The Markus Meo story the twists and turns along the way.

At just 13 years of age he was in a horrific car accident with his father after hitting six cattle at night on a main highway, they were both extremely lucky to survive.

At 27  he had a major mental emotional break down suffering from severe depression, through counselling, positive thinking and practising meditation a new spiritual journey of healing and self discovery would begin.  

In January of 1993 a devastating boat accident would be the next twist of fate that would not only have a profound effect on Markus but on his family too. They were on a family fishing trip at sea when a few giant freak waves came from no where putting a hole at the back of the boat , the family finally had to leave the boat after bailing out water for 6 hours and then have to tread water for another 16 hours in extreme wild weather conditions, they also lost a great friend as the night unfolded., they were lucky enough to be rescued by a helicopter the next morning but suffered from over exhaustion and hypothermia during the ordeal.

An interesting work history having a paper round at 11 yr's of age  helped to buy his first real drum kit. He has worked as a Retail Assistant , A Delivery Driver , A Foreman Factory Worker , A Hotel House Keeper , A Store Man , A Security Guard & pretty much everything in between..  

In 1994 was the loss of his father at only age 49 in a fire accident which came as a great sadness as they were both so passionate about music and had this in common. His father loved playing the piano accordion & the electric organ, the best memories of his father will always be what Markus calls the radio station days.

Born in Glasgow Scotland ( Mark Alexander Sinclair ) he adopted his grand fathers middle name Meo as a unique music stage name. He migrated to Australia with his parents at an early age and during this time became a member of a pipe band learning and playing side drums.During his childhood years he grew up in a radio station assisting his father who was a volunteer radio announcer at a community station in Darwin which exposed him to many different artists such as Cat Stevens , James Taylor , Roy Orbison , Jim Croce ,Fleetwood Mac, Phil Collins , The Eagles , Eva Cassidy , Neil Diamond, Van Morrison & so many more. After playing in a pipe band for three years Markus went on to explore kit drumming performing with various bands as a drummer .

 

A self taught guitarist at age fifteen Markus started incorporating his own sense of rhythm into his guitar playing , giving him the ability to improvise and express his own unique style of playing & developing his own style of song writing.
