Biography

MarQell is a young energetic sign that R & B is taking a turn, no longer regulated to the boundaries of New York, Atlanta, and Los Angeles. R & B is alive and kickin’ it in mainstream America. With artists like Beyonce, Jaime Fox, and Erika Badu fresh out of Hip-Hop’s latest discovery; Texas. MarQell stands ready to deliver his own brand of soul.
From his beginnings in Dallas, Texas; MarQell, born into a musical family, began playing piano at age five. By his eighth birthday, MarQell was already playing in his fathers band. He then spent his early teens honing and expanding his passion for music first as a DJ, and then as a singer in his first group “Rebel Bass”, who were the hottest act at local talent shows, and house parties.
With his roots deep in the Hip-Hop movement of the early 90’s, his talent and taste were influenced by the talented musicianship of acts like Guy, R. Kelly, and Baby Face. These influences are evident in MarQell’s gift and passion for writing, arranging, and producing. Teaming-up with fellow collaborator Valentino Z. Maltos, MarQell and Z. formed an upstart company “Ro’Runnerz Productions”, in the early 2000’s. Together they’ve written and produced numerous songs for MarQell as well as many other regional artists.
Given MarQell’s range of talent he stands ready and eager to deliver; from Up tempo R&B, to soulful ballads, his smooth yet unique vocal sound.

Lyrics

After All

Written By: MarQell

“After All”

Verse 1:
Remember when we were just teens
Holding hands thinkin’ bout our dreams
Was no bills, was no strugglin’
Just a lot of crazy lovin’.
Oh sometimes we wish we could’ve stayed there
But then again, we wouldn’t be here
Still crazy lovin’, after all these years
Ain’t a damn thing I would change for our tears

Chorus:
After all the cries we went through
After all the pain I caused you
There ain’t a thing I would give
To change my love for you

After all the fights we argued
After all the separations too
There ain’t a thing I would change
I’m still happy with you

Verse 2:
There is nothing in this world that means more to me
Only the truest man can tell you that, you see
Cause I don’t wanna be the one to lose
All the fights all the bills all the little things we do
It’s kinda funny when you think about it
I know we wonder how we ever made it
All these things are what love’s about
You the only one that’s strong enough to know what I’m talkin’ bout

Chorus:
After all the cries we went through
After all the pain I caused you
There ain’t a thing I would give
To change my love for you

After all the fights we argued
After all the separations too
There ain’t a thing I would change
I’m still happy with you

Bridge: la la la
