach a wide base of fans. Sometimes you get a 50’s or 60’s rock feel, to a current take on modern folk rock. With upbeat catchy tunes like In Stars, to beautifully reflective songs like Fossils, he shows his versatility and song writing abilities.
Marlon and the band are hitting up The Drake Hotel Underground on February 3rd, and it is definitely a show to catch. Pick up his EP Wanderer By Trade now and keep an eye and ear out for this guy. Another quality Canadian talent.
