To be honest it has been a long time coming. Finally, with Markus Bjarnason, we have a classic singer/song writer to add to the armoury of the Lucky Records Sessions.
Those considered vocal hooks draw you in to the stories he tells in his song writing craft but it’s the unanswered questions in the guitar riffs that I love. Markus plays guitar solos like the acoustic equivalent of the script of the Bodyguard. That’s all your getting, now fill in the blanks yourself. It’s a beautiful imperfect balance.
It’s a brave man that tackles the threadbare trinity of man, guitar and song. When it comes to making music, Markus Bjarnason stands alone.
