Mark Trone is an independent singer/songwriter/producer of alternative pop music, who currently resides in Tampa, Florida. Originally from rural Illinois, long gloomy Midwest winters and humid scorching summers provided a distinct contrast and thereby shaped his songwriting style. Much of the early songs were dark and heavy, but as time passed the music became more and more melodic and lighter. Eventually, the sound evolved into a blend of catchy pop melodies and driving rock rhythms. “Embrace The Rain” was Mark’s first commercial album; released in the summer of 2012 on a self-made label, World Of Tomorrow Records, LLC. The thirteen song self-produced project started in 2009 in a loft apartment in the Soulard district of St. Louis, Missouri, and ended nearly two and a half years later across the river in a townhouse in Illinois. A music video for the single, “Just Another Night” was produced and released with the album.
In 2013, the single, “World Party”, was released with no content video attached. This song demonstrated an apparent change in musical direction. While the “Embrace The Rain” album encompassed a retro feel, which was almost a throwback to the 1980’s decade of A.O.R., “World Party” sports a very modern alternative pop sound. It is a beat driven track that uses heavy synthesizers and is less than three minutes runtime. The message of the song is upbeat and positive, which is in contrast to the emotionally painful tone of “Embrace The Rain”. “World Party” likely foreshadows a retooling of Mark’s sound. In April 2014, “Howard Stern Song” was released. The song is a high energy and quirky homage to the Howard Stern Show.
In April of 2015 Mark returns with the single, “Here In This Moment”. It is a light and airy love song, which highlights a special day on the beach with someone special. A music video was released featuring a young couple having fun in the sun at the beach. The video was filmed mostly in Clearwater, Florida and also in a few other Florida locations.
Aside from music, Mark enjoys photography, motorcycle rides, cinema, and exploring new places.
