Marco Pavé returns home for a celebration show: "Dedicated to You."

Fresh off of a 17-city nationwide tour, Marco Pavé is more than ready to drop his debut album Welcome to GRC LND. MTV News, who covered his sold out River Kings at the Opera: Marco Pavé and Alfred Banks in Memphis, said, “Welcome to Grc Lnd is a project that is, in some ways, so specific to the city that it seems, on the surface, that it might not break through elsewhere. But, listening closely, it’s a story of struggle and progress that can be distilled down to a single, universal message: None of us can get free if all of us can’t get free.”

Drawing from his personal struggles and those around him, Marco Pavé tells the story of Memphis, from a perspective that is all too often buried by the opposition. Marco hits harder, cuts deeper and truly entertains the listener from track 1 to track 18 in a fantastic album that is certainly the next big thing to come out of Memphis, Tennessee. Come celebrate the release of Marco’s album on May 26th, 2017.

"Dedicated to You" will feature collaborations from Bridging Souls Productions, headed by Tamara Parrish and Steven Tate. There will also be an amazing light show by Wyzlights and Sound. The album features Memphis artists such as Al Kapone, Preauxx, Idaly Maceano, and Juju Bushman, so special guests are to be expected!
