Watch the Video ‘Angels by the Ocean’ by Darius Marquis

“Angels by the Ocean” is a soul rock single by Darius Marquis. He created this song as a tribute to his grandfather and godfather who he lost just 3 months apart. The song was recorded on the same day that it was written and performed by Marquis himself. 

As a musician, he was inspired by Prince’s music. The song has a deep emotional value and stands as a testament to the power of love and loss. With its soulful lyrics and powerful beat, this song is sure to tug at your heartstrings.. 

A songwriter is expected to put their heart and soul into their music in order for it to resonate. This is evident in Marquis’ work, and “Angels by the Ocean” is no exception. The lyrics reflect on the pain of losing loved ones and the hope for their peaceful rest. Listening to the track I found the song itself to be a very moving testament to his love for them. “Angels by the Ocean” is a must-listen for anyone who has experienced the pain of loss and understands the power that music has to heal.. 

Through music like this artist is creating, we can heal just by listening. That’s how powerful good music is in our lives. So be sure to check out his other singles and albums, and let the music support you by resonating with your journey and struggles.
