Mr. Marvin Douglas Floyd

Marvin Douglas Floyd was born and grew up in Long Island New York. He began playing the organ at the age of six after being inspired by his older brothers who were also in the music field. Music was something that was always encouraged in his home. By the age of 12, he was in his first band. As a teenager he started writing and composing music, and found himself frequenting local recording studios.

He was hired by an independent label I.M.G. Records to track, duplicate and write music for that label. After working there for several months, he knew this was the area that he wanted to pursue and decided to open his own recording studio, Nivram Productions, in downtown Glen Cove. It was here he had the opportunity to hone his skills and work with others. Soon his reputation for writing, composing and producing music began to grow and earned him a house hold name.

Marvin Floyd became a local favorite for his style of playing and soon he would be in the company of such legends as Clark Terry, Quincy Jones, Al Jarrea, Michael Jackson. Keeping company with theses greats influenced Marvin’s style of playing

Marvin’s success continued with becoming the MUSICAL DIRECTOR for Hip Hop princess and Actress Ashanti  Marvin produced  and co-wrote two (2) songs for the Life Time  Movie “Christmas in the city” along with a Christmas Cd . Marvin was recently touring around the world with Ashanti with her new CD release Braveheart in which he produced a record “R.I.P”
