"Sing unto Him a new song; play
"Just another, unemployed talented musician looking for a chance. Could not even afford formal music training."
Born in Oceanside, California, raised in Passaic, New Jersey, the younger of two children, Anthony Marcus was influenced by music at an early age. From infancy Anthonys' parents can remember hearing his request for James Brown in the form of "ah ah ah".
Music came naturally to Anthony, upon auditioning for the elementary school band, the instructor told him that he had a "natural ear" and could play any instrument he wanted to.
It was the age of 9 when Anthony decided he wanted to play guitar.
So began the years of "self teaching". Anthony purchased 2 books, from these books he discovered chords and soloing.
Many influences are responsible for the molding and shaping of Anthony Marcus as an artist.
As well as music within the secular world, Anthony was also influenced by gospel music as well. Being assigned the task of choir director at the age of 12, Anthony learned not only the musical assembly of instruments, but vocals as well.
"God will always be the main part in my life, not only in the past, but in the present as well. I feel that my talent in music is a God given talent, and as such I use this talent that He has bestowed upon me to glorify His name. Let's face it, without Him, none of this would be possible, by myself, nor any other artist in this industry."
