Markus is a singer, songwriter and actor based in Manila, Philippines. One of the original 8 artists that launched Tarsier Records in 2017, Markus has released several singles with Tarsier Records to date, including “WIWU”, “EASE”, and “Tell Me”, all of which were all positively received by digital streaming platforms, playlists, and fans alike. “Beautiful” (2019) with Inigo Pascual, Moophs, and Kyler placed at the top of local releases on Spotify’s New Music Friday, and has been included in over 600 user-generated and editorial playlists to date.
In late December of 2019, Markus gave the world its first peek at an all-acoustic EP called “B-SIDE” with lead single “Best Wishes”, followed by “Poem” (January 2020), with the former charting on Spotify’s Viral 50 Philippines and raced its way to become his most streamed song on the platform recently reaching 1M streams. “WDYG” with Moophs also became one of his fastest-rising tracks with multiple Spotify playlist placements throughout the region, earning them the coveted cover for “OPM Rising” and over 100K streams in less than 4 weeks. At ease in the year of quarantine, Markus has since released his B-SIDE EP in October of 2020 – his first body of work showing nothing but potential to become one of the biggest acoustic acts in Southeast Asia. Since the project's release, the EP garnered over 5 million streams solely on Spotify.
Outside of the recording studio, Markus is a TV and movie actor in high demand, most notably in “Ang Babaeng Allergic sa Wi-Fi” (The Girl Allergic to Wi-Fi), and the highly-acclaimed first original Filipino Netflix Film, “Dead Kids", "Hello Stranger: The Movie", an upcoming digital-to TV series on the first half 2021. He has recently starred in hit TV series “Viral Scandal” and “Teen Clash.” He has upcoming shows in the pipeline, and has been balancing his work with being a first-time father.
