Markus is a professional bass player and an educated musician from Germany, born in the capital Berlin.
He grew up at his parents house and quickly found his place in the musician world, as he rocked pans and pots with chopsticks as a little child. Upon reaching the age of 11 he fell in love with the bass guitar, not bigger than the instrument itself. He liked playing the deep frequencies most of it all.
Financed by his gigs as a bassist, he graduated as a molecular biologist. He played more and more shows in Germany, Italy and Turkey becoming more famous while having recordings with Horazio "El Negro“ Hernandez, Giovanni Hidalgo and Gonzalo Rubalcaba. This led him to his current engagement with the german electro/pop band Glasperlenspiel including platinum and triple-gold records and #1-singles and albums as well as sold out tours and stadium shows.
He also endorses Eich Amps, Sandberg, Gewa Guitars, Elixir strings, Rimowa, Tech21nyc and In Ear.After german pro-player Markus Vieweg released his multimedial eBook "Next Steps in BASS" in Germany over a year ago, the great success led to the idea of an international version. Now it finally happens!
