Jesse Markin became known for his critically acclaimed duo act The Megaphone State, but he went solo a few years ago. It paid off: he was awarded as the newcomer of the year and critics’ choice at last year’s Emma awards gala. He also arrived in Finnish people’s living rooms on the Dancing with the Stars television show. Markin’s music video for Blood has been awarded at Oulu Music Video Festival. The Liberian-born artist has huge potential to make it internationally, as well.
