CD Review: Marcus Singletary Throws His Favorite Songs "In The Mix"

Singer/songwriter/guitarist Marcus Singletary is looking back on his last five years in the music industry with a 'greatest hits' release entitled "In The Mix." It takes some of his favorite performances and places them together in one area for all to enjoy.

The ten-song release starts and ends with a couple cover songs that Marcus holds close to his heart, "Proud Mary" (Creedence Clearwater Revival) and "Muleskinner Blues" (Jimmie Rodgers). But, it's his original compositions that we find the best of Marcus Singletary. He shows off his funky side with "Get The Dance Gene" and flashes back to the disco-rock of "Start Something." The southern rock of "Farmer" and heaviness of "Can It Be Real" showcases Marcus' guitar skills as well as his vocal skills. One of the highlights of the album has to be the acoustic-shuffle of "You Could Be Lucky," that feels like a missed opportunity for Lenny Kravitz.

The new album was released back in January through Aviation Records. To find out more, please visit Marcus' Facebook page at
