Her subsequent single, “Porcelain Doll” was released in February 2018. Marcella has since performed at several historic Nashville clubs, including Belcourt Taps, The Local and The End.
Marcella thrives on the presentation of her music and the message it sends. “Whether I’m going through something and need to process it through music or someone else hears my music and can relate to it - allowing them to realize they aren’t alone - I want my music to make an impact.”
