R&B artist Aries Marquis returns to the forefront with his new project Salvation: The Arrival. Aries’ sophomore album, Salvation: The Arrival finds this young songwriter in a new comfort zone with himself and his musical output. Fighting the storm to make it to the clear, Marquis’ new album has the spirit of a survivor and the pulse of a warrior.

Aries message is 100% positive and completely refreshing from the opening seconds. With every song being written, produced, and arranged by Aries himself – this artist shows he truly is a one man bad, creating the sounds of an entire assembly and gospel combined. No rookie in the game, Marquis appeared on the CMJ’s Top 5 Most Added list with his 2014 album Imperfections and he’s definitely looked to climb the charts again with his latest release, Salvation: The Arrival.

“This album, Salvation: The Arrival, is my second album, following my previous album, Imperfections. This album brings me to a place in my life where the light is finally shining at the end of the tunnel, and I’m full of joy to be in a better part of my life, in contrast to where I was with my last album, Imperfections. This album shows the world that I’ve grown, learned, and I am inspired! It’s full of optimism, and inspiration for the listeners, and all of my songs are based on my life’s experiences. Every song was written, arranged, produced, and inspired by me.” – Aries Marquis
Giving is one of the great attributes about himself, and Aries Marquis loves making good music to give to the masses. Beginning an album trilogy titled “Salvation”, Marquis has decided to give the world more of his life story as he continues his music journey from his debut album, Imperfections, to the next album titled, Salvation: The Arrival. Soulful vocals, and passionate lyrics based on the true events of his life and experiences are still the foundation of the music that he makes, and he does not want to steer away from this. Going back, his album, Imperfections, started us out with him giving us a taste of what he would bring to the music world, singing and writing about some of his own flaws, while hoping and wishing to only become better in all that he does. Songs like “Love Me For Me” and “Ole Scotlandville” became songs well-received by many fans and radio stations. Aries Marquis’ Imperfections album debuted in the “Top 5 Most Added” on the Hip-Hop CMJ charts, and soon broke through the national spotlight on the CMJ charts within weeks. Aries Marquis was one of the rare artists to break through the national radio spotlight on the CMJ charts without reaching 200 radio stations; a remarkable feat for a new artist. Now with Salvation: The Arrival, Aries Marquis is seeking to go above and beyond to reach an even higher pinnacle on his musical journey, and he is equipped with the sound to accomplish it.
