Mark is busy writing and recording songs for the new album “No Prophet Here,” after which he'll be on to writing the stageplay for "Victoria Falls" which will include both the NPH and VF albums. Have a listen.
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. “Racing to the Bottom” is 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.
