Lloyd Marks - Male Singer | California(no reviews)
Based In: California
My Job as A singer as A "Soul Singer" is to make you have A true spiritually encounter. To make you fill elevated and free when you leave the performance. So that is my agenda and goal. With A solid band we can truly create A night or evening worth remembering. Doing all the great classics of yesterday and today. Feeding off the crowds energy and just being in the moment of true emancipation.
Well my family is from the South. Louisiana. So I grew up listening up to all that great music. Jazz, Blues and of course Soul. I didn't start taking singing seriously until I was 15. After that it was A wrap. I started singing simply for luv! I luved this girl sooooo much. But I didn't fill special enough to have her luv. But when I stared to sing about her I felt as if God gave me something so special. And that maybe one day if I sung to her I could have her luv. And that was it! then my influences came along as I started to progress as A man and singer. Like Otis Redding, Muddy Waters and B ... illie Holiday. Esperzana Spalding and Maxwell in contemporary standards. After high school got into A band and I just started to learn the ends and outs of the music world and gigging. Ironically it was A Rock band. And I hand no idea about that music. But I soon found out. The music was nothing I was proud of. But as A child you do childish things and you learn as you get older. At the tale end of the band it was also the height of the band. I was getting calls to perform at the House of blues in San Diego, CA every other week and calls to do festivals in Texas. But at that time my Soul was pretty much already grained. A soul singer with no soul. Doesn't work ever! Through my depts. I found the almighty and I was blessed with his spirit. I found Jesus. At 21 I was baptized and singing in the choir ever since then. And at 22 I was invited to sing for the executives of the Ray Charles enterprise. And I walk away from the building with an offer being drawn up to be the face of the label. Thank you Jesus! I started to work with one of the greatest Vocal coaches ever by the name of Seth Riggs. By his own acclaim " In just three secessions you are way ahead! I have been blessed to work with legendary soul musicians that have back those legendary Soul men of yesterday such as Marvin Gaye, Temptations, Prince, Commodores, Etta James and countless others. There names are Trevor Laurence, Wa Wa Watson, Howard Hewwet and many more that I have forgotten!! as A once young shot would. I once forgotten why started to sing. And it was for luv. Yes. But also that filling it gives to people when they fill that all is lost. Music and art has the ability to influence in the most critical of ways . If only we only let the power of luv and God guide it.
