L Marshall releases his free, highly anticipated project Kiss The Fire. Kiss The Fire’which is described as neither an EP nor a mixtape, shows L Marshall’s true self as an artist as he gives this project away to his fans as a gift.
It demonstrates his ability to write captivating songs most specifically I.L.Y, Live All The Way and Fire.

The track Kiss The Fire has a strong dup step sound and Gas Man has an edgy rock vibe to it while the rest of the project as a collective is almost split in two, with the first half having more rap leading to more singing and softer beats towards the end of the project. Focus brings a soulful and orchestral feel to the project making it one of the standout tracks on the project as L balances rapping and singing on the track exquisitely. Kiss The Fire shows off L Marshall’s skills as the versatile artist he is with this exciting project.

Resolution is a true masterpiece of music centered around a backbone of R&B which has been synonymous with the US for decades.
Attempting to break that trend and putting his own unique spin on fusing a multitude of genres and sounds from Pop to Dubstep, R&B to Hip-Hop, Seyi hones in on his influences of Usher, Dru Hill, Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder and Luther Vandross and his background as a gospel artist, to produce an EP which could happily sit alongside both the US R&B heavyweights and the UK Pop superstars of today.
Not only is his voice alone something worthy to pay attention to, his ability to story tell is captivating, exemplified in ‘She will Never Know’ and mastering an immaculate example of word play in ‘Instrumental’.
‘How Do You Feel’ featuring super talented rapper Chief Wakil from the US has an upbeat tempo with Hip-Hop tones that show yet another layer of this multi-faceted artist
