Marcus Words & Adam Powell

When Marcus performs as a solo artist, he plays and sings cover songs, but not what one would expect; he makes them his own. He enunciates the words, which I appreciate, especially when they are songs whose lines are not clear by the original artist, example: Big Jet Airliner by Stevie Miller, you know what I’m talking about… Words has a certain staccato to his singing, and his voice range beautifully lights up a version of Unanswered Prayers by Garth Brooks with that high-low lilt making it sound as if he wrote it, instead of Brooks. Marcus describes how he feels about cover songs on his YouTube Music channel, “I don’t think the original artists would want to hear me play their songs exactly how they played it. I assume they would want to experience their artwork through a different medium.” // Performing each week at The Encore Lakeside Grill & Sky Bar, Adam Powell plays a variety of covers with a few originals mixed in. He is a singer/songwriter with too many influences to name!
