Marcus Young
“Baptized” in music before he was born, Marcus Young knew the sound of music at an early age. He was raised in an environment surrounded by music under the influence of his father, Steven Young, who is a music teacher and an accomplished musician. It’s no surprise that Marcus is a master at playing multiple instruments. Marcus is playing out what he was born to do – deliver pure soulful melodic and inspirational songs infused with Jazz rhythms. “Groove Jazz” as Marcus calls it.

Rodney Kelley Jr.
“RKII” is keyboardist and bassist Rodney Kelley Jr . The young artist style suggest the maturity and presence of a much older musician! At such a young age, Rodney Kelley Jr manages to appeal to the “grown and sexy” audience as well introduce younger audiences to smooth jazz, with his delicious helpings of funk and hip hop undertones! “RKII” is guaranteed to please with something for everyone!
