When the duo Markey Blue was first formed to “write a few songs” and do “a few club dates” this musical pair had no idea what a fast riding journey it would become
The Nashville based duo of Markey and Ric Latina have a combined performing/touring history that reads like a “who’s who” in the entertainment industry.
Markey had accumulated a wealth of experience performing before she became a songwriter. Her career ignited as a showgirl in Las Vegas, which led to appearances around the world. Next, she turned to acting in film and television before embracing stand-up comedy. By the time Markey turned to music as her full-time artistic outlet, she had become one of the country’s top female impressionists and received the honor of accepting for Gracie Allen, when inducted into the Radio Hall of Fame.
Once on the Blues path, Markey quickly became a rising talent in the roots music world — performing with Taj Mahal, Candye Kane, Walter Trout, Delbert McClinton, Anson Funderburgh and Bobby “Blue” Bland — before joining with Latina to form Markey Blue.
