If you were looking for an authentic one, tell it like it’s a country music storyteller and you haven’t heard it kendell wonder, It’s time to get on that train because Marvel is as real as it gets.
Each song the southern Illinois native has released touches on a different emotion, and it’s pure country music and southern rock to the core, and his latest single with Chris Stapleton, “Don’t tell me how to drink” is a prime example and great life lesson about never daring an old pro to drink in a bar.
The man has officially released his third studio album, come sunshine today.
Produced by Beau Bedford and executive producer of Marvel himself at Dallas’ Modern Electronic Sound Recorders, the record illustrates every inspiration and life lesson he has gleaned over the 51 years of his life.
Marvel shared their enthusiasm for the new release and everything that went into putting this album together:
“I’m 51 years old, which means I’m well past the point of caring for anyone. I only tell the stories I want to tell. I like working with people who are different from me. Working with Beau Bedford in Dallas meant I was playing with people I had never met before.
People who had different ideas, different sounds and different ways of playing than my friends back home. We recorded the album live and finished it in four days. This is how you capture magic. The same goes for the people I write with.
I prefer left-wing people – people from different backgrounds and different genres. Devon Gilfillian comes from the R&B world; he hears different melodies than me. Waylon is a gay man, so he has some experiences that are different from mine.
I love being around people like that and sitting in the writing room with someone who isn’t like me. Because that’s how you capture magic.”
The album also includes songwriting features from some impressive names such as Stapleton, Dean Alexander, Al Anderson, Dan Auerbach, Nick Bockrath, Kolby Cooper, Josh Morningstar, Waylon Payne, Mickey Raphael and Dee White.
Here are a few of my favorites:
“Don’t tell me how to drink”
“Hell Destined for Hard Times”
“From my memory”
