In a Rolling Stone story dated April 30, 2012, writer Dan Hyman wrote about The Queen Extravaganza, a much-buzzed-about touring project launched by legendary Queen drummer Roger Taylor and guitarist Brian May. This is an excerpt from that article:

On a recent afternoon in Toronto, Queen's Roger Taylor was checking out rehearsals for Queen Extravaganza--a 25 date tribute tour with a lineup hand-selected by him and his bandmate, Brian May--when singer Marc Martel belted out a few notes from "Bohemian Rhapsody," stopping the 62-year-old drummer in his tracks. "It was as if Freddie (Mercury) was in the room," Taylor said today during a conference call with journalists. "It was uncanny."

A Nashville resident, Martel landed the gig after submitting a video of himself singing the 1976 Queen classic, "Somebody To Love." The clip was posted online and immediately went viral, amassing more than a million YouTube views within a few short days. That led to a live audition for Taylor at 606, the Northridge, CA-based studio owned by Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl. For Martel, who spent years recording and touring as the vocalist and primary songwriter for Downhere, an award-winning Canadian rock band with a sound, style and fanbase all its own, the success of The Extravaganza came with a catch. The project helped introduce Martel's talents to millions of people, but he's now known more for his uncanny resemblance to Freddie Mercury--one of rock's most iconic vocalists--than he is for his own music.

That changes with the release of Martel’s first full-length solo album, Impersonator--a fuller view of who he is as a man, a songwriter, and a musician. Inspired by diverse genres, the songs on Impersonator were all written or co-written by Martel, blending elements of rock, jazz and pop to thrilling effect. Recorded in Los Angeles and produced by John Fields, the album showcases Martel's artistic range and versatility. He possesses the kind of voice that comes along once in a generation, an uncanny instrument that gives each song unique life and emotion. Don’t miss Marc Martel May 9 at The Club at Stage AE!
