Direct from his bedroom studio in Armidale in rural NSW arrives R&B, pop singer-songwriter Mars.

With his self-produced debut EP 'Stuck In Orbit' set to land at the end of February, his current single is titled 'Angel'.

"The song 'Angel' represents the dichotomy between innocence and lust. It also utilises religious symbols to convey a deeper meaning," Mars says.

"It's a catchy song; I normally have a deeper meaning to my music but this one is simply for the appreciation of wordplay, interesting harmonies, and a nice-rounded 808.

"I guess you could also say it symbolises eternal love."



Who is Mars... Marvin Palad in disguise, who sings and makes music.

I sound like... Well, it goes from Arizona Zervas to Jay Sean. Oh and I think Enrique Iglesias.

My first gig was... In a small local restaurant/ bar called The Minnie Barn.

When did you settle on your artist name? I wanted to change my name, but keep the M in it so I got Mars.

In the studio I usually... Either I have to keep quiet and put some headphones on 'cause my best ideas come at like 2am or sing for hours on end trying to get the right annunciation on a word, or just end up singing musical songs.

If I could tour with anyone... Man, it would have to be Post Malone. The guy knows how to have a fun time and I don't think I'd ever get sick of listening to his music.

Social Media... Is great for interacting, boosting self-esteem, or for looking at memes.



My favourite app at the moment... If we're counting all apps like Netflix then Netflix. 'The Office' is a great binge-watch series. I'm nearly finished though which is kinda heartbreaking.

To date, my most embarrassing moment was the time... I serenaded a girl 'I'm Yours' by Jason Mraz with a ukulele in Year 7; not a great way to become the high school stud and no, I didn't get the girl.

If you'll have me on your bill, all I ask is that the rider contains... Tacos and 7up.

The last time I saw the inside of a gym was... The other day. I'm also boxer, so I go pretty much every day, haha.

Life on the road can be... Tiring. I hate staying seated for too long, but I travel a lot so.



Do you have any phobias? Spiders! Man they are just weird and ugh; I don't wanna talk about it.

If we were coming over to your place, what would you cook us? Snags or tacos.

Would you ever partake in a reality show? Total drama island cartoon reality shows look so much more fun. If you could prank any of your friends, how are you bringing them down? Prank call! Classic.
