CAROLINA INDY SPOTLIGHT: KING QUESY
Marques White also known as “Quesy” is a Lancaster Sc native, but was raised in Kershaw Sc. Growing up in Kershaw and then moving to Lancaster, Quesy began to develop a passion for music. While attending church at a young age with his grandmother, he began to writing his own music and started to sing. Now at the age of 26, he’s been working hard on perfecting his craft and developing his sound as an artist. His new single “On Go” is beginning to be picked up by DJ’s in the Carolina’s and receiving regular spins in the club. I had a chance to ask the young Carolina artist a few questions…
Who are your musical influences?
New Edition, Biggie n 2PAC, Silk, and the Temptations
If you could compare yourself to an already established artist, who would that be and why?
Chris Brown because just like him I have many different talents, such as singing, rapping, and dancing. And no matter how many try to down us, we still strive for greatness.
Who is your hero?
My uncle Derek. Before he died he told me to always chase my dreams.
What do you think your listeners get out of your music?
Positive vibes, music that they can dance to and let their friends listen too.
What were you thinking about when “On Go” was finished?
I finally did my first official video. It turned out exactly how I wanted it to.
What made you want to get into the music business?
My cousin Aaron because he was like a mentor too me and made me focus on the business side of the industry.
What is the most difficult thing you’ve had to endure in the music industry?
Losing my cousin Aaron in 2015. He was a big part of why I do music.
How does it feel to be finally getting your recognition?
It feels great.. Every where I go somebody says “aye I seen your video” or I heard your song… So it feels great..
With “On Go” being completed what’s up next for Suave Quesy?
Only thing I can tell you is that I got more hot music coming and shows are getting lined up… So I’m taking it one day at time
What do you hope to accomplish with your music?
To be able to prove to everybody that doubted or said I would never make it or amount to anything wrong..
