"My son Dave and I ended up at the castle one evening, looking for an interesting setting. The light through the trees made it rather surreal and Dave really loved it," explains Markus about why the Denia Castle grounds was the location for this video.

As a songwriter, Markus experiments with many styles of music, however his choice for this song was a deep blues genre.



 "Real blues (not the middle of the road stuff) comes from the soul, especially in a song like this," he admits.

"It's the melancholy that comes through in the way you bend the notes."
