Feel Good Music Group Recording artist Marcell “Talent” Cassanova is a multi-talented and versatile Singer, Producer, & Songwriter.
Born in Atlanta and raised in Houston, Texas, music has been a part of his everyday life. At the age of 16, he began writing songs that would be featured on major commercial releases. He chased his music passion to college and before long was fully immersed in the art of music, performing solely under the alias “Talent”. Through local networking, he was introduced to other aspiring recording artists and after several more years of actively recording, he made his official solo debut with “Hidden Talents”, under KMJ Records. Shortly after, he collaborated in a group called MLM and released their first single, “When We Swang” ft. Houston rnb/hip hop legend Billy Cook.
In 2019 he made the official transition to “Marcell Cassanova”, and released his debut project in the southern soul genre under the alias entitled ‘Southern Love’. The lead single "Country", which features appearances by New Cupid and Jeter Jones, rapidly gained undeniable momentum. The hit single earned Marcell 3 ZBT Award nominations in 2019, and 2020 ZBT Award for Best Collaboration. DJs and listeners have given it the thumbs up, and accompanied by its award winning line dance choreography, it’s on its way to leaving a huge impact in its genre.
Marcell followed up with Southern Love 2. The 10 song project, which released on Valentines day 2020, features the grooves “Rock With Me” and “Mr. Right”, co-written by Charles 'Kizzo' Kizzee, along with the high energy, DJ favorite, “Overtime” written by Kizzo and produced by Christyle Trakz. Accompanied by a growing line dance of its own, "Rock With Me" is following in the footsteps of “Country”, as it is nominated for a Blues Award, and two Jackson Music Awards, Best Recording by a Single Artist and Record of the Year. The sequel project is already getting strong reviews and on pace to surpass its predecessor.
Riding the momentum, the new Southern Soul phenom came with his first collaborative effort on the Feel Good Music Group label, super group Soul Southern and their debut album ‘Soul Out’. The project made a major splash with “Trail Ride (Blueprint Mix)” ft. Itz Karma, Johnny James and RnB Pooh. The album also features the latest fan favorite, Marcell lead single “Quit My Job”. This future southern soul classic is a highlight of the artist’s live performance.
