“Led by Canadian Markus Michelucci, Sound Refuge is an eclectic mix of performers who come together to play engaging, thoughtful folk music from the calm and reassuring to the passionate and cerebral. They create an alluring world of instrumentation with powerful lead moments, harmonies and hopeful, inspiring lyrics. Often likened to Cat Stevens, James Taylor and Passenger.
Markus Michelucci & Sound Refuge perform at festivals & events throughout the UK such as Barnival, Greenwich Tall Ships Festival, Rochester Sweeps Festival, the Minehead Musicians Festival and more. Markus has performed live on BBC Radio, Shoreditch Radio and regularly on the streets of London at Borough Market, Southbank Centre and London Farmers Markets. Having toured France last summer, they’ll be touring Germany later this year to support the new release. The duo also performed for Sofar Sounds in Edinburgh early this year!
