The Canadian began his musical career in his homeland, in the province of Saskatchewan. With his crossover band "Downhere", which is situated between rock and gospel, he released seven studio albums from 2001. The singer caused a sensation in 2011 when he heard about Roger Taylor's plan to form a Queen tribute band. Martell recorded solo cover versions of "Bohemian Rhapsody" and "Somebody To Love" and his home videos not only reached more than 30 million views within a short time. Thanks to his voice, he was also the most sought-after Freddie double in the world. He appeared on "The American Idol" with Roger Taylor and Brian May, toured for years on Taylor's cover show "The Queen Extravaganza" through North America, Europe and Australia, and in between he sang every now and then as a show act at NFL games.
In the meantime, Marc Martel is playing the stages of the world with "A Vision of Queen". On 22 September 2024, he will also come to the Olympic Hall. Visually portraying a Freddie copy is something the singer consistently refuses to do. "I don't want to wear a fake moustache or a yellow jacket. I want to be myself." Good thing. Martel simply lets his voice do the talking.
