Artist Snapshot

MAARQUII is a high femme, multi-disciplinary artist who raps, sings, dances, and is the embodiment of the proverbial “triple threat.” After traveling in their youth from El Dorado, Arkansas to Tillamook, Oregon, they eventually found their place in Portland's underground queer scene, performing as a backup dancer for Chanti Darling and participating in local dance companies. In collaboration with producer JVNITOR they released 2 EPs and a full length between 2016-2019. Over crushing dance beats, hip hop beats, industrial leaning beats, ethereal soundscapes, and soulful R&B influenced melodies, MAARQUII is able to seamlessly transcend genre with a charismatic confidence and an unflinching openness that is unmatched by their contemporaries.
