Mark Ripp / Mark Ripp & The Confessors / Bio

I'm a singer songwriter in the Americana genre. My start was in the coffee houses of Toronto some thirty years ago. Those folk beginnings we're followed by a ten year run as front man and writer for Toronto roots rockers The Bel-Vistas. The last decade or so has been spent raising a family and pursuing music as a solo artist.

I record in my home studio now and am also involved in engineering and producing for others.

Influences are many but the ones who set the bar high for me include Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty, Bob Dylan, John Hiatt, Van Morrison and the always cool Nick Lowe.

My repertoire consists of original songs that span the length of my career as well as plenty of covers in the classic rock, pop, folk, blues, and country styles. I’m comfortable performing solo or with a band.
