It has been over half a century since true American original Jerry Lee Lewis first rocketed to the top of America's pop, country, and R&B charts with "Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On" and "Great Balls of Fire." While those iconic performances still define the essence of rock 'n' roll for millions, "The Killer" himself continues to thrill audiences around the world with his unique, scorching blend of rock, blues, country, and gospel.

With a lifetime of triumph and tragedy to draw from, Lewis sings and plays with the seasoned wisdom of a man who's seen it all and the savvy confidence of a performer who knows that music - and the emotional truths it carries - is the thing that matters most. In addition to his many rock hits, he has also paid homage to his deep country roots throughout his career. A Grammy Lifetime Achievement winner and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, Lewis has enjoyed over 30 Top 10 country hits, including "Another Time, Another Place," "To Make Love Sweeter for You," "There Must Be More to Love Than This," "Think About It Darlin'," "Once More with Feeling," and "Me and Bobby McGee," among others.

Lewis continues his legacy with his latest release Mean Old Man (2010). The disc, the much-anticipated follow-up to his 2006 album Last Man Standing, finds the legendary musician combining his country roots with the compelling force of his signature rock, blues, and gospel style in a dream set list of classic songs, many of which might not exist had Lewis not kicked open the floodgates back in the '50s. Simply put, the disc is an important and monumental music from the man Rolling Stone listed among the Greatest Artists of All Time - Jerry Lee Lewis, perhaps the last American original.

"Today's music is over-ego or over-sex. There isn't a conversation of what went wrong, why people do what they do in relationships. Where are the songs saying we're all still learning?"
- Bradd Marquis

They say there are no more good guys; that nice guys finish last. Soul singer/songwriter and actor/producer Bradd Marquis lays these myths to rest with the release of his third independent album release, Thank You. Enchanting audiences with his 2007 album debut, the critically acclaimed Finding My Way and its 2011 follow-up, Authentic, Marquis projects the kind of clean-cut, old school charm unseen since the days of Sam Cooke. The spiritual troubadour with the pulse of the common man, Marquis strums the pains, feelings, and thoughts of that brother who struggles to find the words to say.

Towering, boyishly handsome, and boasting a baritone dipped in the gravel and gravy of Southern soul, Marquis is one of the streets and the steeple. A committed man of dedicated faith and community service, Marquis is the anti-thesis of today's R&B bad boys. Like his inspirations, Marquis started his stage life in front of the pews. Deriving from a rich family legacy of performers that includes blood ties to Phyllis Hyman, Debbie Allen, and Phylicia Rashad, Marquis traveled as a child performer in the "Family & Friends" gospel troupe. He rocked the church with preternaturally grown vocals until high school. A star-turning performance at a college show returned Marquis to music and later membership with the R&B quartet, Mass Appeal. Soon joining up with Babyface's production team, Marquis further refined his music and engineering skills, working with future Finding My Way producer, Jeremy "Cochise" Ball, Thank You producer, Angelo Ray, as well as the legendary Gerald Levert and the Rude Boys.

Soon after, Marquis' indie mixtape, All Love, All the Time, dropped in 2006, opening more doors. Signed to a production company, it wasn't long before Marquis was releasing his 2007 debut LP, Finding My Way (Quiet As Kept). Breaking through NYC airwaves with the regional R&B hit, "Radio," Marquis booked Apollo Live and multiple guest spots on both BET's 106 & Park and Showtime at the Apollo. Named Soul Singer of the Year by 106 & Park, Marquis landed the Soul Summer Tour and Budweiser Superfest tour where he traveled as the stable opening act for Jaheim, Tamia, India.Arie, Blue Magic, Frankie Beverly & Maze, Gordon Chambers, and Hal Linton. Marquis also toured as "Adam" in Oscar Brown Jr's musical fable, In De Beginnin'. Additionally, Marquis starred in videos and wrote music for artists in New Zealand where Finding My Way hit. Marquis lyrical prowess soon scored song placement on projects by Styles P, Ethical, Young Sid, and Sly and Robbie. 


In 2009, Marquis independently released the FMW2.5 mixtape. While Marquis debut and mixtape told of his broken engagement, 2011's Authentic was more introspective. Moody blues and torch ballad rich, Authentic was a raw, transparent portrait of a man struggling with hard decisions at life's crossroads. Singing about broken families, lost love, and the roughness of the industry climb prompted Marquis to take a hiatus to make peace with family, study, and re-discover his spirituality and church.

With upbeat, melodic, and undeniably soulful party music, Marquis returns with his most assured set to-date. Largely written and recorded in five days with sole producer Angelo Ray, the more up-tempo Thank You is a love letter to everyone who stuck by and loved Marquis through his turmoil and evolution into manhood. Straddling the line between the secular and spiritual, Marquis writes honest material of life and love lessons. With unvarnished musical illustrations of an artist stripped of both ego and mask to reveal the interiors of his heart, connecting with a testimonial soul that both teaches and reminds listeners they are not alone all makes Bradd Marquis this generation's everyman's soul man.
