Sup3r8 (pronounced Superb), born Carlton Marshall, is a modern American pop
music artist and producer. Based in Nashville, he is part of a family musical legacy
dating back to the historic Night Train to Nashville movement on Jefferson Street
in the mid-20 th Century. His father, Carl Marshall, was a popular R&B artist whose
classic songs and beats have been sampled by hip-hop artists like Kanye, The
Weekend and several more.
Sup3r8’s unique sound comes from his lifelong immersion in a wide array of
eclectic influences from old and new school popular music. This, coupled with his
humanitarian vision for racial and cultural unity through musical diversity is the
driving force in his life and art.
In addition to music, Sup3r8’s art crosses into fashion design. Hand-painting much
of his own wardrobe, the inspired visuals underscore his spirituality, while paying
homage to many of his heroes. His art is his life and his life is his art.
