Marqs DeSade started playing guitar when he was 11 years old. By the time he was 14 he was playing in a band in bars and for private parties. For many years he played in a variety of local bands in the south. The last few years he has been playing solo.
Since 2014, Marqs has been doing shows regularly in the virtual world of SecondLife. You'll find him pretty much every week in a few venues, sharing his covers and original tunes with his own unique style.
Marqs has been a songwriter since he began playing. His songs come from the experiences of life, and most listeners "find themselves" in his songs. They speak to the feelings and experiences we all share.. love, heartache, joy, loss, life, death..
Marqs has a passion for music - listening, writing, recording, performing it, and that's what this site is dedicated to. Music and exploring how to make and share it.
Get your motor runnin'.. and let's get out on the musical highway!
Marqs DeSade has been writing and performing music for over 4 decades. Marqs is a singer-songwriter, blogger, and a pretty good whistler. He loves eating banana pudding, riding motorcycles, and sharing laughter with friends, though not necessarily all at the same time. While he has many interests, his passion is music.
As well as being an awesome musician, Marqs has also turned his hand to writing, and in his "Say What You've Got To Say: A Songwriter's Perspective", Marqs gives insights into the mind of a songwriter through examining seven of his own original songs.
In the book you'll discover why the songs were written, what makes them unique in his song catalog, and some of the lessons that he learned about songwriting from that particular song.
