markús brought along quite the accompaniment for his edition of our sessions - both himself and his guitar (most important), a violinist, drummer and double bassist. It was the biggest 'set' we had over the summer, but a warm sound that filled the room.
through one project or another, markús has been a mainstay of the reykjavík music scene, in particular, on the folk scene - with old band the diversion sessions.
there is a wit about markús when he performs that is both charming and incisive. his energy is clear to see. there is so much passion, and understandably so, for "we're here only for a short time..."
"in a way, a place, where everything happens - and everything is just the way you dreamed it would be. Or you feel completely content, all your dreams, like, you're fulfilled - you fit completely."
