Marquee (born Markeith Blackshear) comes from a single family home in the small, country town of Hazlehurst GA and with a singing background in the church at the age of 13. One could argue that his career originated by singing backup to for his sister and child hood friends for fun and school talent shows. However as time passed, Marquee developed a serious curiosity for singing and performing and his childish interest advanced into a passion.
Ultimately deciding to act on his new found passion, Marquee worked hard at developing his sound and was determined to pursue a career as a solo artist in an effort to reach his full potential. Performing in local shows and events and modeling as well, the singer was convinced he could gain some level of success in the music industry.
Currently the up and coming singer has seized the opportunity to speak his life through his lyrics by signing with the well-known independent record label Mysterious Entertainment, LLC. Marquee is in the process of working on several projects with the label and its artist roster and is featured on the EP from A. Teezy “A-1”; along with the debut EP from Minus. He has already been featured on the labels latest single “She Looking” available now on all major retail outlets.
Marquee’s goal is to make timeless music that is heard, felt and understood by most while making his mark in the music industry.
