Update, Oct 2009:

I’m proud to say after months & months of hard work & recording & tweaking & finessing & artwork & photoshoots & legal and more, my new album “The Sea Before Us” is finished, produced and will be available for sale any day now. The album was written during my two years living in Santa Monica, recorded in Hollywood and produced by the amazing duo of Rob Giles (of The Rescues) and Rich Jacques. The guys helped me bring my music to a whole new level, and I couldn’t be happier with the results. We were even able to get it mastered by multiple Grammy winner Gavin Lurssen (who mastered the Robert Plant/ Alison Kraus album), so it’s been in good hands. It’s my first full-studio effort, and a big departure from the stripped-down sound of “All I Can Remember,” but I think you’ll dig the results. I’ve been playing a lot more piano these last few years, so get ready for a few piano-based songs as well.

Use the player in the upper left corner to preview all the tracks, and stay tuned for news about its availability. Live performance dates coming soon!


There’s a pic below of the 3 of us in the studio,  and you can check out a behind-the-scenes video of the making of “The Sea Before Us” here:

biography
Mark’s journey hasn’t been the typical path of most singer/ songwriters.

He didn’t grow up in New York, LA or Nashville. He wasn’t born to musician parents. Or enrolled in music classes from age five and on. He didn’t go to Berkeley, or have an uncle in the record biz, or take lessons from Shawn Mullins.

He grew up in a small town in Maine, spent all his time devoted to sports, and didn’t even pick up a guitar until he was 17. And he worked for years as an English teacher & professional writer before ever writing his first song.

In a world of teenage American Idol winners, Mark was a late-bloomer.

But maybe that’s what the music world could use a little more of.

But he did have 10 years of living in various cities in every corner of the country to draw from. Hardship & heartbreak as a teacher working with troubled teens. Exploits as a traveling writer in Europe. Star-crossed relationships. Epic road trips. Failed jobs. And a lot of hard-won knowledge of the self.

But he was always making music on the side. And always in love with melody. Whether from the countless Beatles & Eagles albums his father played in the house growing up, or the endless spins of U2, Crowded Hou... (+) expand

Yeah, this place doesn't make a lot of sense! From a listeners point of view I have noticed that waiting is the best thing for an artist, but the key is to find the happy medium. Unfortunately you have not made it to the homepage and I'm not sure why. But usually the answer is to upload another song as soon as you hit the homepage because then you are at the forefront for getting attention.

(continued) - If I were you I would upload a new song every 3 weeks or so... Often enough that you are not forgotten, but too often so that the listeners feel bombarded. That's just my opinion though and I am still fairly new here, so... in the end do what you need to do and I will keep an eye out for ya!
