Marchelle is the New Wave!
Written by vybedoutradio on March 11, 2020
Marchelle was born in Guam with a rare condition that causes the organs to grow outside of the body called gastroschisis. This required her emergency flight to Hawaii where doctors spent a couple of months shrinking her organs and putting them inside her body. By age 3 she moved to Bremerton, WA, a small town an hour away from Seattle by ferry boat. There she fully emerged into a family of artists. From brass players to graffiti artists, jazz singers, to ukulele payers, rappers, to ballet and tap dancers Marchelle was inspired to contribute to the world through creative expression herself. She wrote her first songs on her grandmother’s organ at 10 years old and continued to write, sing, and rap to develop her own sound. Inspired by jazz, hip hop, pop, and trap Marchelle creates honest music through intense tones and staggering melodies often using either vague lyrics or odd stories. It is tough to categorize her in a genre because she experiments across the spectrum. She rose to the top on Berners Battle App as the #1 female battle rapper under the name Remy Boyz. She then released her first album “For the Weak” in 2018, “My God” in 2019, and a number of singles under the name Marc Cris. After making the decision to go by her legal name Marchelle, she removed all of her music and will be re-releasing it as herself throughout 2020. Currently singles “Homie Boo” and “Coconut” have been released which both melt pop and hip hop together. Her style can be compared to likes of Tory Lanez, Kehlani, Doja Cat, SZA, The Weeknd, Jhene Aiko, and other urban artists.
