Biography

Mark was born and raised in the town of Amesbury, Massachusetts.  He
began playing the drums at age of 7 and by age 12 was well on his
way.  He recalls, “I had my first paying gig at the age of 12.  I was a
last-minute fill-in for a drummer in a local wedding band.  We were in
this smoky old VFW Hall on a sunday afternoon.  I held my own with the
“old pros” and walked out of there with $50 in my pocket.  Needless to
say, I was hooked!”

Mark turned his attention to the guitar during the early 1990′s
primarily as a song-writing tool.  As a singer/songwriter, he has
performed in venues throughout New England, Tennessee, and is most
recently enjoying a rapidly increasing performance schedule within the
Indianapolis, IN area, which he now calls home.  He has shared the
stage with Livingston Taylor,  Don Schlitz, Mark Stewart, and Steve
Seskin, Tim Grimm and Leon Russell.  He continues to be an invited
performer at the world renowned Bluebird Cafe in Nashville, TN, and his
style has been compared to James Taylor, David Wilcox and Skip Ewing.
