video premiere: brian marquis “drink you up”

A tune that provides the prefect first taste of his new record…

by Christian Lavery

The music industry isn't a new place for Brian Marquis, and after some time off the road, we're glad he's back and performing as a solo artist.

Brian recently released his debut solo record titled Blood and Spirits and his song "Drink You Up" is the perfect first taste for the record. He has concocted his own brand of folk he likes to call "whiskey folk" which is ever so fitting for this single. You can feel his honesty and raw emotion pour out over his guitar--truly awesome.

We caught up with Brian and he wanted to give you all the inside scoop on what this song means:

"'Drink You Up" is a love song about recognizing the baggage we all carry once we've been through a few relationships in life, and still finding that fire to give your all, your love, so intensely to another human being that you almost want to consume them to become one."

Mr. Marquis is currently out on the Vans Warped tour, so make sure to swing by the Acoustic Basement tent and check him out! Don't forget to keep up with him on Facebook HERE and Twitter HERE.
