I will say this - comparisons are a double edged sword. We instinctually make them. But they are limiting. Anyone who plays this style of blues/folk influenced music and has a gravely male voice is going to evoke an immediate comparison. And if you haven't heard Mark before, you'll make that comparison the first time you hear him, too. But please don't let that stop you from appreciating what Mark's songs can bring. The sound might have deep roots and a familiar sonic signature, but the songs and stories are all Mark's.
Mark was joined by Myke Mazzei on guitar and Darrin Baldwin on piano. Mark himself played some songs solo on guitar, some songs solo on piano and some with the additional guitar and piano accompaniment.
Take a listen to some of Mark's music and try to catch him on stage:
"The Next Song"
"Window of a Train"
"I Know What It's Like"
"That Red Dress"
"Cold Was the Day"
"Write You a Letter"
