MAARQUII- A high femme multi-disciplinary artist who raps, sings, dances and is the embodiment of the proverbial “triple threat.” After traveling in their youth from El Dorado, Arkansas to Tillamook, Oregon, they eventually found their place in Portland's underground queer scene, performing as a backup dancer for Chanti Darling, and participating in local dance companies.
In 2016 they met PDX production duo JVNITOR, a meeting that would spark their creative relationship and lead to their debut EP “Heavy Petty”, as well as 2017’s follow up EP “Lullaby in Gemini,”and now their debut album “C.A.B.O”. Over crushing dance, hip hop, and industrial leaning beats, ethereal soundscapes and soulful R&B influenced melodies MAARQUII is able to seamlessly transcend genre with a charismatic confidence and unflinching openness that is unmatched by their contemporaries.
