Biography

Marcus Alan Ward is an amalgam of reality and fantasy; traditional
and modern; spectral and visceral. With an electrically charged live
show and a handful of releases touching on influences ranging from
Psychedelic Pop, Funk, RnB, Disco and beyond, Marcus Alan Ward is the
most interesting man in Electro Soul. His work has been featured in
publications including The Fader, Pitchfork, Pigeons & Planes, Spin
and many more.  Mishka NYC blog writes, “There’s a connection between
Ward and the sheer scope of the universe that we may never understand,
but if you listen long enough it starts to make sense.”

The self-taught multi-instrumentalist and Cleveland, Ohio native released a pair of EP’s under the “Freeze-Tag” moniker (2012’s WLDFLWR_HNY and 2013’s Eskimo) and followed up with his debut full length album Last Night I Grew Tentacles
– an Electronic/Alt Rock/Soul concept album rooted in science fiction,
space exploration, and quantum physics, created by a curious young black
male. Dropping his previous moniker, the record was released via Long
Division Recordings in August of 2014 under his own name. Ward says of
the name change, “It really draws distinction to the fact that I’m a
one-man composer and that it’s just me; it’s more honest.”

Drawing
from an imagination as expansive as the universe itself, the only child
continues to create a portal into musical golden eras of the past while
bravely forging ahead into the future.
