The 30-year-old musician from Appenzell combines what actually seems incompatible at first glance: self-confident strength, vulnerability, and the courage to reveal his weaknesses. The trademark of his songs: they are always carried by his instantly recognizable power voice.
In 2019, he launched his first long player «Not Loud Enough» and won the Swiss Music Award in the category «Best Talent».
In 2020, Marius Bear caused quite a stir with his appearance on the RTL TV show «I Can See Your Voice». His powerful cover version of Whitney Houston's «I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Who Loves Me)» sweeps an audience of millions from their seats.
In March 2022, his second album, «Boys Do Cry» was released and reached the Top 5 of the Swiss long play charts.
Marius Bear is a romantic somewhere between brotherly buddy and passionate lover, whose songs sometimes tenderly embrace his listeners, sometimes go forward with energetic rock or sometimes ask them to dance with a wink.
With «Boys Do Cry», Marius Bear represented Switzerland at the Eurovision Song Contest 2022 and made it to the final. He now has hundreds of thousands of listeners and a total of over 22 million audio streams on Spotify and Apple Music.
His third album will be released in spring 2024.
