Freds Review

"......His debut album 'MELT'is without a doubt one of my favourite albums by an unsigned artist - and i ve heard plenty. Now Eden has released the long awaited( fofr me anyway)follow up, 'NO MIND'

A sadder , more subdued affair than 'Melt' , 'No Mind' showcases Edens humanity, delving deep inside his soul in search of the universe within him.This is the theme throughout No Mind giving the album much more focus than his debut............

Mo Mind isnt so much a collection of songs as it is a mosaic of feelings and vulnerability. As a result,it represents an important new dimension to this highly talented artist, already impressive capabilities.

This music needs to be heard.

" The initial response t hearing Mark Edens second album No Mind, is more than likely to be "How has a singer / Songwriter possessing such talent remained unsigned? "

This is sertainly a valid question. Dare I say" He is one of the most popular and most sucessful unsigned artist's I know of. Boasting a loyal live performance following and being voted for best unsigned artist in 2001, surley justifies my claim.......

The melodies born from this musician, are nothing short of harmonious and aurally pleasing.No Mind is however one of those albums that needs to be listened to a few times before you can reach that distinct appreciation.

The exceptional beauty of No Mind is definitely worth the wait though.If Edens music were personified his vocals and instruments would be holding hands together.......

Providing a sense of purity as he captures an emotion and then allows 'the music to write itself

Adding to the sense of integrity is the tribal element existing in most of his music.Their is a sheer honesty in this music that cannot be ignored..........

A magnificent awareness of music is evident and the unpretentious nature of Edens composition is truly inspiring .

He is taking music back to its original element-propelling sincerity ,charm and most importantly ,integrity."

Bio

Mark has been exploring sound for over 20 years. He has written over 600 songs, for many bands and styles of music. These have received radio and television exposure inter/nationally. Mark has played his music everywhere from Australia to New York,Germany,Cuba,Costa Rica,Scotland etc.
Mark Eden has written, recorded, arranged and produced his four Albums.
Mark's debut album "Melt" (1999) embodies twelve richly textured, well-crafted and dynamic songs exploring honest, and emotional lyrics. The songs interweave a hybrid mix of tribal, folk, rock and pop.
Mark’s second album, "No Mind" (2001) developed solidly upon the themes & moods of Melt, but skillfully captured the strength, dynamics and raw emotion of his live performance. "No Mind" found Mark continuing his musical journey with nine richly beautiful but stark songs of remarkable sonic quality, moving into a unique tribal-folk/pop realm. "No Mind" invites the listener on an evocative expedition through emotions, atmospheres & sounds, deftly embodied in song. These powerful songs are delivered through Mark’s passionate, bare, cathartic voice. Mark’s own intricate tribal percussion, vocal chants, strident guitar chords and lush melodies, along with bass and & kit drums are presented to the listener with unerring clarity & depth on this CD.
"Meaning I give" is Mark´s fourth Album which just release a week ago in May 2007.

Next to playing gig around the world solo and with his band, Mark produced experimental soundtracks for numerous animations and won a few prizes for his music on those tracks.
