Kartez Marcel

Kartez Marcel, a native of Kansas City, Missouri is a recording artist, musician, songwriter and
overall creative visionary. In addition to being the co-founder of the League of Lifestyles, a
company that provides resources to artists and assists with bringing their artistic visions to life,
he also serves as the Director of Audio Visual at a large organization.
Kartez has performed at a wide array of venues across the Midwest, bringing experience,
professionalism, talent and musical genius to the stage in every performance. As an artist that
challenges the status quo, he seeks to provide the highest quality sound, delivery and visuals at
each show. Though a rising star in the local arena he sets his standards high and mentally
challenges himself to deliver lyrical prose and sonically mature material that holds its weight
against some of the most respected award-winning artists.
Kartez’s passion for artistic expression and vision not only led him to establish the League of
Lifestyles, but also guides him in working to ensure generations that follow have access to
unique and relevant mediums of expression. As such Kartez has partnered in the delivery of
M.E.D.I.A over the past several years, which is an after/in-school program designed to expose
local students to various facets of the music industry while providing practical experience they
can apply both in and out of creative spaces.
Kartez was educated in the Kansas City and Hickman Mills School Districts, and later attended
college at Full Sail University in Orlando, Florida where he studied music production and sound
