Since moving to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in 2009 from New York, Q Sound or better known as Marques Young has made profound contributions to the development of the growing jazz culture in Southeast Asia. Through his bands ‘Q Sound Band’ and the ‘Bassment Syndicate‘, he has led numerous performances at jazz venues throughout the region, including sold-out performances at the Dewan Filharmonik Petronas as part of DFP’s Happy Hour Series. He’s also initiated several educational projects where he has had the opportunity to mentor outstanding young jazz musicians. Among these projects, the Jazz Camp at DFP, mentored by Marques and a number of young jazz stars from New York City, resulted in his appointment as artistic director of the Encounter Jazz Program.
Marques began his musical studies at age twelve with the euphonium under the direction of Gordon Manley. At sixteen, he was also playing trombone, and in 2001 was accepted into Arkansas Tech University School of Music, studying under Dr. Will Kimball. During his undergraduate studies, he received numerous awards and honors, including an invitation to the Leonard Falcone International Euphonium Solo Competition, where he was awarded first runner-up.
Dasha Logan has been exposed to the music scene and life of a musician before she can remember, having grown up in a musical family.
Now an upcoming artist herself, she has been singing professionally for the past 3 years, but started her journey with music at the tender age of 4 when her love for performing began. At 17 she was offered her first singing gig which kicked off her life on stage and it naturally only took one performance for everyone to see what an amazing talent she has.
