My name is Marliec 'DeYega. I have been writing songs for a long time now that I wished R.Kelly had seen some of my work of words. Nothin can stop me now. I write to define , not to impress but to express and even when I am depressed, I still write to progress from the duress of it all and from that state, emerged the name- Marliec 'DeYega.
Just like many, I have sang in the shower..on the buses and trains across the town of London. I thank the spirit above for the talent and all the blessings that accompanied it. I sing because it makes me happy. It's joy. I have studied my vocals and I am certain that NEW AGE, a blend of words and a blended mix of soul and rnb is my style...lets see if it works.
It's not a band, It's Marliec 'DeYega.
I have. I Have been to as many shows as time presents with my brother, "PaulJaplin" www.pauljaplin.com. I am sure it has helped me prepare a pre-stage performing experience. I have also performed at a wedding. A BoyzIIMen song, "I do", which at the time, was unknown by many. With a mic in my right hand, I did my thang.
My special moment was performing infront of my father. He questioned my constant use of all the writing materials at home and demanded I give a show for its purpose. I didnt do too badly. This ofcourse, was at the age of 16. Well, it's been memorable.
BoyzIIMen- They give me joy, R.kelly- He gives me hope. PaulJaplin? my brother)- He strengthens my belief. KD my brother- He confirms that belief. Marvin Gaye, Anthony Hamilton, Horace Brown, JL John Legend, H-town, Alfonso Hunter, Brian McKnight, Ray Charles, Lyfe Jennings, Barry White and many more.
My voice, my poise, Headfones and my Laptop.
