According to his website, “Marvin has been singing since he was five, when his Grandmother used to take him to church in his native Bermuda.

“Whilst in school his talents were noticed by the school’s music teacher and revered vocal coach on the island. From then on with the help his friend and coach, Marvin went on to sing for several hotel house bands and party bands around the island before branching out on his own as a solo vocalist.

“During his time in Bermuda he was also cast in several theatrical roles in well known Musicals such as The Full Monty, Ragtime and Jesus Christ Superstar.

“In 2012 Marvin moved to the UK with his family to pursue his musical and equestrian careers. When not singing or working on his music, Marvin is to be found riding and training his two Dressage horses.”
