POP: Britpop, ROCK: Acoustic
At the age of eleven Mark found two things in his Mums cupboard. An original copy of The Beatles Sgt Peppers LP and the Clint Eastwood classic, “The Good, The Bad and The Ugly”. He listened to the album everyday and watched the film almost just as much and vowed to become one of two things; a Songwriter or a Cowboy. In case you hadn’t gathered, Mark currently has a guitar but he is yet to own a Stetson.
Mark went solo at the start of 2006. Leaving behind the small town of Maidstone in Kent, he headed for the bright lights of London to secure his musical future…he settled in Camden Town and took a day job working in the porn industry. However, with nothing but his guitar and the ethos of writing decent pop tunes in the same ilk as The Beatles, Small Faces, Smokey Robinson and Oasis, Mark managed to play literally hundreds of gigs and festivals across the U.K, played on the same bill as BABYSHAMBLES, LUKE TOMS and FRANK TURNER, was nominated for an Indy Music Award, played at THE CAMDEN CRAWL and gained exposure on TV/Radio and Print as well.
His debut E.P "Buy The Ticket, Take The Ride" has received rave reviews and opening track "London Lives" has become somewhat of an anthem for Hedonists across the globe.
