MARKIAN is a solo artist that combines EDM (Electronic Dance Music) with lead guitar for a unique sound that will have you instantly addicted. Coining the term 'ShrEDM' as a name for this newly born genre, MARKIAN is for fans of dubstep and other EDM sub-genres as well as anyone who appreciates metal influenced shred guitar solos. After 2 years of creating the perfect niche sound, his debut EP appropriately titled 'This is ShrEDM' was released February 25, 2014. These massive bass drops and lightning speed guitar solos are a real treat, but to fully experience the magic of this new music you really have to see a MARKIAN show for yourself. This is no ordinary solo artist, and after listening you’ll realize immediately that MARKIAN is the fresh new sound you've long been waiting for.
