The head of music for londonfm.digital said that he loved the new single ‘Heaven’ from ‘Markus Cairns’ with it’s melodic guitars, lovely heartfelt distinctive vocals and dreamy production, that meanders down a country music road, with great solos to lift your mood, inspire you and touch your heart. A great cover version that honours and lives up to the original. For that reason we have placed it on the daily playlist and it will be played 2-3 times a day in general rotation + as a special ‘Country’ powerplay every day at approx 4 PM UK time for a month or more.
Markus Cairns is a country music independent artist from Northern Ireland.
Growing up he had a stammer, where he lacked in speaking he found he can express himself through singing, say the things he wants to say without having to change difficult words or change the conversation.
His inspirations are Celine Dion, Mariah Carey, Steps, Five and Blue. Markus came across country music by accident, switching on a Radio show and from the day he heard Josh Turner’s “Why Don’t We Just Dance” that was him hooked to county music and opened a new genre to explore.
