8th in my series of young finnish men, i look for the essence of finnishness in them.
Markus, 28, is one of my all time favorite singers. bands change, but i seem to like whatever he does. it's the soft, in some way almost fragile voice that is enchanting, along with the emotional melodies he plays with a guitar. i would describe Markus as a peaceful, artistic person with a lot of good will and some sort of hopefulness. i was glad to hear he's determined to pursue his musical career now, as i'm certain that not only his music but also friendly and humble attitude will attract many.
