MARVIN SEASE, the South Carolina-born singer who released his last album in 2008, has died after reportedly losing his battle with pneumonia, according to Variety. Sease initially began his career in gospel and formed a group with his three brothers. He later abandoned the genre and moved into R&B, releasing a self-titled album on his own ‘Early’ label. The record included the hit track ‘Ghetto Man’ and its success led to Sease being signed by London/Mercury in 1987 and the album being re-released. The new version included a 10-minute track entitled ‘Candy Licker’, which became Sease’s signature song. The track was a smash-hit and the singer eventually took the title as his own nickname.
Despite never being a consistent presence in the charts, Sease became a cult figure on the soul and funk circuit and he recorded close to 20 albums on labels including Mercury, Jive and Silvertone. His sound was often compared to the likes of Johnny Taylor and Tyrone Davis’.
