"Confetti on the Highway…" great title for a song. Seems, whether you know it or not, that you are like an Americana-Roots version of the late-great English singer-songwriter Nick Drake. If you are complimented by my comparison with Nick Drake you will known that his recordings — his voice — were warm. Your vocal suits that as well — in its sincerity and the lyrics in their poignancy. You have that subdued, melodic and compelling style similar to his. By the way, “When Things Are Good," that one’s excellent. You fall somewhere in that Nick Drake-Townes Van Zandt-John Prine category.

“Mark Mazzu is a unique singer songwriter that's gentle & melodic approach to his craft sets him apart from his contemporaries. The New Light Coffeehouse is always grateful for his spirit and songs of praise to God.”
New Light Coffeehouse - Christ United Methodist, Sugar Land, TX
“Get your hands on this CD! It's simple, acoustic rock that draws up old memories of life, lost love, and better times. Take some James Taylor, a little Bob Dylan, add a dash of Dan Fogelberg, mix well and pour out a heaping glass of cool Mazzu.”
Johnson Ferry Baptist Church, Marietta, Georgia
“In the spirit of folk music's current resurrgence into mainstream, "Confetti" marks a change in Mazzu's artistry, while reminding us of Mazzu's textured heritage, deeply felt, thought provoking lyrics are a glimpse into the heart of a pilgrim. Anyone who has wrestled with the issues of love lost, the mystery of God and life's endless paradoxes will find common ground here. Moreover, anyone who enjoys James Taylor's simplicity or Dylan's poetic lyrics, will appreciate "Confetti's" beauty. Especially sublime is the instrumental that closes this album -- simple, yet startling.”
Better Days, Kingwood, Texas
“We always look forward to having Mark Mazzu at our Kick Back Koffee House. His music is both thought-provoking and fun. He’s a very gifted musician and song writer who blesses his audience each and every time he performs. His ministry is one that touches your soul through his music.”
Kickback Koffee House, Houston, Texas
“In some ways Mark Mazzu sounds like James Taylor & America. The guitar on this album is soothing and strong.The message of surrender is sweet and delicately rich. There is a great and sustaining love here. There is a stunning simplicity here that has not been felt since Phil Keaggy’s and Randy Stonehill’s earliest recordings. A truly beautiful and honest album.
