Fusing together meaningful honest lyrics with soulful melodies, Canadian born, Los Angeles based singer/songwriter Marc Robillard creates his own unique blend of sonic artistry. He cites Coldplay and Death Cab as music influences; but there are so many delicious inferences woven into his raspy voice that is oh, so seductive. Robillard has a knack connecting his bright side of the road songs to alt-pop confections that are hook laden without sounding crushingly commercial. There’s an audience for his laid back style and it is just a matter of time before one of his songs hits the mainstream in a very big way.
With the release of his long-awaited sophomore album “Left London”, Robillard gives listeners a collection of new tunes that hold a fuller, more elaborate sound while still maintaining his sincere, intimate perspective. Inspired by his time spent in London and his subsequent journey to Los Angeles, “Left London” is a raw statement from Robillard that showcases the alt-singer/songwriter’s powerfully emotive voice and poetic lyrical depth. The album features Robillard’s penchant for hook-driven melodies that fit seamlessly with the singer’s captivating tone.
Robillard also achieved commercial success with several of his songs. “So Much More” was featured in Frito Lay’s green television commercial for a biodegradable Sunchips bag and garnered significant attention from viewers around the globe. His song, “Unfold” off of “Left London” was chosen to air during an episode of ABC’s primetime hit cop drama Rookie Blue. His music has been featured on MTV’s hit shows the Jersey Shore, Teen Mom, Caged, Plain Jane, I used to be fat, Savage U, UK’s hit teen drama Skins, Nickelodeon’s Degrassi, VH1’s the TO show.
