About PoorMarqus: Marqus Bobesich (aka PoorMarqus) is quickly gaining recognition as one of Canada’s most prolific new artists. He has created a unique brand of music with his combination of intelligent songwriting and poignant lyrics. A pure singer-songwriter, Marqus draws from such favourites as Sting, John Mayer, Counting Crows, David Gray, and Jeff Buckley to inspire his own playing and writing. After playing drums for 12 years, Marqus made the transition to vocalist while at university.

Marqus has received writing awards for his poetry, and his lyrics/poems have appeared in numerous publications across Canada. He has also appeared in over 40 television commercials airing in Canada, US, Europe and Australia.

“Small Town Oceans” (2001) marked the debut of Marqus as a solo artist. Together with 2-time Juno nominee Karen Kane, Marqus received a FACTOR Demo Award for recording. Marqus later went on to record “These Machines are Perfect” (2002) and “The Latest Version of Us” (2003), both with producer Brent Bodrug (Alanis Morisette, Jacksoul). For the last two years Marqus has been collaborating with Toronto writer/producer D’Arcy McGuire. Together, they co-wrote "On Standby To The World" and they continue to pitch and compose songs for commercial television.
