He‘s been a constant member of the swiss folk sceen for the past 30 years and been moving around with the band Drumlin in Switzerland and Europe for almost 20 years. Further he was a member of bands as Baldrian, Clooney, Marcapella and Stei Oor. Markus is a great singer and guitar-player in the first place, but he plays all kind of other folkinstruments on his CD aswell. He‘s got a strong connection to Ireland having lived there for some times and 1980 he did his long march with an irish donkey "John O'Donoghue" and his guitar all the way through Ireland, Belgium and France to Switzerland.

2012 Markus released his 2-CD Album "Mission Earth" wich is available around the world now with the singer/songwriters very special message:

Mission Earth - a vision to share. May be you would even like to share this vision! It‘s easy though; just picture your vision of a positiv, enjoyable and livable future; think it, sing it, paint it, build it - feel it in your body and share your vision and creation. It‘s not a religion, a beliefsystem and you don‘t have to pay to be part of this common vision. Paint the Earth on your body if you fancy, talk to her and start taking care - think about the future and about the future of our children, take decisions, make steps, be creative! All I wish is you to share and paint this vision and to make a new, powerful experience: That we‘re not helpless but empowering eachother to creat a new climat of respect, love, care, fairness, health, wealth and spirit of peace into this world.
