My name is Markell Thompson and I was born in Fayetteville, NC. I come from a family of musicians on both sides and started singing in the church as a child. Around middle school I began to write poetry and flourished in that area as well. As my poetry began to mature I realized that great songs are just poems put to music. Throughout high school I worked on perfecting my craft and once I graduated I continued to pursue music at The Winston Salem State University. As a spring 2014 graduate of Winston Salem State, with a Bachelors of Arts degree in Music Business, I continue to write, sing and record. With the hopes of being the next big singer/songwriter I am currently working on receiving recognition from major publishing and performance rights organizations.
