New Single Release “Emerald” from Markus Strothmann

Markus Strothmann releases the title track of his new album of the same name “Emerald” today on all major streaming platforms. Markus was due to embark on a 7 date Irish / German Tour but like all jazz musicians the tour is postponed for a later date. In the meantime this gives you the chance to preview this amazing album with a fantastic band behind it so that when the tour does come up again you won’t hesitate to grab a ticket.

Listen to “Emerald” from Markus Strothmann and follow him on Spotify. Lyrics for this track by Suzanne Savage.
