New Music Video, The First Noel EP Out Now; K-LOVE Christmas Tour Now In Full Swing
Marc Martel‘s current single, “It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas,” from his just-released The First Noel EP (Marc Martel Music), is the most added song at radio this week according to Billboard. This is a first for Martel, an intentionally independent singer, songwriter and musician. Martel is the former lead vocalist for the Canadian rock band Downhere and is globally-known for his astonishing Freddie Mercury-esque vocals and for fronting the official Queen tribute, The Queen Extravaganza, since 2011.
“It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas,” which is on Martel’s newest project The First Noel EP, can be heard on stations across the U.S., as well as on Sirius XM and K-LOVE Radio. A music video for the song is also available and can be viewed below. The First Noel EP, the second in his special solo series of Christmas music, officially released Friday, Nov. 24 and is available at MarcMartelMusic.com, Amazon, iTunes, and at all of his shows during the holiday season.
Martel is sharing some of his favorite Christmas songs on the K-LOVE Christmas Tour, which just kicked off this past weekend. Now in its 6th year, the 19-city tour will wrap at New York City’s historic Beacon Theatre Sunday, December 17. Martel appears alongside fellow artists Steven Curtis Chapman, Plumb, and We Are Messengers on the tour.

ABOUT MARC MARTEL: Martel spent years recording and touring as co-lead vocalist and songwriter for Downhere, an award-winning Canadian rock band with a sound, style and fanbase all its own. In 2011, Martel was hand-selected by members of the legendary rock band Queen, Brian May and Roger Taylor, to front their official tribute The Queen Extravaganza, which he continues to front to this day.
Martel’s videos have been viewed more than 33 million times on YouTube and Facebook, and he’s performed on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” “American Idol,” PeopleNow for People Magazine online, with the Philharmonic Orchestra of Mexico City, at the Kentucky Derby, and for numerous pro sports teams. Just last year he performed for Céline Dion, by her request, on Radio-Canada TV’s “En direct de I’Universe.”
In September of 2014, Martel released his first full-length solo album, Impersonator, a fuller view of who he is as a man, a songwriter, and a musician. “The album’s title is blatantly tongue-in-cheek because it encompasses more of who I am personally and musically than anything I’ve ever released, and that is a great feeling,” Martel shares. “I always want to keep coming back to writing and performing my own music. Nothing else is quite as fulfilling.” Earlier this year he recorded at London’s legendary Abbey Road Studios for an upcoming project, slated to release in 2018.
