Marcus Johnson is an saxophonist rising through the ranks of the Smooth jazz scene. As a product of the great musical city of Nashville, Tennessee, Marcus developed his passion for music at a young age by beginning to play the saxophone at the age of 10. Nashville's wide range of musical styles and traditions inspired him to develop a unique sound that draws from jazz, R&B, funk, blues, soul and gospel. Which is why his great sound works very well with weddings, social events, Bar Mitzi, festivals, studio work etc.
This contemporary jazz artist also comes from a musical family and found great joy listening to his many musical family members.
In 2010, at twenty-two years old, Marcus graduated from college with a degree in Economics and Finance and landed
a job on Wall Street.
While in NYC, Marcus immediately regained his inspiration for the music scene, specifically jazz. One week, Marcus decided to take a week off, head down to Philadelphia and study under Grammy Award winning producer Elite and the famed Quad Studio who has produced music for hip hop icons such as:
2015 Academy Award-winning hip- hop artist Common (“Glory”)
Def Jam's Jada Kiss
Grammy Award-winning Artist Nas
Grammy 2014 “Best New Artist” J. Cole
That bold move led to opportunities to work in New York venues such as: Ritz Carlton, Bowery Ballroom, Brooklyn Bowl, Village, BB Kings, Underground, Village Vanguard, City Winery, Oz Studio, 5Spot, Rockwood Music Hall, Milk River, Venetian Yacht Club, Harmon Instruments, Be with some of music's most notable personalities such as:
