Music Millennium

New Zealand's Marlon Williams has quite simply got one of the most extraordinary, effortlessly distinctive voices of his generation-a fact well known to fans of his first, self-titled solo album, and his captivating live shows. An otherworldly instrument with an affecting vibrato, it's a voice that's earned repeated comparisons to the great Roy Orbison, and even briefly had Williams, in his youth, consider a career in classical singing, before realizing his temperament was more Stratocaster than Stradivarius.But it's the art of songwriting that has bedeviled the artist, and into which he has grown exponentially on his second album, Make Way For Love, out in February of 2018. It's Marlon Williams like you've never heard him before-exploring new musical terrain and revealing himself in an unprecedented way, in the wake of a fractured relationship.Like any good New Zealander, Williams doesn't boast or sugarcoat: songwriting is still not his favorite endeavor. "I mean, I find it ecstatic to finish a song," he explains. "To have done one doesn't feel like an accomplishment as much as a relief and maybe a curiosity, you know? To have come through to the other side and have something.
