Markus Feehily in Session on BFBS

Former Westlife singer, Markus Feehily, talks to Jason Webster about being in a world-famous boy band and his new direction.

“When you meet someone who has had such a huge career in the music industry you never know what they're going to be like, but I've never met such a down to earth person,” said Jason.

“He was in one the biggest boy bands on the planet and still has the natural singing talent to have an illustrious future as a solo artist.”

Markus performs a live session in the Forces Radio BFBS studios – including 'Butterfly' his first solo single – and explains that some tracks on his debut album are about the “tougher” side of relationships.

He discusses pep talks from Louis Walsh, being co-managed by Ronan Keating, his stint at festivals with his mobile food van, and selects music that has influenced his life.

Jason even gets a lesson in the art of delivering a key change while stepping off a bar stool – all choreographed to hit record 'You Raise Me Up'.
