I had a chance to sit down and discuss my new album "Saint Unity" with STL Post Dispatch's Kevin Johnson.
Ryan Marquez's latest single "Serenity", incorporates the spirit and larger narrative of the current artistic renaissance and cultural climate present in St. Louis. Produced by the legendary Carl Nappa and Lenny Mink for Lotown Records, the album features 20 vocalists and musicians powering Ryan’s originals and jazz interpretations of hits from the world of rock - including songs from Smashing Pumpkins, 311, The Beatles, and more. Mr. Marquez sits squarely in the center of the upswing of creative energy in STL and brings together an all-star team of musicians in the name of “Saint Unity”.

This album has a little bit for everyone. Recorded in 2020, it captures some playful jazz renditions of some classic popular music from the 60s/70s. Including some of Ryan's favorite songs from his parents record collection, . A deep cut McCoy Tyner tune, a jazz standard from Dave Brubeck and a Marquez original round out the record.
