Marques Toliver is a renaissance man for the 21st century. The Florida born native is a virtuoso violinist, riveting vocalist, editor of Love Is The Law magazine, multi-instrumentalist, producer and model . Having been discovered busking on the streets of Brooklyn by Kyp Malone of TV On The Radio, Toliver went on to meet Chris Taylor and recorded the string parts for Grizzly Bear's 2009 album Veckatimest before moving to London the same year. Not long after he arrived, Adele took to her blog to state Marques was her "new favourite artist", which quickly led to a publishing deal with Universal and his television debut on Later With Jools Holland with a stunning solo performance of "White Sails".
There's already an Oscars buzz surrounding this movie.
