Marlon is taking to the stage to launch his latest track, ‘Blood in the Water’ on the 17th of February.  

Written in protest to many of the injustices that indigenous Australians feel in modern society, and how many who live in privileged positions tend to ignore and avoid these issues. 

“‘Blood in the Water’ is a record written in reflection of the reality in the Australian society when it comes to the mistreatment of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. It represents the mentality that we as a country hold, knowing of the injustices that takes place towards people of colour, yet many of us are content to live on in our day to day lives as if these injustices are non-existent.”


Marlon has had an incredible career thus far, spanning across multiple industries. Initially a professional AFL player for Port Adelaide between 2008-2011, Marlon moved onto a music career during his final year in 2011. Since then he has supported the likes of Midnight Oil, A.B.Original, Pete Murray and Xavier Rudd. He has been impressing crowds across the country, playing at WOMADelaide, Bass In The Grass, Party In The Paddock, Dark Mofo, Spin Off Festival and more throughout his career. 

Marlon brings an intimacy filled with charisma and thought provoking lyrics. Marlon’s music has always been an important part of his life, a place he can reflect on his own experiences as well as those that play out around him. Born and bred in Darwin, Northern Territory, Marlon is of Aboriginal Larrakia, and Thursday Island heritage.
