Mark Lynch, solo guitarist / Bio

MARK LYNCH is a western NC native who has played and taught guitar professionally for over 35 years. Many thousands of hours practicing & performing, hundreds of venues, dozens of bands/duos & styles covered... his experience is on display in this solo project.

Currently based in Wilmington NC, in his relatively short time at the coast Mark has impressed area musicians and club owners with his finesse on the instrument. Backing up 6 different singers in duo settings, as well as forming two bands, he's developed an excellent reputation for his versatility in various genres and for being so easy to work with.

Developing a solo, all-instrumental repertoire would seem to be a natural evolution, and Mark considers it the direction for his future as a musician.

"I still enjoy interacting with other musicians, of course.. and will continue to do so, but I've played in so many groups. I've 'been there and done that' now for decades. This is my chance to cover my favorite songs, pay tribute to all my guitar heroes, do my own arrangements, even throw some of my original stuff into the mix.."

Sometimes less is more, and simple is best.. "It's so great to walk in to a venue, set up an amplifier and a few pedals, then plug a guitar in and be ready to perform. The patrons can decide for themselves what level of attention to pay to the music, because I'm not overly loud and in-their-face. If I'm helping create a pleasant atmosphere while they're dining or socializing with their friends, that's reward enough for me."

Mark is especially thankful to his wife Debra, who handles booking, promotion, and videography/photography for this and other projects, which include the "plan: B duo" and a 4-piece band "DANGERS of STEREO". (Both also have profiles here on ReverbNation).
