Marcus Scott

Electrifying. Soulful. Compelling. These three words exemplify the sound of “Memphis Soul Man” Marcus Scott. Born and raised in a city that is well known for world class soul music, Marcus Scott is the real deal. As a young boy, he would sit with his ears glued to the radio, mimicking every sound he heard. This fascination evolved into an insatiable desire to entertain and capture the hearts of audiences everywhere. His musical journey started in 2005 as a hit in local Memphis talent shows and he quickly became known as the “go to” singer for all of the major gigs in Memphis. Larry Dodson of the legendary Barkays gave him a call to collaborate on “House Party”, he has sung with James Ingram and has appeared at Isaac Hayes night club and he’s been the lead singer with the house band for the NBA’s Memphis Grizzlies. If you close your eyes and listen to his voice you‘ll realize that Marcus is on a trajectory towards becoming a truly elite soul singer in the vein of Marvin Gaye, Aretha Franklin, James Brown, Sam Cooke, and Otis Redding.

About the Album

Back 2 Da Soul” was born out Scott’s love of classic Memphis soul music, a passion he bonded with Sweetwater Founder and CEO Chuck Surack, and Hornsby over when the three met after a Tower of Power performance in Fort Wayne. Hornsby and Surack had already been impressed by Scott’s performances with Tower of Power, but when he told them that he had written his own material, they were intrigued. “There are a lot of people who can sing, or perform, or write, but it’s a very hard thing to find someone who can do all three really well,” explained Hornsby. “When I realized that Marcus was as talented of a writer as he was a singer and performer, I knew we had to work on this material together.

Scott exchanged demos with Surack and Hornsby while working on Tower of Power’s 50th Anniversary Live DVD, and it was agreed that he should come to Sweetwater Studios to record the tracks for what would become “Back 2 Da Soul.” For Scott, who sought a classic feel for the tracks while still wanting it to sound modern and hi-fi, the partnership made perfect sense. “Mark and I hit it off when we first met over all the right things,” he said. Hornsby agreed, saying, “From a producing point of view, [Surack] and I are both heavily rooted in old school R&B music, so we were all on the same page and speaking the same language. We wanted to get that old school sound but put it in a modern context.”
