THE LATEST THEORIES
THE NEW ALBUM
It's released! Now available on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify and all the other major outlets.
Written and recorded during the Covid lockdown, these new songs point to new musical directions in Mark’s writing, and are underscored by the anxieties of a country that feels at times like it’s about to come apart. Like “Racing to the Bottom”, a haunting ballad that looks at the profound sadness of the George Floyd murder, those that came before, and the sadly predictable fallout since. In the play we will see that these kind of events are not unique to the United States, but they play out endlessly, on and on around the world.
Mark continues to grow musically as his guitar work becomes increasingly nuanced and even blues songs take twists and turns.
THE NEW BAND
It's not like we've been hibernating through this lockdown. Think of us as the guy who goes out to catch a whale in a rowboat with a bucket of tartar sauce. We're learning all of the hardest of Mark's songs.
Bassist Gil Glass joined the band last year, rocking bottom end.
Keyboardist and Guitarist John Coventry has joined the band to beef up our musicianship on stage.
And Joseph Abramson is bringing his alto sax to the party. Now we can do songs live we couldn't touch before.
THE NEW OLD
Mark's so prolific that you can miss a lot if you have a life and are not getting instantaneous notices from his SoundCloud page. Here's a few faves that you may have overlooked or forgotten:
