About

Songsta is Steve Marquis - composer, producer, arranger and multi-instrumentalist. Songsta has written and produced music for artists, film, TV and advertising in between gigging as a freelance bassist on the Melbourne and Sydney music scenes. Writing in all styles from pop to electronica and blues to jazz and groove, the Songsta soundscape is diverse and far-reaching.

After years of working behind the scenes, Steve Marquis embarked on the Songsta project in 2007 to produce and release his extensive back catalogue of songs. With the first CD, 'Sampla', there is a taste of all the musical styles in the Songsta repertoire. The second release 'Jazzsta' explores a cool swing sound while 'Groovsta', the third release, has an acoustic roots funk 'n grooves vibe.

2015 saw the release of Bluesta which ranges form raw Delta-blues influenced sounds through to pumping band tracks. Currently underway are the Acousta and Popsta collections. After a hiatus and a worldwide pandemic, late 2023 will see the release of Acousta followed by Popsta in 2024.
