JOHN MARK NORRIS / Bio

I WAS BORN IN A LITTLE TOWN IN TENNESSEE CALLED LIVINGSTON IN 1964. LIVED THERE TILL 1976 MOVED TO MCMINNVILLE TENNESSEE WHERE I NOW RESIDE. I'VE ALWAYS HAD A LOVE FOR MUSIC. STARTED WRITING MY OWN SONGS WHEN I WAS 13 IM NOW 49 THE SONG "WITHOUT A TRACE" IS ONE I WROTE WHEN I WAS 15 MY MOM ALWAYS LOVES TO HEAR ME PLAY IT FOR HER.THE SONG" NOW THEIR GONE" WAS WRITTEN FOR ALL MY FRIENDS AND FAMILY WHO WERE TAKEN AWAY WAY TOO SOON IN THEIR LIVES. I KNOW GOD HAS A MASTER PLAN FOR EVERYONE BUT AS YA'ALL KNOW ITS SO HARD TO TAKE WHEN YOU LOSE A LOVED ONE.MY BACKGROUND VOCALIST ON THIS SONG IS DAWN GANT GOODWIN I MET HER IN HIGH SCHOOL HAD A PUPPY LOVE CRUSH ON HER WE FOUND OUT WE WERE BETTER AS FRIENDS THAN LOVERS WE HAVE BEEN FRIENDS FOR 33 YEARS. ALL OF MY SONGS HAVE A PERSONAL MEANING BEHIND THEM THATS THE ARTIST THAT I AM I WRITE FROM EXPERIENCE. ONE OF THE SONGS I WROTE FOR MY LAST WIFE "BROKEN DREAMS AND PROMISES" SHE CRIED AND SAID WHY DIDNT YOU WRITE THAT BEFORE I LEFT YOU? I SIMPLY TOLD HER I COULDNT HAVE BECAUSE IT TOOK HER LEAVING TO PUT THE EMOTIONS AND WORDS TO A SONG. I LATER WROTE "LOSING YOUR MEMORY" FOR THE SAME GIRL. MY WRITING SOMETIMES COMES AS LYRICS FIRST THEN THE MUSIC THEN SOMETIMES I WILL COME ACROSS A CERTAIN SOUND THEN PUT WORDS TO IT AS I DID WHEN I WAS JUST FOOLING AROUND ONE AFTERNOON AND WROTE "BABY BABY NOW" AND "DANITA'' I WROTE SEPTEMBER 2013 FOR A WOMAN THAT HAD A CRUSH ON ME SINCE HIGH SCHOOL AND I NEVER KNEW,BUT FATE BROUGHT US TOGETHER AND SHE WANTED HER SONG SO THERE IT IS "DANITA". I WILL BE MAKING AND SHARING VIDEOS TO MY SONGS VERY SOON SO WATCH FOR THEM. GODSPEED TO ALL MY FELLOW MUSICIANS AND PRODUCERS,WRITERS AND PROMOTERS AND LAST BUT CERTAINLY NOT LEAST THE FANS WITHOUT YOU WE COULDNT BE US.
