Official Bio:

Finally, soul music has returned, in the form of the up and coming R&B phenomenon, Bradd Marquis. He has an amazing voice and a stellar personality. Born Bradd Marquis in Trenton, New Jersey he was raised in the deep gospel traditions of the church and strong, family values and after one listen it’s easy to see why Bradd Marquis is a superstar! While most of his peers and childhood friends succumbed to a life of crime or gang violence, Bradd Marquis chose a different route. He decided to attain a college degree from the University Of Cincinnati (UC) in order to become a community spokesperson. While at UC Bradd Marquis began performing in several talent shows, which influenced him to take his talent to the next level. Bradd Marquis’ passion for music drove him to become a triple threat as an artist who can write, perform, and produce.

Upon moving to New York one of the first people he met with was the well-known producer, Cochise (Elam Records) who has worked with some of the biggest names in the business. Cochise explains why he wanted to work with Bradd, “He was exactly what I was looking for. I never heard someone sing with such emotion and sincerity. On top of his great image, he is so articulate and purpose driven that I thought he would make a great public figure.” Bradd Marquis believes in communicating a positive message through his music and is evident in his motto: “All Love, All The Time.” He is an amazingly talented performer and he is already building an impressive fan base from his televised performances on Showtime At The Apollo and BET’s “Wild Out Wednesdays” on 106 and Park, where he won the 2007 Soul Singer of the year award.

He has performed live in several New York City industry showcases such as Sol Village @SOB’s, Faces In The Crowd, Blaze The Stage, and R&B Live @ Spotlight where his performance was given a standing ovation from the legendary R.Kelly . Mr. Marquis also coordinates and performs live in his own multi-artist showcases. Bradd Marquis’ first, buzz single “Radio” is already receiving air play on New York’s 1 radio station, Hot 97. World famous DJ and on-air personality Kay Slay was the first person to play the song and has already endorsed Bradd Marquis as the next, R&B powerhouse.
