Chocolate Genius's Bittersweet Farewell

It's Murphy's Law that you'll discover your new favorite musician just after they announce they're giving up music, right?
Over the last decade Marc Anthony Thompson has released a series of albums under the name Chocolate Genius. His music straddles everything from alt country to experimental R&B, to pop soul. Sadly, he's just released what he says is his final album -- the aptly titled Swansongs.
But before he said goodbye for good, Chocolate Genius dropped by Studio 360 to treat us to a beautiful rendition of “Sit and Spin,” which he says is about 'the sorry state of healthcare' in America.
Chocolate Genius told Kurt about his plans for the future -- we've got their full conversation, plus more of his live performance, here.
