Timeka Marshall was born on February 14th, 1989 in Georgetown, Guyana and is taking the reggae music world by storm. This versatile singer/songwriter got her break into the music industry after winning a jingle competition for a local telecommunications company.
Since winning the jingle competition, Timeka has evolved as an artist. Her music is a fusion of reggae/ dancehall rhythms mixed with R&B vocal style. With her name generating buzz in Guyana, Timeka was keen to cultivate her songwriting talents and attended the Barbados Music Seminar and Showcase in 2007. There she blew regional and international music executives away with her obvious talent and enticing sensuality. Performing the gritty dancehall track ”Nothing At All”, Timeka was immediately signed to a developmental deal which would see her working with some of Jamaica’s top producers.
Timeka’s commitment and hard work in the months she spent in Jamaica has paid off, with the release of two singles – “Free” and “Ice-cream Boy” (a fresh taste on a classic) produced by international reggae producer Clive Hunt and his team of talented musicians. Her relationship with Jamaica and the treasure trove of musicians, directors and producers there continues to grow. As soon as the two singles were in heavy rotation on Guyana’s airwaves, Timeka returned to Jamaica to continue recording. This dedication is a clear indication of her intention to take her music throughout the region and beyond and add to the growing list of Caribbean artistes who now rank among the international superstars of the entertainment industry.
Back in Guyana, Timeka was the recipient of two awards at the Guyana Music Awards for Best New Artist and R&B Artist of the Year. Timeka has released a number of hit songs to date and recently released the “Under Cover Lady” Official Music Video, which can be seen on her YouTube Channel.
When Timeka is not in the studio, she can be found gracing the catwalk of numerous fashion shows as one of the most sought after models in the Guyanese fashion industry.
