Exclusive Interview With Aries Marquis

Aries Marquis 4HCM. Tell us a little bit about yourself. Who/what inspired you to become an artist, when did you start making music and taking it serious?
Aries Marquis. First thing to know about me is how excited and grateful I am for this opportunity given me to tell a little bit about me musical journey! Much appreciated! I was born and raised in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, in this small town called Scotlandville, in which I described in my album. Been doing this for quite some time, but I’m finally making some credible progress. The story of how I got inspired to start doing music really starts with both of my parents. I have been singing since five years old, according to my mom, in church choirs. As far as singing solo, I didn’t start doing that until the second semester of my senior year in high school. Again, that was inspired by my mom, because she said, “In your senior year, go out with a bang!” That is exactly what I did, but before that, I didn’t even know I had a “voice” at all, because I was too nervous and unsure to try and sing solo, at all. My dad heard my voice, in 2006, on my voicemail, Continue reading “Exclusive Interview With Aries Marquis”
