Marc Anthony Figueras is a Clayton, NC based RnB/Soul singer-songwriter who just released an incredible five-song EP entitled "How Things Have Changed". This EP is a follow-up to Marc's last project "Blue" which he released in the spring of last year. In regards to who the EP is dedicated to and what it represents, Marc says:
"Around last August, an old friend of mine passed away in a car wreck. He was an incredible piano player and singer. Very sick gospel style of playing. He was definitely a big influence on my decision to continue pursuing my passion, no matter how discouraged I became. When he passed, it was completely out of nowhere, and it devastated me. Around the same time, my oldest brother was getting ready to get married, and one of my uncles was getting ready to have a baby.
I remember stopping and thinking about the past few years, specifically since I finished up high school. The last two years, compared to the previous nineteen or so, have felt like an eternity. I've never had so much happen to me in such a short amount of time.
Life moves in the strangest ways, but it always moves forward. I wanted this EP to be a reminder to never take anything we have for granted, and to always seek the beautiful things in life.
Dedicated to a good friend who moved on too soon.
Sometimes things change before we're ready for it."
