This week’s “Heard It Through the GrapeVINE” spotlight is Marcus DeSouto ’18 from Somerset, MA. A finance and marketing double major with a music grapevineminor, DeSouto manages to balance his time at Fairfield focusing on friends, schoolwork and music. A talented and versatile musician, DeSouto likes to write his own music (and is currently working on creating the next great club beat). DeSouto also sings for the Glee Club and is a member of Fairfield’s all male A Cappella group, The Bensonians. When he is not playing music, he is listening to anything from Red Hot Chili Peppers to Kendrick Lamar. Here are his current top songs:


  1. “Blow the House Down” by Darlingside

“I like it because it’s an amazing blend of a cappella and folk.”

  1. “Never Catch Me” by Flying Lotus feat. Kendrick Lamar

“It’s a sick jazz beat with some of Kendrick’s best lyricism before ‘To Pimp A Butterfly.’”

  1. “Feeling OK” by Best Coast

“I think it’s the perfect song to go to the beach. It reminds me of going on a road trip with all of my friends.”

  1. “The Sound” by The 1975

“It’s soulful and poppy, and I really love the vibe of this song.”

  1. “Death of A Bachelor” by Panic! At the Disco

“It’s my favorite song right now. It’s a perfect mix of both Beyoncé and Sinatra, and I think it best showcases Brendon Urie’s vocal talent.”
