WHO IS JOHAN MARQUIS?

"YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE GREAT TO START, YOU HAVE TO START TO BE GREAT.” HARD WORK AND DEDICATION SYMBOLIZE THIS YOUNG MAN DESTINED FOR STARDOM. CRITICS SAY THE TORCH JACKSONVILLE, FL ONCE CARRIED IS NO LONGER LIT. BUT THE TYPE OF TALENT THAT HAS BEEN DISPLAYED SO EARLY IN HIS YOUNG CAREER SAYS QUITE THE OPPOSITE FOR THE FUTURE. THE YOUNG MAN THAT IS ABOUT TO CHANGE THE COMPLEXION OF HOW JACKSONVILLE IS RECEIVED IS SO EXCITED ABOUT WHAT'S AHEAD OF HIM.

BORN IN ALBANY, GA; RAISED IN JACKSONVILLE, FL; JOHAN MARQUIS COMBINES MUSIC AND MOTIVATION BRINGING LIGHT TO A DARK WORLD. "I USE TO JUST TALK ABOUT WHAT I THOUGHT WAS COOL, NOW I WANT TO TALK ABOUT ME, TALK ABOUT WHAT I KNOW, AND WHAT I HAVE BEEN THROUGH. I KNOW IT CAN HELP SOMEBODY ELSE GOING THROUGH THE SAME."

HIS SOUTHERN STYLE AND DISTINCT FLOW SEPARATES HIM FROM THE FIELD OF UP AND COMING ARTISTS. HIS PRESENCE HAS ALREADY DRAWN THE ATTENTION OF MANY, LABELING HIM A HEARTTHROB IN THE MAKING. ALL THE PROOF NEEDED TO DISPLAY THE PASSION AND PRIDE THIS 28 YEAR OLD CARRIES IS REVEALED INSIDE THE RECORDING STUDIO AND ON STAGE. THE ONLY QUESTION REMAINS IS, IS THE WORLD READY?

SEEKING A FRESH START AFTER 8 MONTHS AWAY FROM THE MUSIC SCENE, A MORE FOCUSED AND DRIVEN CEO EMERGED. ON JANUARY 1ST 2015 J. MARQUIS BEGAN BRANDING "TODAY WILL BE GREAT" FOLLOWED BY AN ENORMOUS AMOUNT OF HASHTAGS TO SHOW SUPPORT FOR THE POSITIVE MOVEMENT.(#TWBG) OVER A YEAR OF PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT AND REBRANDING BROUGHT JOHAN MARQUIS TO THE REALIZATION THAT NOTHING COULD STOP HIM FROM SUCCESS. NOT THE REGULAR LIFE DRAMA, NOT THE SET BACKS, NOTHING. WHEN YOU CHANGE THE WAY YOU THINK EVERYTHING CHANGES AND THAT IS A LIFE PHILOSOPHY HE PLANS TO SHOW THE WORLD THROUGH MUSIC AND ACTION.

JOHAN MARQUIS' MAIN DRIVE IS HIS FAMILY AND HIS FANS. ON AUGUST 19TH, 2011, JOHAN MARQUIS' BROTHER WAS KILLED IN A TRAGIC SHOOTING. ANTHONY MARQUIS HOLMES WAS ONLY 20 YEARS OLD AND WAS HIS BIGGEST FAN. "WE ALWAYS SAID WE WOULD GROW OLD TOGETHER, LIVE NEXT TO EACH OTHER AND RAISE OUR KIDS TOGETHER. WHEN I SEE HIM AGAIN I EITHER DIED TRYING OR HE HAD A PERFECT VIEW WATCHING ME MAKE IT HAPPEN!" WHENEVER YOU HEAR POWER GANG OR SEE THE ACRONYM PGOD, IT REPRESENTS THE THOUSANDS SOON TO BE MILLIONS THAT SUPPORT THE MOVEMENT AND REPRESENT IT LIKE THEIR OWN. THE POWER GANG IS A GANG OF PEOPLE WHO WANT TO SEE OTHERS WIN, KEEP GOOD VIBES, SUPPORT GOOD MUSIC, AND FLY ABOVE THE NEGATIVITY. THAT'S THE MOST POWERFUL KIND OF GANG THERE IS. “I’M JUST MAKING SURE THAT ONE DAY MY FAMILY WILL BE STRAIGHT. YES I HAVE MORE PASSION FOR MUSIC THAN ONE COULD IMAGINE, BUT I’M IN THIS TO BETTER MY SURROUNDINGS AS WELL” 

JOHAN MARQUIS EXPRESSES WHOLE-HEARTEDLY. “I ALSO WANT TO GIVE BACK TO THE COMMUNITY AND HELP THE PEOPLE LESS FORTUNATE.” GROWING UP COUNTLESS PEOPLE TOLD HIM HE WOULD AMOUNT TO NOTHING, BUT IF YOU SEE WHAT I SEE, HE HAS ALL THE RIGHT TOOLS AND THE RIGHT MINDSET TO PROSPER NOT ONLY AS AN ARTIST BUT AS A HUMAN BEING.
