D'MAR's one check is a soulful testament to a subject most us know all too check to check. D'MAR's sound gives you the best of both old and new school soul sprinkled with just enough hip-hop influence to keep people from 15-55 groovin.
To get a sneak peek of D'MAR's new material click D'MAR's web link below and be sure leave your email info so we can let you know about the new release... Every Once in a while an artist comes along that combines the best elements of the past with the pulse of the present. Here we present to you D'MAR, a singer, songwritter, producer and musician who has done just that. His music has a 21st century freshness yet retains a familiarity of days gone by.
D'MAR, a native of Jackson,MS has amassed a wealth of experience in a short time. As a drummer, he has been performing professionally for over 15 years. He has performed and toured with artists such as Dorothy moore, G.C. Cameron, Katie Webster, Ali woodson and has been a main fixture in the Little Richard Band for the past ten years. D'MAR has played on numerous albums, commercials, T.V. shows including The Tonite Show, The American Music Awards, The Wayne Brady Show, Late Night With David Letterman, The Howie Mandel Show, The Magic Hour, The Rupaul Show and the closing ceremonies of the 1996 Olympics, just to name a few.
"One Check" is the smoking lead single to his stunning debut. Built around a smoldering bass line and sparkling keys, D'MAR sings about the pain and agony of being one paycheck away from being broke. This song follows the rich tradition of stalwarts r & b giants like Marvin Gaye's "What's Going On" and Stevie Wonder's Magnus opus "Songs In The Key Of Life" with a touch of Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five's "The Message" thrown in for good measure. D'MAR offers three killer versions. The original version combines old school soul and hip-hop in a seamless manner. The rap version is a dirty south testimonial. And you know D'MAR had to hit you off with the soul live band version that will keep you groovin' until you get yo' next check. He also includes a bonus track for all the haters called "Say What!". So be sure to get to this CD and be on the look out for the full length CD "The D'MAR Experience Volume 1(The Chronicles Of U)" comin' soon. Check It Out.
