Steve Marshall: Mirage (EP) (State Of Emergency Records, 1998)

Formally featured on Street Beats Series 2 Volume 10 with his cover of Bill Withers’ “Ain’t No Sunshine”, Marshall believed that the industry didn’t give much “time and space” to UK male R&B singers unless you “knew the right person” but his debut EP was somewhat different to your average Lemars and Craig Davids with raw blues and soul appeal and smooth vocals. There is not much information about him, but the EP got a glowing review in an April 1998 edition of UK dance music magazine Muzik where it was described as “uplifting and full of the whole range of ingredients” and “Good home-grown talent that's more than worthy.”
