Marcus Jade: DC

Description

Marcus Jade is a Brooklyn Based Singer-Songwriter with several EP's under his belt and a constant showcase presenter and performer for Artery. Coming to the DC/Metro Area to perform for friends, musicians, and fans alike, come see an intimate experience with this amazing Blues Artist. Marcus Jade is a singer-songwriter, and guitar player who started self-learning his way around a guitar at 14 years old. By that time, he discovered he was drawn into and emerged in Indianapolis' eclectic music and art scene that found him at everything from house shows, underground and basement sets, to DIY venues. His appreciation of music allowed him to mesh with many outfits across genres, from Hip-Hop, to Punk, to Metal, to Zydeco, before settling into his own skin. This expression found him re-igniting his love and passion for blues music, writing and composing his own music. Currently living and jamming in Brooklyn, he has found a steady rhythm between offering his medicine at shoes across the New York City metro area. As a solo act, Marcus extensively performs on the east coast, in cities like Boston, Philadelphia and DC. In March, Marcus finished a Red Gorilla showcase at SXSW, in Austin, Texas. He and his friends put together unique intimate showcases in Austin on a pay-what-you-wish basis on rooftops, poolsides, and in private homes. In June, Marcus started two month residency at the Sable Project to continue working on his blues form and creating discussions about the importance of Black Folk Music in the 21st century and beyond. His residency ended in July 2018. A regular Artery performer, Marcus organizes showcases ranging from Art bursts, Black Power Potluck Dinners to Robert Johnson discussion showcases. With several EPs already under his belt, Marcus Jade is going places fast.
