What is to be…..Will be.
Marvin was born the fourth (4th) child of eight (8) children…right in the middle
of the mix. From an early age, he had been surrounded by music and musicians –
long before he had personally realized his calling as a musician. He is related to the
legendary singer King Toots Hibbert, and his father is Owen Brown – a popular radio
Disc Jockey. He grew up watching his mother play the piano and singing in the
church choir, as well as seeing his grandfather play the saxophone. However, his
mother played the most crucial role of taking him to church. Church and gospel
music, manifested to be highly valuable and influential in the early and later stages of
his life, in understanding how people react and express emotions through music.
Despite growing up with access to music, musical instruments and musicians,
being a member of the junior and youth choirs at church, a drummer in marching
bands, and also performed as a delegate for his school in talent competitions –
Marvin had still not expressed any ambition or desire to pursue a career in music.
