SOP's Battle of the Bands Featuring Marcus Elias with 'To The Woman I Love' (Freestyle)

By SOP newswire2

Marcus was Born in Pittsburgh, PA but grew up in many different places. Soon after his 5th birthday he moved out of the country to Johannesburg, South Africa & began his journey. Him & his family were in a fatal car accident, while living in Africa that left his right arm paralyzed that doctors said would never function again.

Two years later he re-gained full control of his arm by doing physical therapy everyday. A few years later his family moved back to America to Los Angeles County, CA, in the Valley, moved to San Diego for a bit, & Boca Raton, FL. After graduating High School he moved to Orange County, CA. Growing up in so many different places & being middle eastern gave Marcus a worldly background & unique sound & taste of music.

Marcus always had a musical background growing up, his mother was a classically trained pianist, he played trombone at age 9 in the school band and started DJing at age 13. At age 19 Marcus got into Audio Engineering & started interning at various studios learning the in`s and out`s of the music business while taking college music courses part-time. He started taking private piano lessons at age 21 to pursue his passion for producing music.
