Jesse Markin in interview: "Folk" - A debut album with expressiveness
When did your heart start beating for music and did you always want to become a musician?
Music has always played a big role in my life. I have been making music professionally since 2003. At that time I also started studying graphic design at the same time, which I successfully completed in 2006. But music became more and more important as time went on.
Your debut album "Folk" was released in May 2019. What songs await the listener? And what inspired you to write the songs?
"Folk" is an album full of experimental sounds, especially in terms of very different genres, and it also has a very important message. It is: We humans have much more things in common than things that divide us and we should just focus much more on these things that bring us together.

With Lina Maly from Elmshorn, one of the most exciting and at the same time charming and down-to-earth musicians in German-language pop music will be playing at NORDEN - The Nordic Arts Festival 2021. With "Könnten Augen alles sehen" she is not simply releasing a second album. She also further establishes herself as a strong, independent artist, as a champion of the beauty of the imperfect and as an instance of sincerity in German pop music..
After intensive discussions with the city and the state and after weighing up the risks, we unfortunately have to inform you that we are not able to hold NORDEN - The Nordic Arts Festival 2020 under the current circumstances: With a heavy heart we have to cancel the festival for this year and postpone it to 26.08 to 12.09.2021.
