"Mark is a singer/songwriter whose music has traveled from the hills of Oklahoma to the shores of the Pacific Ocean. Influenced by such greats as Woody Guthrie, Bob Dylan, Neil Young and Willie Nelson, Mark nurtures their heritage of storyteller and poet. Using a voice that enfolds the listener in depth of emotion, Mark creates a straight-talking Western/ American style of music which has become his own rich, signature sound.
Some are blessed with a voice to sing and some are blessed with words that touch our hearts. Mark is blessed with the talents of both!"
This is on my band's reverbnation page, and it seems to work well.
However, as with all promotional tools, there may be a bit of exaggeration here. Actually, I'm a guy who works in a factory during the day and plays and writes music at night. I've raised two kids and have been married 23 years to the same woman and am very proud of it. I've been fortunate enough to work with some of the best musicians in and around San Diego including the guys in my current lineup. I've worked with Randy Sterling (one time guitarist and bass player for Neil Diamond) who co-produced my first record "Vigilante Road" and Alan Sanderson (the Rolling Stones, Ryan Adams, Elvis Costello . . .) who mixed my second record "Love may take the long road Home" and co-produced my third record "A Real Charmed Life".
Yes, I've been blessed with good friends and supporters and am grateful.
