Sherry Austin says, “Marky is a natural story-teller. There is an ease and familiarity with her songs that resonate within us all. They pull you in, rather than leave you on the outside observing. Her humor can be subtle, or whack you upside the head, but it’s always clever. Her performances are engaging, honest with a homey sensibility that will capture your heart.” http://www.markysmusic.com/ Tom Faia became known in Nashville and LA for his clever and infectious music. As a solo artist with A&M Records and a master songwriter, Tom wrote songs recorded by Country Music Hall of Fame inductee Barbara Mandrell and rock legend Dobie Gray. Today Tom is still writing classic good-feeling tunes, but this time he's performing them, too! "Tom Faia is truly an original, his lyrics and style prove it with every song and performance. Get ready to smile and dance !" -- Carl Weintrau http://tomfaia.com/
