Interview with Michael Marcagi

Update: 2024-06-06


We had the pleasure of interviewing Michael Marcagi over Zoom video!

Singer, songwriter, and storyteller Michael Marcagi releases a new version of his breakthrough hit “Scared to Start” featuring Joy Oladokun via Warner Records. Oladokun contributes her trademark aching delivery which adds another emotional layer to the soaring anthem, which has just surpassed 275 million streams across platforms. It has also reached #5 on the Billboard Hot Rock & Alternative Songs  chart, #35 on the Billboard Global 200 chart, and #54 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart to date.

“She fell asleep listenin' to my friends, talkin' on and on about how the world ends," Marcagi sings. "Then she wakes up and climbs in my front seat.” In the new version, Oladokun takes over the second verse, underscoring the song's raw lyrical imagery. “Let's lay in the dead grass, stare at the stars," she sings. "Run away and live out of cars and bars."

The update of “Scared to Start” arrives just months after Marcagi’s debut EP American Romance was released.

As an independent artist, Marcagi rapidly generated a significant buzz based purely on the strength of his songs, and his authentic, warm and honest voice. A global fan base responded to his relatable stories  that won him a record contract with Warner Records. “Scared To Start” presents Marcagi as one of the year's most important breakout artists.
