London-born, Caribbean-raised singer-songwriter Marlon Roudette is the son of music producer Cameron McVey (Massive Attack, All Saints, Sugababes) and the stepson of singer Neneh Cherry. He lived in London with his mother, designer Vonnie Roudette, until the age of nine when he moved to St. Vincent. Roudette returned to London when he was 17 and as one-half of Mattafix, along with his friend Preetesh Hirji, he enjoyed some success. You might recall their single "Big City Life
," which was an international hit topping the charts in Austria, Germany, Italy, New Zealand, Poland and Switzerland. However the band lost their record deal and they were forced to break up meaning Roudette had to go solo.
