Marcus Smith is a Producer, Songwriter, Keyboard Player, and Vocalist. He has been in the industry for over 30 years and has worked with many local and major artists before working on his own projects. Marcus started getting
involved in music like everyone early in his years. While at the 14 street rec center in Winston-Salem N.C. way back when, he heard some guys rehearsing the Temptation song "You're My Everything". The drummer was beating, the guitar stringing, the bass man booming and wow the singers were singing like birds. That is when Marcus said to himself that this is what he wanted to do. He joined the well-known "Whispers" Camp where he learned to produce records.
