Marquise BIO: -«I come from a violent ghetto. I lived with my mother and my brothers in subsidized housing. At 22, I was going to school, I was learning to play the guitar and I was composing songs. After a concert in an art gallery, Nadia, the owner offered to help me by introducing me to a friend of hers, a drummer and producer in Switzerland. David contacted me and we hit it off straight away, we were on the same musical wavelength. After a few months, David suggested that I try my luck in Switzerland. If I could get there by my own means, he would find me good plans to perform in concert and to earn money. This would allow me to finance the recording and production of my first album. So instead of going to study, I took a risk by begging while playing music in the street, I did odd jobs: digging holes, picking up stones, taking care of customers in hotels. Then I sold my guitar and bought a cheaper one. I managed to raise a few hundred dollars and in January 2018 I flew to Switzerland. After 34 hours of flight and a chaotic itinerary, I finally arrived on Swiss soil. David and I worked hard, show after show. We recorded the album ourselves. In 2017, I participated in American idol, but it wasn’t really my thing because I don’t like to play other people’s music. And now I’m ready to share my music with the rest of the world…
