Marc E. Bassy is a songwriting force in the pop-R&B space. Going in and out of label deals since the age of 20, his latest venture has seen him taken ownership of his entrepreneurial spirit and music, launching New Gold Medal, his own independent record label.
The new sense of freedom and creative drive spurred from starting your own label can be heard throughout his recent solo album, PMD. Blending classic soulful melodies, hip-hop rhythms, an underlying sense of resilience, and a few collaborators byway of blackbear, Tory Lanez, 070 Shake, Bibi Bourelly, Gio Dee, and Mozzy, the project is a testament to what is next for Bassy.
In addition to the solo album, Bassy was set to embark on a national tour that would see him bring PMD to life across North America. However, due to the ongoing coronavirus, the tour was cut short but not before bringing his vision to life in 20 cities. Relive concerts, life on the road, and going outside with these 14 photos of Bassy's 'PMD' tour.
