Mark started playing guitar in 1975,by 1978 he was writing his own songs as well as playing many covers in bars and coffee houses in central NY.In 1980 Mark formed an acoustic duo with Jim Prichard,they were called Dark Horse ,they performed together until 1982 when Jim left to form a band.Mark was asked to join the band but declined,so he could keep playing as an acoustic act.Mark gave up live performing from 1985 until around 2003 when he started performing here and there.Now he is getting back into it as a full time thing.
Spring of 2008 Mark decided to record 10 of his original songs,he was looking for a place to record ,mentioned it to a guy he had met several times that is a very popular musician in the central NY area by the name of jon Liebing. Jon offered to produce and record the songs at his home studio Mark played acoustic guitar and sang lead.Jon also played acoustic and electric guitars,piano,bass,drums,harmonica,tambourine and sang harmony.The recordings were finished in June the cd should be out in September or October of 2008 .
The original music Mark writes,has been described as a mixture of folk/rock/country music not too country (think Neil Young,Tom Petty) I have heard people say his music reminds them of a mix of Beatles/Dylan/Lou Reed/Tom Petty and Neil Young which isn`t too far off the Mark.
