LISTEN TO MARQUES TOLIVER ON NPR’s WORLD CAFÉ DEBUT EP Butterflies Are Not Free TO BE RELEASED ON 12″ VINYL SEPTEMBER 13TH

By on September 3, 2011
The four songs on Toliver’s debut EP, Butterflies Are Not Free, burst with passionate songwriting in the style of what he calls “bohemian noir.” In this self-appointed genre, Toliver’s vocals brim with rich, emotional tones that hover above his careful string arrangements.”

Marques Toliver had the honor of stopping by NPR’s World Café with David Dye yesterday, where he performed some of his material, and took part in an engaging interview about his early days in New York and London busking in the subway and off the Bedford Ave L stop where he met and eventually began collaborating and touring with musicians like Grizzly Bear, Holly Miranda, and TV on The Radio among others. He explains the inspiration behind his music, which he calls “Bohemian Noir” drawing upon his classical training as a violinist as well as the writings of individuals such as Frederick Douglass and the author Garth Nix.
