Story
Introduction

Mark is a highly respected singer-songwriter with twenty-five years of performing,

writing and recording experience.  After several years under the wing of the legendary

Tom Paxton, Mark moved to Nashville and signed as a staff writer to the Paxton

co-venture with Cherry Lane Music Publishing.

 

Mark has held staff writing positions with other major publishing companies

including, Bluewater Music Group, Maypop Music Group (owned by the super-group

Alabama) as well as Sony Music Publishing. Mark's songs have been recorded by

independent and major artists, receiving airplay on radio and TV in the United States

and abroad. His songs have hit the Billboard Top Forty charts, highlighted by the hit

single by Neal McCoy, "Every Man for Himself." Billboard Magazine called it

"a song with rare lyrical and musical edge and the best cut on the album".

Buoyed by wins in singer-songwriter contests at major festivals across the country,

Mark began to build a reputation for standout live performances. However, it was

winning the Kerrville New Folk Award in 1993 that really put Mark on the map and on the road.  Mark has just

released his 7th. CD entitled “Good Life”.  It includes a song by the late Chicago, troubadour Tom Dundee as well as the

song “Wake-Up,” written for the Obama campaign and used in rallies and fundraisers in the last months of the campaign.
