Biography

Raised by a single mother in Inglewood California studied music under the tutelage of Vernon Clifford Brown performed with members "Taste of honey" at 17 and went on tour to Hawaii, Japan, Korea and Alaska and the illusion islands. I have performed in my own band in top Hollywood clubs and Las Vegas then worked as a soloist for the three major cruise lines 7 contracts over 5 years traveling the world. My influences from other cultures reflects in my music I have always loved great lyricist and vocalist who could make you feel the words Ray Charles, Bob Dylan, Fiona Apple. As a guitarist I always aspired to these who used the instrument to bend your mind with their note choices Hendrix, Early Jimmy page David Gilmore and funky players like prince and Robert Johnson. With the addition of Linda Lee a mezzo soprano and keyboardist my music is evolving as I now incorporate her voice into my new songs and when we cover other artist tunes there are no limitations. We can perform with my own virtual accompaniment and different rhythm sections and even orchestras. The axis was always to have the vocal harmonies consistent and Linda Lee and I have a beautiful blend.

Forever in my dreams

Written By: Marc Livingood

For ever in my dreams
Lyrics

Searching my life for love what does it mean baby
To see you standing by my side through the darkest hours of my life
You were sent to me like an angel floating with the breeze
Eyes that shine like diamonds, lips as sweet as wine
Why did you have to leave? You’re only a faded memory
Of what my life could be without you here with me
For ever in my dreams, for ever in my life
We go flying on together through the darkest nights
They will shine for us for ever in my heart
We go on and on together to see the mourning stars
Walking the valley all alone
Trying to find my home trying to find my strength
The strength to carry on
With out you by my side to warm me in the night
I kept my fire burning strong
My search goes on and on
Forever in my dreams for ever in my life
We go flying on together through the darkest nights
It will shine for us forever in my heart
We go on and on together to see the mourning stars
As the world goes by the people I know are changing
My change as just begun
Time will find us all, where did I go wrong?
I’m so confused with out you I just can’t loose!
For ever in my dreams forever in my life
We go flying on together through the darkest nights
It will shine for us forever in my heart
We go on and on together to reach the mourning stars
Forever!
Forever!
For ever in my dreams


Beautiful day

Written By: Marc Livingood

Beautiful Day

Remember when you looked at me with those sun filled eyes yesterday
It seems as though with graceful ease you stole my heart from me with out a key
When I leave from this exceeding dream will you cry for me or just be free?
But I know we are going far
And I know timeless as we are
But I know if we never find the way
Oh lord it’s a beautiful day!
And when I see the purple moon glimmering in your smile it makes me sing
I often wander what you feel what you look at me with disbelief
Why doesn’t life wait for me it goes on and on carelessly?
But I know we are going far
And I know timeless as we are
But I know if we never find the way
Oh load it’s a beautiful day
IM gonna find my way back home
Aint no one ever gonna find me there
IM gonna find my home IM gonna find my place in the sun
IM gonna play my heart I’m gonna give it all away

Echo of you

Echo of you
(Lyrics)

If I never told you how I feel it doesn’t mean you weren’t on my mind
If I never had the time to give you mean every thing to me
If you want to think about the way it used to be you’ll find what you need in me
I never had the chance to buy you anything all that I bring is love
Every day I see my reflection coming to get me coming to get me He says where are you going? You’re leading me nowhere
I wanna fly away but I got no where to fly to
The echo of you I can feel it in my heart I can hear it in my mind
The echo of you Harmonies and memories melodies of time
IM on top of the world I always knew I’d end up this way
IM on a journey through all space and time ready to leave this body behind
I must give thanks for all that I have so the universe will be kind to me
As we travel on through this life friends together for eternity
Everyday I see my reflection coming to get me
He says where are you going? You’re leading me nowhere
I wanna fly away but I got nowhere to fly to
The echo of you I can fell it in my heart I can hear it in my mind
The echo of you harmonies and memories melodies of time
Every where I go I’m haunted by the sound
Of ringing in my halls and whispering on the phone
The echo of you I can feel it in my heart I can hear it in my mind
The echo of you harmonies and memories melodies of time

Big shake down

Written By: Livingood

BIG SHAKE DOWN

Are you ready for the big shake down? Are you ready for the big shake down?
They’re waiting here in silence you can see it in they’re eyes are you ready?
Fifteen days and seven long years we’ve been lead astray
And well drop our bombs to keep us safe and strong, are you ready?
Are you ready for the big shake down? Are you ready for the big shake down?
There’s a camera on every corner watching over you, are you ready?
Orange turns to red fear pumped in our heads
You better pray like me or you’ll be dead, are you ready?
Are you ready for the big shake down? Are you ready for the big shake down?
You know there armed and ready coming after you are you ready?

That is why

Written By: Livingood

THAT IS WHY

Come on in and pour yourself a drink just relax this is not what it seems
I don’t want to think about tomorrow today
Tomorrows much to long my dreams might fade away
I just want to hold you for awhile take sometime to feel you from inside
If tonight is all that we will share together
IN the mourning you will see that are love is meant to be
I’M not gonna be this strong forever
I’M not gonna pretend it’s just a dream
I’m not gonna be this strong for ever
Cuz even in my dreams you’re far from me
Missing you it justifies all the love that I feel inside
And that is why-
Come on in and let your hair hang down the waters warm don’t make a sound
Just let my loving arms surround you
With your body close to mine as I hold you from behind
I’m not gonna be this strong for ever
I’m not gonna pretend it’s just a dream
I’m not gonna be this strong forever
Cuz even in my dreams you’re far from me
Missing you it justifies all this love
That I feel inside and that is why
Well I’ll just sit right here all alone gazing at my hotel walls
And I’ll just sit and stare into the T.V screen but nothings on and that is why
That is why, can you feel what I feel can you feel-
Oh and that is why

Believe in me

Written By: Livingood

BELIEVE IN ME

She works hard to bring home her hard earned pay at night with three young children lying in there beds she sings them to sleep and kisses them on the head
But she always finds her time to please making love by the light of a color T.V screen
If you want to believe in something
If you want to believe in something, believe in me
All my days to find the queen of all my dreams I have no more to give to you
Is this love or something new?
All of my life I looked for the love but it was in my song
She has her man by her side I have a woman who is satisfied
If you want to believe in something
If you want to believe in something, believe in me
Every day and night I sit alone with you girl
Sharing our hopes and making memories I have my queen and she’s here with me
Every day I find I’ve fallen in love again
Money is not the answer you see unlock your heart and set your spirit free
If you want to believe in something
If you want to believe in something believe in me

Together we are free

Written By: Livingood

TOGETHER WE ARE FREE

Shadows need the white light as the sun needs the shade
Darkness is never ending and the light divides our day
In the darkness you can see what you’ve wanted to be
You can reach for the highest stars
Alone you are lost in a world of dreams you are bound by what you can’t see
The eye inside your mind will never see
Together we are free
Loneliness will guide you through the trials of your life
Will you ever find love in a world without light?
In the darkness you can see what you’ve wanted to be you can reach for the highest stars
Alone you are lost in a world of dreams you are bound by what you can’t see
The eye inside your mind can never see
Blinded by the hatred that you breed
Waiting for the summer rain to fall, over me
Together we are free
Praying for the people not just ours but all!

I wanna live forever

Written By: Livingood

I wanna live forever

All of my life, I’ve wanted to know what love is
And all of my dreams are filled with memories of bliss
And then we waste away are years disappear
They old face in the mirror isn’t clear
All I ever wanted was to see the sun shinning down
All I ever wanted was to see the sun one last time

I wanna live forever (Dreams will never die)
I wanna live forever (Dreams will never die)
I wanna see the future
I wanna know what’s to come
I’ve traveled so far I’ve lived in foreign lands
I’ve walked on mountains and burning sands
I’ve swam in the oceans and laughed in the rain
I don’t understand why this has to end
All I ever wanted was to see the sun shining down
All I ever wanted was to see the sun one last time
I wanna live forever (Dreams will never die)
I wanna live forever (Dreams will never die)
I wanna see the future
I wanna know what’s to come
(spoken) And we walked hand and hand through the heavens and the whole world was filled with the sound of a million guitars
I wanna live forever (Dreams will never die)
I wanna live forever (Dreams will never die)
I wanna see the future
I wanna know what’s to come!
