LEARN ALL ABOUT MARK
Mark’s earliest musical memory is lying bed as a toddler and listening to the music of Dionne Warwick and Nat King Cole coming up through the floorboards; and there began a life-long love of music, later along the way influenced by the likes of David Gilmour and Ritchie Blackmore.
Mark has been playing guitar since the mid 1970’s with a variety of bands, ranging from the two-guitars-bass-and-vocals-into-a-small-practice-amp variety to the rattling-around-in-transits up and down the UK and playing festivals in front of enthusiastic European crowds. A particularly memorable gig was depping for the late, great Big Jim Sullivan.
Mark currently plays with Off The Record (which once featured the incomparable talents of one Mr Garreth Hicklin, one half of the brains behind The Sound of Springsteen) and has passed through numerous bands, most of which failed to have quite the seismic impact on the music world that was hoped for at their inception. It was with a great deal of excitement that Mark joined The Sound of Springsteen and is pleased to be collaborating with Garreth, once again.
