Bio


As a native of the Bluegrass State, Louisville, Kentucky, Marcus grew up with aspirations of becoming a pro football player, but his goals changed after having committed over 10+ years of his young life to the U.S. Navy. During this time, his love for jazz grew by listening and learning from the late Grover Washington, Jr., David Sanborn, Kirk Whalum, Najee, Dave Koz, the late saxophonists, Art Porter and George Howard. Marcus says on one account,” I became truly inspired by a phone call from the late George Howard. A conversation and experience I’ll never forget.” Marcus would find his way before Rebbie Jackson (a Sister of Jackson 5) and her family during a weekend show in Las Vegas.

Since then, Marcus has continued to travel and also perform locally in Jacksonville, Florida. To name a few notable events, Marcus performed for the Convoy of Hope, a Superbowl & NFL Sponsored Event. He has even opened up for Miles Jaye, R&B Artist. Notably, Marcus was the headliner for the Lincoln Foundation’s 19th Annual Night of Jazz Concert at the Kentucky Center for the Performing Arts, located in Louisville, Ky (2014).

Notably in July 2016, Marcus performed at the Derby City Jazz Festival in Louisville, Ky, which also featured jazz greats, Jeff Lorber, Mike Phillips, Brian Bromberg, Marion Meadows, Everett Harp, Jeff Bradshaw, Cindy Bradley, Marcus Johnson and The Urban Jazz Coalition, just to name a few.  Recently, Marcus performed at the 2018 Jazz in Central Park (Louisville, Ky on August 26, 2018) and the Seafood & Jazz Festival in Jacksonville, FL to kick of the inaugural jazz festival on May 25, 2018 and at The Foundry, July 22nd in Athens, GA.

Marcus also received encouragement from famed percussionist Sheila E. and saxophonists, Nelson Rangell, Najee, Mike Phillips, his sax mentors: Joe Yorio (Toured with Peabo Bryson) & Mel Holder (Billboard Saxophonist & Sellar Award Finalist), and the late great saxman, George Howard.

Marcus is set for a global release of his new single “Brand New Day”, which was written and produced by jazz sensation, International Recording Artist/keyboardist, Jonathan Fritzen, whom also performs on the single. This song will keep you locked in for more of Marcus’s music. Brand New Day released June 25th globally and to radio stations across the United States. It debuted with most adds and spins its 1st week on Billboard radio stations and charted in Smooth Jazz Network Top 100 and other jazz charts already this year. Song Label: Twin Records.

As Marcus continues to perform, along with recording his next musical project, which is slated to be released in 2019, a solid host of musicians, artists and producers have collaborated to deliver a fresh new hot collection of neo-soul/urban smooth jazz music that compliments Marcus at a whole new level.
