"Mark's sound is an effusion- bridging him with the likes of Bob Dylan, Muddy Waters, Tom Petty, The Rolling Stones, Wilco, Tom Waits & The Replacements. He is a singer/songwriter & guitar/harmonica player. His songs can sometimes remind you of the opening scene of one of your favorite Coen Brothers' movies, and other times you get whisked away to a club in New Orleans- with a band playing sweet sounds as you dance the night away to this "tasty yet raspy" voice crooning everything from down home blues to original singer/songwriter material. Yet Mark is not just a fun and games man. He does have the ability to bring a ribald nature to his music; however, his lyrical imagery can also make you swoon with remembrance of things that you had long forgotten- things that bridge you with the unknown inside of yourself.
Mark was born in the Motor City and has lived & played music in the Monterey & Staunton/Waynesboro areas of Virginia- as well as in Athens, Georgia & Knoxville, Tennessee; The Florida Keys; Washington, D.C. & Asheville, N.C.. As of April 2014, he is a resident of New Orleans, LA/ and has begun working on his 5th solo CD. He also plans on putting together a new version of his old band "Locomotive Pie". Stay tuned for more details (& new music!)...
