“There's no leaving the Bay Area, no matter how far away you might move, if you grew up in Oakland, you take it with you,” says Adrian Marcel. The city boasts a proud musical legacy including Sly Stone, MC Hammer, En Vogue, Toni Tony Tone, Too $hort Tupac Shakur, Pete Escovito, Sheila E and countless others. Adrian Marcel picks up the torch for Oakland and timeless R&B on his debut mixtape, 7 Days of Weak. Executive produced and hosted by fellow East Oakland native, modern soul trailblazer and multiplatinum producer Raphael Saadiq. 7 Days of Weak is a true urban contemporary collective of songs. A fusion of traditional R&B, hip-hop, turf and soul music blended together with beautiful melodies and detailed storylines that paint a vivid picture of young man in his early 20's overwhelmed by the realities of love.

Marcel knew he wanted to sing at a young age. He studied music incessantly, learning as much as he could while receiving formal training as a child. His career started to take off as he started to perform locally. With his impressive vocal range and stage swagger, he was immediately compared to Chico DeBarge and Al B! Sure. Marcel accepts the comparisons while remaining true to his own lane. El Seven Recordings and Republic Records saw the talent and truth in his music, which led to his signing in early 2013.

On his debut single Waiting, he slides from a fluttering falsetto into a bluesy hook as synths pulsate below. It's a formidable introduction into 7 Days of Weak and Marcel’s musical gifts. Currently residing in Atlanta, Marcel is bringing the spotlight back to his beloved Oakland and R&B music.
