Tell us your real names, country of birth, date of birth and childhood experience.

My real name is Marco Bellomo, I’m 22 from Long Island, New York.

Tell us about your music career, your band name, musical background, experience and skills.

I used to go by Just B. Polo, but now my artist name is just my name, Marcaux. I’ve been playing instruments and writing songs since I was about 8 years old. I play about 6 different instruments, write, produce, engineer, etc.

.

Tell us about your genre, concept and idea behind your music video and the song.

I’d say my genre is alternative Hip-Hop, although I’d like to branch out and do any genre I feel like doing at any given moment, not be boxed in to a specific style. The concept of ’95 was to get that cypher, live session, feel, but with a live drummer instead of just a beat.

.

.

Tell us everything that we need to know about you as a musician and the ups and downs you have faced in the music business.

I like to step out of the box, not do what’s cool now, just do what seems cool in my head. The ups and downs musically are pretty standard, nervousness, trial and error, keeping personal life and musicianship separate but also relatable.

.

.

.

Tell us about other members of your band, music producer, crew or music video director, how the song was recorded and how the music video was shot.

The drummer in the video is Jon Brick, definitely the best drummer I’ve met. It was all created by us musically, he gave me the rhythms and I tried to match the flow with it for the verses. It was shot at a studio that we grew up close to. The director was Anthony Lopardo who’s a cool dude as well, I’m excited to work with both of them again in the future.

.

Tell us how long you have been in the music industry, your experience and your future goal.

I released my first song when I was 18, of course it has ups and downs and in the long run I’m still at square one. But it’s what I love to do and when you love something you can really achieve any future goal, whatever that may actually be for me, I don’t know

.

.

Tell us what inspires you to write, compose and sing.

To me it’s really that drug high in comparison, the high you get creating the song and getting the product that you wanted, then the low you feel when you haven’t created in a while, then that you need to do it again. It really becomes addicting.

.

.

.

Tell us the secret behind making a hit song.

I don’t exactly have one yet haha, but I’d say the secret is pretty formulated. Make the song that people can connect to, but also have that replay quality.

.

.

.

Tell us the message you will like to pass to your fans out there.

Don’t care what anyone thinks but yourself. Not just for music, for anything you do. if YOU are happy with what you’re doing and not hurting anyone else in the process, then no one else opinion matters.

.

.

.

Tell the kind of advice you will give to an upcoming artist.

Probably the same advice. Don’t care what people think or what people think are cool and uncool. The greatest musicians have come from doing something that people didn’t understand at first. Force them to love your sound not the other way around.

.

.

.

Elaborate on your music careers, albums, songs, tours, recognition or awards you might have obtained.

I have an album out (‘Desensitized’) and an EP ‘Hypocrite’ coming out December 1st. I’ve done a lot of shows in 4 years and planned on doing even more in years to come. I’ve won a few awards in the past 3 years, Best New Artist at the International Music Conference, Emerging artist at Summerfest, Best HipHop Artist at Richmond Film Festival. Super thankful for all of those!

.

.

.

List Radio or TV Stations that are airing your songs and blogs that have featured you as well and send message to them via this platform.

I don’t want to call out specific radio or blogs just because I’m thankful for all of them for giving me any type of platform, that’s what it takes to get your name out there, so anytime I can get any type of recognition it means a lot to me.

.

.

.

Tell us how you write your lyrics, compose, sing and record in the studio.

Pretty much every song process goes as such: Producing is at home in my bedroom, writing can hit my head whenever (a lot of times when I’m driving), and then when I put the 2 together, then repeat, then repeat, then repeat, I like to go to the studio and record them all at the same time so the energy and sound has a similar quality, even if the song itself doesn’t.

.

.

.

Name five biggest artists that you like.

My 5 favorite artists of all time: Eminem, Justin Nozuka, Andre 3000, Pharrell and probably John Legend.

.

.

.

Name the artists you have collaborated with before in your songs or artists you are willing to collaborate with in the future if you have the chance to do so.

I’ve collaborated with so many artists in so many genres, everyone I worked with is a good person, I wouldn’t work with them if they weren’t. It’s more important that they are  friends before collaborators in any way. So as far as artists to work with in the future, it’s the same requirement. You could be the biggest artist in the world, or someone without a song out. If you are good, I’m down to work.

Tell us about your happiest day and saddest day.

The happiest day of my life hasn’t come yet, it will be when I look around and realize that everything I set out for has happened, both musically and personally. The saddest days of my life are always deaths of people important to me. But it’s important to celebrate their life instead of mourning their death.

Tell us how you will spend a million dollars.

This is such a boring answer but If someone gave me a million dollars I would probably save it, or invest it into something that makes me more millions, the standard business move haha.
