Once Marcus picked up the guitar he found what he feels truly feeds his burning ambition and most importantly the purpose of his existence. Between various bands and groups he was able to rapidly build lists of composition ideas that led him away from the stage and secluded himself to learn how to channel all of his ideas and deep emotions into his music. Marcus began to session for other artists and producers as an instrumentalist providing his unique and passionate style on any genre thrown at him.
Over time Marcus really began securing his own sound. Combining the emotional events of his life with a fiery ambition that will never dim. Marcus found his niche for composing deeply emotional and some may say "sorrowful" instrumentals. Being able to touch his audience with his music overall is a goal that he continues to hold dear and maintain.
Marcus "Ritmo" Figueroa is rapidly growing his audience and intends on going nowhere but forward. He remains dedicated and disciplined as he continues to learn and expand to new horizons.
