Portrait – Beautiful Stranger

 

My name is Portrait and I have been singing all of my life! I originated from a Gospel group called “The Smith Five” which consisted of my 2 brothers and my 2 sisters. We started singing at ages 4 and song all over up until High School. From there, One of my sisters and I formed a group called “Total Package” along with a childhood friend. We also sang for many years until life lead us separate ways.

My music is my passion and every word, every beat and every moment of it means everything to me. Without passion, music can not come alive and move from heart to heart. So as others listen to my music, I hope that their “Portrait” experience connects with some part of their own lives as we all strive to find our voice in this place called Life.

The colossal contrast between calm and mayhem.” A cathartic cradle song to observe, a melancholy piano goes with Mars rich vocals.

The excellence of this multi-instrumentalist’s abilities feel naturally connected to his wide vocal range. Opening verses on track one in a flash spellbind. Here, there is a charged climate which passages the audience, stopping time and inciting recollections. Opening the five track release with ‘Place’, the tune which offered ascend to the EPs origination more than two years prior, London maker Aston Rudi has been instrumental in molding the music which would take after. Topics of deserting and loneliness run simultaneously all through, ‘Love Outro’ has roots in the tragic predicament of the refugees Mar felt influenced by, secured every day by the media.

Refering to his most prominent melodic impacts as Bjork and Prince, Mar has grabbed the open doors given by this EP to advance a new way to deal with his sound. Blemish’s melodic range has advanced from layered electronic to pop, contorted trap and rock music, by means of past releases ‘Seeing Her Naked’, ‘Form’ and ‘When We Meet’.
Accepting full creative accountability for his vision, the philosophical creative has crafted an ambitious live audio visual show, which will create a journey like an exploration of his audience’s innermost feelings. Editing this latest visual body of work with in-house art director Tobi Balogun, each and every facet of Mar’s art is deeply personal, revealing the most intimate parts of himself. All of this is done in the name of promoting his manifesto, love.

‘Things Will Be’ is a soundtrack to encounter when one is separated from everyone else. Relieving and rich, similar to a glass of red wine, Mar oozes an easily supernatural feeling of being. Press play and discover your tranquility.
