National Arts in Education Week may be over, but the need to advocate the importance of music education presses on. Thus, our Ambassador Series continues! In our latest episode, we present Kerry “2 Smooth” Marshall, a talented and sought after guitarist, songwriter, and producer. His unique style and sound has afforded him the opportunities to play with Ledisi, Tyrese, Musiq Soulchild, Chrisette Michele, and a host of other artists.

Picking up a guitar at an early age, he became determined to make a difference in the world through his music.

“I feel like my story is a story where, like, I provide inspiration, I provide hope to let you know that if you follow your dreams, you can make it.”
