Marc Staggers

Marc Staggers_”a talented Washington, D.C. native_”has released his new album “Key to My Heart” on Expansion Records, much to the excitement of many of his supportive fans. This album continues the soulful musical journey that started with the release of his debut R&B album “Then and Now” in 2009. His vocal style, often compared to famous soul singers of the past and present, will certainly captivate and continue to generate fan interest across the world.

The development of his unique style is the result of a lifetime of musical influence, including the late Luther Vandross. Marc started singing in the church choir and studied voice as he was growing up. Marc's Television appearances have been featured on the Maryland Public Television (MPT) program “Artworks This Week,” with Nate Howard; ABC Channel 2 News, with Terry Owens; ABC Channel 2 “Grace & Glory,” with Lee Michaels; PAX Cable Television show “Life Styles,” with Deborah Britt; and the cable program “Glorify His Name,” hosted by James McCollum.

Marc’s soulful voice has carried him into many venues, including singing background for Mom and Pop Winans at “From the Heart Ministries” and for Kathy Myers at Lincoln Theater in Washington DC. He has also performed and recorded with the Late Clifton Dyson and Stu Gardner, musical director for Bill Cosby.

After many years of pursuing gospel music, Marc felt that his true heart’s desire was in producing music that was reminiscent of the type of soul music he listened to while growing up. This led to his debut CD “Then and Now,” which had topped the UK’s “Sweet Rhythms Chart,” for three weeks at the number one position. The album has received critical acclaim from music critics from around the world. The album has also made inroads into the U.S. radio market, thanks in part to independent Smooth Jazz/R&B promoters “Gorov Music Marketing”.

My first thought on hearing Marc Staggers' music was, “Now he gets it... that music is not just about hearing, it's about feeling.” Every note of THEN & NOW goes deep into the heart of the listener, touching and comforting the very soul. The Washington DC based singer/songwriter with his resonant, rich voice is predominantly known for his work in the gospel arena (Mom and Pop Winans, Clifton Dyson), but effortlessly transitions to R&B/Smooth Jazz... a perfect fit. The opening track, “Give You All My Lovin',” leaves no doubt as to Staggers' sincerity when he tells his lady “he just wants to spend some time.” “Just You And Me” is a tender, sensual caress, while “L.O.V.E.” is touching and inspirational

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
