Marko˙s professional music career

Biography - a short story

He started  classical training when he was nine and very soon after that discovered his love for guitar. Guitar greatly influenced the development of his violin expression.  
During the years 1993/94 Marko started his professional career in music. In those two years that he spent in South Africa he had the opportunity to join as a guitarist in a very popular band of "Kreesan". Back home in Šibenik he joined an Irish folk group “Secret Life” and recorded  an instrumental song called "Trlis" which became an immediate hit on the local radio stations and shortly after he signed himself as an author of music and words for "Green Song" which he recorded with Sean Cannon - The Dubliners. In ’99 he received an invitation from croatian pop star "Gibonni" to work on the album "Judi, zviri i beštimje".

After collaborating on the recording of Gibonni’s album "Mirakul" as a violinist and author of the theme "Ono nešto", he got to meet and work on the album  together with Manu Katche and Pino Paladino. New opportunities arose to work with gypsie jazz group "Hot Club Zagreb", with croatian jazz guitarist Mate Matišić and jazz quartet "Quartet Sensitive"on the album "Discussao".

During the period between 2006/2008 he worked on his second solo album "Rebaltadura" that was released in 2008 with Kristian Terzić - keyboards, Marko Matošević & Dalibor Dado Marinković - drums, Luka Veselinović & Marko Reljanović - bass, Nino Nimac - guitar & buzuki, Matija Dedić - piano, Matko Petrić - percussion.

His third solo album was released in 2015 "Mindset".  This new album was recorded in RSL studios (Novo Mesto, Slovenia).  Original compositions were recorded with amazing musicians from Croatia, Slovenia, France and Macedonia.
