Bio

John Mark Thomas received his first guitar for his 13th birthday... and so the addiction began. One year later, John started writing his own music, and at the age of 15, recorded his first home-made CD along with his sisters Beth and Faith (to get a copy of this you must deposit $10,000 to his Swiss bank account). Since then, he has recorded four projects of his own.

John comes from a long line of talented amateur bluegrass musicians and builds on this tradition, adding his own distinctive spin. Having grown up as a missionary kid in Southeast Asia, John has a unique perspective which shows in his thoughtful lyrics.

In addition to releasing his newest album, Here Goes Nothing, John recently graduated from LeTourneau University with a degree in Computer Science and Engineering. He hopes to move to Nashville, TN, as soon as he can find a real job there.
