Markus Free developed a passion for music early in life. He began singing at a young age in church which
honed his talent as a singer and pianist in front of large crowds. He also would go to fall in love with the
hip hop culture of East Point, Ga, mixing rap with his singing. It was during this time he realized that
reaching people through song and poetry was what he was created to do and would later become his
purpose in life. Markus continued to cultivate his craft by singing at talent shows and working with up and
coming artists in school. This would later prove to be a testament to his hard work by inking a major label deal with R&B group Hamilton Park and label giant, Atlantic Records.
Hamilton Park traveled the country, Markus and his counterparts experienced success on the popular Scream Tour, along with acts such as Diggy Simmons,
Jacob Latimore, TK & Cash and many others. They would later go on to work with greats such as Pharrell Williams, Jermain Dupree, Big Boi of Out Kast,
Andre Harrell, Tank, and slim of 112. The pinnacle of Hamilton Park's big success was supplemented by landing on BET 106&Park top 10 videos and also
featured airplay on MTV and VH1 music channels and E! News as the next big R&B group.
In 2013 Markus decide to leave Hamilton Park to purse the next
chapter in his life, of which creating an atmosphere of empowerment and
strength through love and overcoming adversity. Since going solo, Markus has performed on major stages like the Fox Theatre, Atlanta Civic Center,
Verizon Theatre in Dallas, TX, and many others. Major label deal offers continue to pour in, yet, he's looking to do it “differently this time around”.
