There is no shortage of incredible talent in the music scene. However, being gifted is not enough for an aspiring artist to have a successful career. Cognizant of this, Marcus “writazblok” Henderson aims to guide the new generation of highly promising musicians.
The industry authority is a Super Producer and Music Business Enthusiast. His music knowledge and production talent earned him a seat at the executive table where he works to discover and create future talent. On top of that, he has a Master’s Degree in Entertainment Business from Full Sail University.
When asked what made him so successful, the insightful individual shared, “As a producer who is also a professional musician, I am not limited in my creative process to only make beats but can use my ears and hands to create whatever I want.” He also added, “I’m driven by my passion and faith and the desire to win/succeed and see things through to the end.”
Because of his excellent work ethic and talent, the producer’s work has grabbed the attention of listeners worldwide. Not only that, but his creations have also landed on Billboard Charts with placements ranging from R&B legends SWV to trendsetting City Girls and, most recently, gospel sensation Jessica Reedy.
Unlike other players in the industry who are only in it for the money, Marcus Henderson is exceptionally passionate about his craft. Looking back, he considers his early exposure to music and playing piano for his church as the spark that he needed to pursue his chosen path. But, more than anything, music is a way of life for the inspiring man, and as such, he aims to elevate the industry to greater heights.
Inspired by this incredible vision and armed by his wealth of knowledge, the innovative man founded the Music Industry Academy LLC. The venture provides a premiere intro to music business course for students aged 15 and up who have a career interest in music.
Sharing his motivation behind creating the brand, he profoundly explained, “Lack and necessity were the birthing formula for the creation of Music Industry Academy, LLC (MIA). As it relates to producing music, I have always been inspired and motivated by championing new sounds and the response and recognition from my peers.”
Through Marcus Henderson’s wisdom, he plans to transform a generation of music doers into industry professionals. With this outstanding mission, there is no doubt that a fresh breed of artists will emerge – talented individuals with a dedication to revolutionizing and pushing the boundaries of the music scene.
In the near future, the intuitive music producer and entrepreneur aims to collaborate with several successful ventures within the music and tech industries. But most importantly, he intends to grow his Academy to become the go-to choice for people who desire to learn the music business in a real and effective way.
