"Tabernacle Man Releases Self Titled CD"

Thursday April 8, 2004
1/2 Newspaper pages in total

"On this self-produced album, Boucot constantly reberberates this sense of divine inspiration and other-worldy transcendence. It is a record filled with airy whisps of escape, severe cloaks of reflection and an overall sense that life, in the end, will be all right..."
-Nick DiUlio - The Central Record


"Singing for Suppers"

Sunday June 6, 2004

Mark Boucot, a musician, singer and songwriter who lives in Tabernacle, led a band from 1989 to 1993 called the Conscious Zombies. Then he earned a master's degree in business administration and now works as an administator in the health care industry.
But Mr. Boucot has never given up music. He recently released an alternative folk-rock compact disk on Interzone Records called "Mark Boucot." He is donating the profits to Project Hope, a Camden organization that provides nutritional and social services to the homeless.
"I just feel that in terms of my life I have so much abundance," he said. "I have an embarrassment of riches. It may sound idealistic but this is my chance to be idealistic and use my art to help other people. It gives my art a higher purpose and feels like the right thing to do."
Mr. Boucot says that Camden has a significant homeless problem, and he likes Project Hope because it tries to help peole achieve self-sufficiency. His CD can be bought at Tower Records, on www.theorchard.com and www.cdbaby.com, or through his website, www.markboucot.com

"Camden's Homeless Benefit From CD"

It's a question many tri-county residents probably have asked themselves at one time or other: "How do I live comfortably just miles away from Camden and not do something about the city's plight?
Of course, hundreds of South Jerseyans do lotss of things to try to help Camden residents each year. Now we can add Mark Boucot to the list.
The Tabernacle singer-songwirter, former frontman of the Conscious Zombies, has released his solo debut, a self titled CD on Interzone Records, as a benefit to raise money for those who call the city streets of Camden home.
Boucot will celebrate the relase of the album at 8:30 PM Thursday at the Tin Angel, 20 S. 2nd St. Philadelphia, with special guests Kenn Kweder and Allen James. Tickets are $8. Call (215) 928-0770 or visit www.tinangel.com for ticket info.
Proceeds form the sales of Boucot's Cd (available at Tower Records, and at www.TheOrchard.com and www.CDBaby.com) will benefit Project Hope, a Camden nonprofit that provides medical, nutritional and social services to the homeless.
"I already live an abundant life, and have so much that's been given to me," Boucot says. "And the way these particular songs came through me, they feel like gifts that I wasn't meant to keep entirely for myself. This sin't about me. Being a singer-songwriter to me, isa bout giving something back."

Bio

Mark Boucot has a vision to make a difference in the world through the power of music. A gifted songwriter and musician, he follows his muse to manifest positive energy in his songs. His new CD is lyrically influenced by the beat writers and delivers free-spirited messages about the road, self actualization and future promise.

Musically the new CD features acoustic guitars, baby grand piano and swirling organs. Influences include the Wallflowers, John Wesley Harding, Ben Folds and Coldplay. With sweeping melodies, rich harmonies and subtle guitar placements, the sound on this CD is authentic and freely renders songs from the heart.

Robert Federici, who has had several songs chart on billboard top 100, produced the CD. He was assisted by Scott Herzog from Third Story Recording in Philadelphia, who co-engineered the CD.

This release is distributed through The Orchard, CD Baby and through www.markboucot.com. It will be available at Tower Records, and other independent record stores. Mark made his first West Coast appearance at the Southern California Songwriter's EXPO sponsored by Artists Helping Artists(AHA) in Orange County in August 2003. He'll complete an East Coast club tour this summer. This record is being played on WXPN 88.5 FM and WSTW 93.7 FM as well as other east coast radio stations and satellite radio. Mark played live on 6-17-04 on WXPN 88.5 with Helen Leicht to support the release.

Ultimately, as a writer, Mark seeks to use his gift of creating music to help others and make a difference in the world. The proceeds from the new CD will benefit PROJECT HOPE, which is a non-profit organization that provides medical, nutritional and social services to homeless people in the City of Camden, NJ directing them to self sufficiency. Check out his new CD available at www.theorchard.com, www.CDBaby.com and www.markboucot.com. It's a great CD with an even greater cause.
