I was itching to get him in for an interview and here it is! But first, listen to 'Last Night in Lisboa' by clicking the link below!




We have an interview with the one and only Mars Valencia, a London-based Alternative R&B artist who knows how to turn pain into art.


It's a pleasure to be able to talk to you today. I've been listening to your catalogue and I've got to say, your music is exactly the kind that I think many will resonate with.


Q:Your latest release 'Last Night In Lisboa' how would you define it in one word?


A: Timestamp


Q: Your music is always reflective in narrative - I think it's always the best way to be. How do you find inspiration for your writing? Do you write to a production or do you match your writing to the music afterwards?


A: My inspiration comes from real-life relationships, this song in particular is reflective on the journey I've been on and how far I've come. I make all my beats so I have an idea for the theme of the song before I've finished, the two are done in tandem.


Q: Why music? What does music mean to you?


A: It took me awhile to accept it but I'm a creative person at heart, music has always been my calling, this feels natural to me.


Q: What do you want listeners to take away from 'Last Night in Lisboa'?


A: It's a timestamp, by the time I release the next one I'd like the listener to come back to this one and see the continued progression and how my sound has evolved.


Q: If you went back in time and told yourself one key thing that you wish you knew at the start of your music career, what would it be?


A: Don't be afraid to do what you know life's called you to do.


Q: Finishing a song is something that many artists struggle with. How do you know when your projects are finished?


A: It's a gut feeling, you know when you know. A song is never finished you can always tweak something, eventually you need to detach yourself and leave it alone or else you run the risk of ruining a masterpiece.


Q: 2023 - what's the vision looking like for you?


A: I think it's time to let people see me, I plan on performing all year, hope to see you there.
