Ever since Marcos was a child he had a true passion for music. His love for music wasn’t a phase, because he continued to play throughout the years and is now one of Tejano music best known artists. Every day he works hard in composing new music and writing new songs –his life and passion.
His career began as the lead vocalist for Los Fabulosos Cuatro in 1989. He recorded three CDs with them; Alma Rota, Simplemente Fabulosos, and On Our Own. In 1993, Marcos joined David Lee Garza & Los Musicales as their lead vocalist for six years. With Los Musicales, he recorded six CDs: Silver Edition, Ya Me Canse, Algo Diferente, Tejano Class, Tour 98, and Nadie Como Yo. Marcos also was Los Musicales’ main songwriter. He wrote hits such as, “Para Ti”, “Preciosa”, “Tengo Ganas”, and many others. While Marcos was with Los Musicales, he won numerous amount of awards from the Texas Talent Musicians Association, BMI awards for his songs: “Tu Boca Roja” and “Una Noche Más”. He also received a Grammy nomination for the CD “Nadie Como Yo.” After Marcos recorded his last CD with Los Musicales, he became a soloist.
Marcos was the first artist to sign under Catalina Records. Shortly after he signed with Catalina Records, he formed his own group, Grupo Rebelde. In 2001, they released their first CD which was entitled “Ahora Y Siempre Simplemente Marcos!” Five of the songs were written by the talented Orozco. In 2002, Grupo Rebelde put out their second CD entitled “A Mi Manera” –to which Marcos contributed three of the songs. Marcos released his third CD in 2003, and is entitled “Paso a Paso.” It features twenty of his greatest hits with Los Fabulosos Cuatro, David Lee Garza & Los Musicales, and his group, Grupo Rebelde. Eight of the songs on “Paso A Paso” were written by Marcos. His fourth CD, “Sentimientos,” really showcases his versatile musical ability. Recently, Marcos & Rebelde established their own indie record label, Oromar Records and have released their latest project, “Un Paso Más.”
After being nominated three times by the Tejano Music Awards for Most Promising Band, Grupo Rebelde finally achieved their goal and won at the 24th Annual Tejano Music Awards.
