I love when I get awesome things in my email. I received Young Marco’s song “Gone Long Gone” earlier this year and immediately added it to rotation. According to Safe Horizon:
- 1 in 4 women will experience domestic violence during her lifetime.
- More than 60% of domestic violence incidents happen at home.
- Women ages 18 to 34 are at greatest risk of becoming victims of domestic violence.
“I wanted this song to have a colossal meaning to it and it actually did. I reminisced on witnessing a not so stable relationship within my team and wrote about their love. I saw the male take advantage of her love over and over to the point that she eventually started abusing herself, physically and mentally. It was not good,” says Young Marco. “Eventually she got out and as the known saying came to mind, “you won’t miss anything good until it’s gone” and that was the inspiration behind the song,” – Young Marco
Young Marco is currently in preparations to embark on his first promotional summer tour in support of his upcoming debut album, “Tell The World“. The tour will make stops in Los Angeles, Baltimore, New York, Atlanta, New Jersey and more.
