Marty Duda's artist of the week

From Nine To Noon, 10:07 am on 11 May 2016

Today Marty features the music of Marlon Williams. Marlon is the latest New Zealand musician to make it to the big time, having just made his first performance on TV's Later With Jools and scoring a spot on this year's Austin City Limits Festival. Marlon has been a fixture of the New Zealand music scene for many years, first as a member of The Unfaithful Ways, then as a duet partner with Delaney Davidson and now as a solo artist. His self-titled debut album was released in 2015 and was recorded at Ben Edwards acclaimed studio in Lyttleton. Last year, at the New Zealand Music Awards, Marlon won Best Male Solo Artist and Breakthrough Artist Of The Year. Now he's breaking through to the rest of the planet.
