Mark Sexton Band / Press

“The Mark Sexton Band (TMSB) is another great classic blue-eyed soul band whose sound is 100% live and 100% rhythm and blues in its rawest form. On their latest EP, LISTEN OUT, the Reno based soul band offers a brand of funky soul music that helps to fill a major void in the R&B/Soul genre. "Your Love Never Shows" is one of my favorites by TMSB. This song bears the soul of a man who is in touch with his heart, and on the song Mark shares how he feels about not being able to see the love his lady says she has for him. This is a well written song that embodies great musicianship, songwriting and overall production. Mark's vocal performance is pretty good too, which only makes the music and lyrical content that much more enjoyable. This song is very good and I enjoyed listening to it.”

“The Mark Sexton Band’s Listen Out is a truly professional offering. These musicians prove beyond any doubt that they can hit a groove and make the music sing. In this day and age when style tends to win over substance, it is refreshing to hear talented musicians do it the way it should be done. It is also a breath of fresh air to come upon music unencumbered by too much studio wizardry. For instance, when was the last time you heard R&B songs that didn’t have guest rappers all over them? Heck, there isn’t even any guest DJs, for that matter. Skilled musicians like these can always let their talent speak for itself. With Listen Out, this is one project where music substance triumphed over pop music fashion. If such victories happened more often, there might be far fewer grumpy music critics working the computer keyboard these days.”

Dan MacIntosh - Independant Review

“The Mark Sexton Band's Listen Out is an accomplished LP that's a giant step forward in concept, creativity and technical execution for the talented young collegiates. Listen Out captures the warmth and tone of great studio records of the 70's soul era.”

“The age and youthful appearance of the band belies the sound of their songs. They refer to vinyl and “good old-fashioned music” when talking about their new album. It combines rock with R&B and a little bit of funk with the result being a mellow listening experience. The influence of the older music comes through, as well as their dedication to their art, and literally gives it soul. ”
