“Marc Martel is a vocal doppelganger for the Queen frontman Freddie Mercury.”

NY Times

With the extraordinary success of the Oscar-nominated and record-breaking biopic Bohemian Rhapsody the timing could not be better for Queen fans to experience the incredible talent of Marc Martel.

No stranger to fronting Queen projects, Marc Martel was handpicked by Roger Taylor and Brian May to front their official Queen tribute in 2012. Martel launched his own The Ultimate Queen Celebration project in March 2017.

Now, having provided vocals for the movie Bohemian Rhapsody, completing a hugely successfully tour of New Zealand, continuing to perform to sold out concerts across the world, and creating an online sensation with his one take live recordings of Queen hits - Marc is ready to return with his band to deliver a huge rock spectacular for Queen fans.

It will be the closest you will get to hear the original Queen sound.

Don’t take our word for it, YouTube Marc Martel and be prepared to be stunned!

NY Times Article and interview


Bohemian Rhapsody producer Graham King tells Rolling Stone: “Rami Malek couldn’t replicate Mercury’s singing voice. The solution was to take recordings from Queen master tapes, with additional vocals recorded by Canadian singer Marc Martel. “Literally, you could close your eyes and it’s Freddie and that’s a very tough thing to do.”

He also tells Film Journal International: "Rami sings a little bit in the film, there's a lot of Freddie Mercury obviously, and a lot of Marc Martel. He sent a video to Brian May and Roger Taylor and he sounds exactly like Freddie Mercury. We knew that we had someone we could use for parts that maybe Rami couldn't do and obviously Freddie didn't do. So we were in Abbey Road recording studio for maybe two and a half months with Marc and with Rami, recording bits and pieces that we knew we needed. It's hard to find someone who can sing like Freddie Mercury and I'm not sure the movie would have happened if we didn't have Marc."

And Berlin's Indiekino: Rami sings and we had Marc Martel, who is a great singer who sounds just like Freddie. He came into Abbey Road (studios in London) and pre-recorded so much for us and there were points when I don’t think even Brian May could tell who it was.

This is Zettie’s tale from her birth date in 1965 through to her ‘passing’ at the age of 105. Yet, Zettie’s tale is our own tale, as humans still all-too-often hell-bent on destroying our environment and therefore our fellow creatures – and thus – symbiotically and inevitably – ourselves. More>>
