Acoustic feel good music is something we can all relate to, and American born singer-songwriter Marcus Lee has this in abundance. The California artist has always had a love for writing and performing, and has actually started and founded his own songwriting company which is a true dedication to his craft. Just Wish You Cared gives the nod to Dermot Kennedy and Mumford & Sons, and delivers a hugely potent recipe for a fresh and sonic sound.

Only his third release, Just Wish You Cared feels like a stepping stone to a future album release for Marcus. Also a trumpeter, he is a multi talented jazz musician who has learnt over time how to structure songs in the right format and to tailor them for his listeners, which he has certainly delivered here. Reminiscing on unrequited love and yearning for some acceptance, it’s an honest and open message on a past love, but also on Marcus’ personal journey as a man and a human being. Marcus Lee has a lot in store for 2021 and his musical journey is only just beginning.
