Listen to “Emerald” from Markus Strothmann and follow him on Spotify. Lyrics for this track by Suzanne Savage.
Markus’s mother is originally from Westport and having family in Ireland it is a very special place to him. Inspired by his Irish roots, Markus instilled his compositions with an intriguing Celtic flavour. The deep atmosphere of his music evokes images of the rough Irish Sea, massive coastal lines and distant landscapes. Emerald Green.
