About Marvin Sease
Marvin Sease (born February 16, 1946 in Blackville, South Carolina),[1] is blues/soul singer known for his racy lyrics.

Sease started as a gospel artist, joining a gospel group called the Five Gospel Crowns located in Charleston, South Carolina. After singing with them, Marvin then left at age 20 for New York City. At this young age settling into New York, he then joined another gospel group called the Gospel Crowns. Having the deep preference for the musical style of R&B, Marvin left the gospel circuit to form his own R&B group. In this group Marvin Sease was accompanied by his own three brothers and named the backing band Sease. This band did not find popularity and eventually broke up. He did not quit performing musically, but began to cover songs that started a career with a recurring gig at the Brooklyn club Casablanca. Marvin, however, desired his own success singing his own music and greater artistic freedom.

In 1986 he recorded a self titled L.P. featuring one of his more popular songs, “Ghetto Man”. This started his current professional career with his fans in the South’s circuit of bars, blues festivals, and juke joints.

While promoting his self produced and publicized L.P. he entered a record contract with Polygram Records. With this contract, he was able to launch his music nationally with the re-release of his self titled L.P. on Mercury Records in 1987. This updated release of his previous material also included the new ten minute track “Candy Licker,” which became an instant success for Sease through the South.

Success had finally came to Sease even without the help of radio airplay which deemed his sound too explicit for the audience. Over the next decade Sease would release several more records for Mercury and Jive Records, which ranked on the Billboard R&B chart and pop charts. Sease’s success, however, has most notably been linked with his chart topping song “Candy Licker” and has ensured a strong female based following.

He is said to have had a comparable sound to the likes of Johnnie Taylor and Tyrone Davis

19. Debra - August 25, 2011

To Marvin’s son Mark and old road manager and band, “All My Love” from Marvin’s old friend Debra. I had spoke with him to answer his calling in ministry from the time we 1st met yrs ago, when he said he had a calling on his life, You could here in some of his songs, cause I excepted mine. He said something was different about me and I found out through God whom I put my trust. He said he ask God to give him more time. Time waits on no one. I pray he rest in peace and may the peace and blessings of God be upon your life. I pray all of you surrender your lives to God cause we do not know the day nor hour we have to give up this life but to live in eternity with Christ, is something to look forward to and we will see Marvin again.
