Known for his effortlessly distinctive voice, his sophomore album Make Way For Love marks Marlon Williams' exponential growth as a songwriter.
 
Throughout 11 original songs, he explores new musical terrain and reveals himself in an unprecedented way in the wake of a fractured relationship.
 
While Make Way For Love draws on Marlon's own story, it captures the vagaries of relationships we've all been through: the bliss, ache, uncertainty, and bitterness.
 
Like the best breakup records, Make Way For Love doesn't shy away from heartbreak, but rather stares it in the face, and mines beauty from it.
 
Delicate and bold, tender and searing, it's a mightily personal new step. Make Way For Love was recorded with producer Noah Georgeson and his backing band, The Yarra Benders, in North California's Panoramic Studios after several weeks of pre-production in his native Lyttelton, New Zealand with regular collaborator Ben Edwards.
 
The finished result moves Marlon several paces from "country"-the genre that's been affixed to him more than any in recent years, with forays into cinematic strings, reverb, rollicking guitar and at least one quiet piano ballad, on his most expansive recorded work to date.
 
The album's penultimate track is "Nobody Gets What They Want Anymore," a duet with Aldous Harding, recorded via a late-night long distance phone call.
