Feeling a bit camera shy


In spite of obviously sharp vision, Dr. Mark Abrahams wears his wire-rim-glassed view of the world squarely on his sleeve. Perhaps it was this trait that moved him to discard his career as physician—in order to become a musician.

A move that undoubtedly made his parents very proud.

A mature thinker—
Judging from his bio, Dr. Abrahams has been around the block. He’s gone straight… as well as taken numerous left turns and circuitous detours (perhaps some scenic, some not). Consequently, if you ask the quintessential rock & roll query, "Are You Experienced?" — his answer would decidedly be, "affirmative."

Songs that are intelligently concepted and articulated—
The content of Dr. Abrahams’ work is frequently based on archetypes: concepts, images and ideas that appeal to us all on the most basic psychic levels. In particular, the universal themes of sin & imprisonment and freedom & redemption form bedrock for much of his lyrical body of work. Taking it even one step further, the clever doctor has adapted some of his favorite motion picture stories into song. For example, One flew over the Cuckoo’s Nest is re-imagined in "St. John Sings," and The Shawshank Redemption is thinly veiled in "3/4 moon." For anyone who knows those movies, he faithfully stays true to the overall gestalt, while simultaneously adding more (as demonstrates the magic of music).

Delivered with soul and commitment—
You hear this haunting, rough-hewn voice… and its one of those voices—maybe like Tom Waits or Levon Helm—that’s clearly born of experience.

Furthermore, as a performer—Dr. Abrahams pays great attention to ensuring that the live music gathering is an interactive experience. For those of us who cut our musical teeth on the era defining music of the 60’s, the resulting sense of having had a shared musical experience is a precious added bonus.

One thing is for sure: as patients, we may have lost a healer… but as listeners and concert-goers, we have gained healing gifts of a different sort. I urge you to seek out and experience the music of Mark Abrahams.

Dr. Abrahams is currently a medical director and writer in the pharmaceutical advertising industry, Dr. Abrahams
