Ryan Marquez

Born:

Missourian Ryan Marquez’s music has been called many things but “accessibly out there” might be the keyboardist, producer, songwriter, arranger, and vocalist’s favorite description of his unique sound that is baptized in Blues, indoctrinated by Jazz and raised in Hip-Hop culture. “Passionate in everything he does” (WSIE 88.7, “The Sound''), he “truly embodies the creative collaboration...essential to moving St. Louis forward full steam ahead.” (Regional Arts Commission of STL) His music represents a diverse ecosystem of “feel good vibes” that he channels by infusing tasteful jazz piano chops, a Pop songwriter/arranger sensibility, with vocal flavors from Progressive R & B/Hip-Hop

In 2019, in his first participation to Victor Wooten's bass camp, Lorenzo played Marcus Miller's "Power" on the stage.

Lorenzo's biggest bass inspirations are Stanley Clarke, Marcus Miller, Victor Wooten, Stuart Zender. Since 2018 Lorenzo has been playing at Umbria Jazz festival almost every year, and participated to the Berklee clinics where he met some of the musicians that have been involved in the making of his first official track.
