While pursuing his JD and MBA at Georgetown, he independently produced and distributed his first CD (Lessons in Love), which sold more than 40,000 units; a phenomenal success for an unknown independent artist’s debut release. This album helped him launch his career as a renowned jazz keyboardist/pianist, and later, he released his second CD (Inter Alia), with staggering success

This success caught the attention of Black Entertainment Television (BET) founder and businessman Robert L. Johnson, who invested and partnered with Marcus to establish Marimelj Entertainment Group. Under their partnership, MEG’s label Three Keys Music housed Studio 8121, a full-service recording studio, and two music publishing companies: Marimelj Music Publishing and Three Keys Music Publishing.

As head of Three Keys Music, Johnson produced and released on the Three Keys Music label national jazz artists: Michael Lington, Jaared Arosemena, Bobby Lyle, Nick Colionne, R&B singer, Alyson Williams, neo-soul songstress, Zahzarah; and smooth jazz Saxophonists Phillip Martin and Brian Lenair.

To date, Marcus has released more than fifteen Billboard charted CDs, and has the distinction of having his groundbreaking 2008 Billboard Top 20 Contemporary Jazz FLO (For the Love Of) Anthology, which consisted of three distinct CDs — FLO Chill, FLO Romance and FLO Standards – all chart Top 10 on Billboard Contemporary Jazz Charts simultaneously.

The release of Poetically Justified (2009) and This is How I Rock (2011), which were Top 20 Contemporary Jazz CDs, solidified Marcus Johnson as the heir apparent to the funky urban groove music style and sound made famous by legendary jazz greats, George Duke and Herbie Hancock.

Jackson’s mix of original compositions and acoustic renditions will take his listeners on a journey of anticipation for what’s next. Jackson produces projects that offer something for every persons taste, whether it is Rock, Contemporary Christian, Jazz, Soulful R&B and more.

Jackson is often thought of as a “quiet giant” due to his humble and quiet nature but, once on stage it’s easy to see this is where he’s most comfortable and Jackson comes to life through his music. His live productions set him apart from the rest.

In 2012, he embarked on a career to record his first album, “Stories In Color” which was met with critical acclaim to his credit. His sophomore offering, “The Mirrored Truth” garnished the single “Favorite Way” which was considered for a Grammy for song of the year. His song “We Got Us” from his third album “Full Circle” was also considered for a Grammy in 2018.

Throughout the years, Jackson has opened for Anthony Hamilton, performed live shows around the country, and produced four albums. During the COVID-19 pandemic, Jackson continued his work and love for music by performing private shows for family, friends, and fans alike. He successfully recorded his fourth debut album set to release in August 2021.
