About The Album:
Together with Lewis and Veal, Markovic is paving a new path, bringing Gospel to his listeners in a whole new way with Jesus Saves. With elaborate and complex rhythms, he seems to push the limits on time signatures, mixing and matching to produce a fresh approach to Gospel. This is something you have to listen to – Gospel has not been presented in this way before!
Uros Markovic has been a fascinating presence on the New York music scene since his arrival in 2000. He is a musician that has been the talk of the town, and people cannot help but wonder who he really is.
Uros has a unique perspective on performing music and has been hailed as a polyrhythmic wizard. Uros has been playing in homeless shelters and rehab centers and is a member of the ministry team at Bowery Mission and New York City Rescue Mission. Currently his life story is the theme for an upcoming feature film.
