After finding out they both had a love for music, they started collaborating on songs that Marcus had started writing (now a complete CD, “Throwback”, which is a mix of 70’s sound, smooth jazz, R&B, pop and a touch of hip hop).Marcus started playing the Bongo drums at the age of 9 on National Avenue in the alley of his inner city home in San Diego, CA. He found this way to entertain himself while he lived there with his mother, Barbara, and his sister, Rita. After moving to Oklahoma City, OK, where he was born, Marcus played drums in several garage bands. After high school, Marcus returned to San Diego and played in several top twenty bands in clubs throughout San Diego in the late 1980’s. Marcus, who is a self taught pianist and producer, then started sending songs to major labels.
