TICKETS ON SALE NOW!!!
ABOUT THE ARTISTS
“Baptized” in music before he was born, Marcus Young experienced 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, 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. That’s not to say this young singer, songwriter, composer and musician from Fort Washington, MD, follows any kind of formula. “Groove Jazz” so he says.
Marcus H Mitchell is not only a rising saxophone star but is also CEO and President of 24th Music, a division of MHM Entertainment Group based in Maryland. The youngest independent executive to be on the voting committee for the Grammy Awards he is about to release his latest CD, the excellent ‘R & R – Rest & Relaxation’. It follows on from his 2005 debut ‘Jumpin’ and is a classy eleven track collection of fresh urban jazz sounds that is epitomized by the tune ‘Just Groovin’. With a title that pretty much sums up what Mitchell does throughout the album it is replete with his own brand of edgy smooth jazz and, although rest and relaxation may not entirely be what Mitchell is all about, the smoky title track, the chilled out ‘Deep Concentration’ and finally ‘Summer Breeze’ all demonstrate that he knows mellow urban jazz.
Marcus Canty started acting at the age of 3 in church plays and graduated to the big stage in an award-winning OneStage production’s play titled, A Family That Prays Together. He didn’t tap into his singing talent until the age of 11. His first public performance was at the world-famous Apollo Theater in New York where he won second place against adult and youth contenders. He continued singing in church, school choirs, county and state choirs, while also singing in talent shows and other competitions and events throughout the United States and Canada. While singing was something that came natural to Canty, basketball was his first real love. He began playing the sport at the age of eight and continued to play throughout high school until he was given an ultimatum of basketball or singing. Realizing that he wouldn’t be 6’6” tall, singing became his obvious choice, and he is now pursuing his dreams.
On January 18, 2012, Epic Records announced that Canty, along with two other contestants, who were also mentored by LA Reid, had all signed recording contracts. On March 7, 2012, Canty released his first single “Won’t Make a Fool Out of You”, which was featured in the 2012 film Think Like a Man, an adaptation of Steve Harvey’s book Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man. As of March 22, 2012, “Won’t Make A Fool Out of You” charted at #98 on Billboard’s R/B chart. It was sent to urban AC radio stations on May 15, 2012 as the third single from the soundtrack. On July 31, Marcus released his second single, “In & Out,” which featured Wale. Marcus released his debut extended play, This…Is Marcus Canty, on March 5, 2013.
