Jesse Markin is a Liberian-born singer-songwriter from Finland. Originally making his name as rapper for the group The Megaphone State - producing three critically-acclaimed hip-hop albums - his solo project moves him forward both musically and thematically, broadening his style from rapping to singing for the first time.With his solo project, Markin takes leaps forward both musically and thematically. “I wanted to approach serious topics with honest interpretations, topics like love, xenophobia, hope, lust for money, loneliness and brotherhood. These are things that affect me on a daily basis. Also, breaking my own limits was an important part of this project that I’ve been working on for the past four years. I love music and I hope people can feel that."
