DAVID MARION began his musical career at the age of 6 by playing a variety of musical instruments. By 10, he changed his focus from clarinet to drums and, then, began his career in bass guitar at 16.
To further cultivate his interest as a bass player, he attended C.I.M., a jazz music institute located in his native land of Paris, France.
From there, DAVID MARION continued his studies and obtained a scholarship to attend Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA.
He also got the opportunity to take lessons with the great VICTOR WOOTEN from Bela Fleck and the Flecktones, STEVE BAILEY and ADAM NITTI at the Bass/Nature Camp in Nashville, TN.
Raised as a Christian and inspired by artists like Fred Hammond and Kirk Franklin, he gained more experience by playing with Gospel bands (New Gospel Family, Jo Ann Pickens, Gospel Act, Maggie Blanchard, Exo...). Since then, he has performed world-wide (Europe, Australia, Africa, Pacific, Canada, The USA, South America, The Carribeans...) with various television/radio appearances (Hit Machine, Top of the Pops, Urban Rush, 20h10 pétante, CBC, Fréquence Jazz, Canada AM...) for different genres of music (Rock, Pop, Soul, Folk-Rock, Gospel, World, Smooth Jazz...).
David is currently touring with Canadian singer/songwriter Alex Cuba www.alexcuba.com
