Mark Pelli You Changed Me

Based between Los Angeles and Toronto, Canadian multi-instrumentalist, singer and producer Mark Pelli has shared the visuals for his latest single “You Changed Me”. Co-founder for the critically acclaimed Canadian reggae-pop-fusion group MAGIC!, Pelli wrote the earworm vocal hook for their hit single “Rude” which achieved #1 status on US Billboard charts for 6 consecutive weeks and also hit #1 in many other countries around the world, gaining the band and Pelli himself a Juno Award for Breakthrough Group of The Year. Mark Pelli has also performed with legendary songwriter Stevie Wonder in the south of France at a coliseum while on tour with fellow soul artist and vocalist Justin Nozuka.

As well as being a prolific and experienced songwriter, Mark Pelli is also notable producer and engineer, and has produced records and tracks for many top artists including Usher, J Cole, Chris Brown, Shakira, Anthony Hamilton, Trey Songz, Sabrina Claudio, JoJo, Marsha Ambrosius, Jennifer Lopez, Classified, the legendary Diane Warren and many, many more. These credits include co-writing the 2012 hit single “Don’t Judge Me” by Chris Brown, co-writing “Inner Ninja” with Canadian hip-hop artist Classified ft. David Myles in 2013 and co-producing American rapper J Cole’s first album single “Kevin’s Heart” on his 2018 LP, “KOD”.

Born into a musical family in Toronto, picking up a piano at just age six, Pelli takes inspiration by nostalgic motown and soul artists Sam Cooke and Smokey Robinson, to more modernized contemporary RnB or pop artist Leon Bridges – Pelli’s wonderfully unique sound could be more comparable to singer-songwriters such as John Mayer and Ben Howard.

Mark Pelli’s latest single “You Changed Me” sparks open with guitar harmonics, and Pelli’s subtle, yet velvetine voice whirls around full, deep bass lines, ‘60s inspired percussive techniques, hypnotically fixed organs and of course, a skillfully polished guitar solo to set the mood, and dim the lights for the rest of this refreshing, relaxing experience.

On his latest single, Mark Pelli says “This is a bitter sweet song about love and confusion. It’s written in a classic style – I was very much influenced by the music of Sam Cooke and Smokey Robinson while writing and recording this song. I attempted to make it sound retro as if it had been recorded on an analog tape machine”.
