Trenton, NJ | View Website
Epoch Failure is a NJ urban pop duo, resulting from the collaborative efforts of singer/producer Billy Joe Marrero and rapper Nick Young. Their debut EP was mixed and co-produced by Grammy-nominated producer Billy Hume (Lil’ Jon, Ying Yang Twins, Pitbull). Epoch Failure's first single "Champion" has become a breakout sync track in the sports world. This past February, it was played during the post-game celebration of Super Bowl 50 in San Francisco. It's also been featured by The NFL Network, ESPN, Fox Sports, NASCAR, WWE, NBC Sports, NY Knicks, NY Giants, Denver Broncos, the Australian Football League, and more. The group's follow-up single was a reinvention of Bon Jovi's legendary anthem, "Livin' on a Prayer". It reached the Top 10 on Spotify's Viral 50 USA chart, which highlights the most shared and trending tracks in the country. The song was also featured by ESPN during their NFL Sunday Countdown programming throughout the NFL Playoffs and Super Bowl lead-up coverage. Upon discovering the Epoch Failure version, Bon Jovi shared the song across all their major online platforms. In addition, Jon Bon Jovi and cowriter Desmond Child have offered the following joint statement of praise: "The powerful new version of 'Livin' On A Prayer' by Epoch Failure retells the intimate story of Tommy and Gina, set in an urgent urban landscape. It captures the song's timeless message, lifting the banner of hope and faith for a whole new generation of working class heroes. Epoch Failure is a winner!" - Jon Bon Jovi & Desmond Child
