Bio

Mark Feil is a singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist originally from the New York area currently residing in sunny South Florida. Having spent his formative years on a steady diet of the music of the sixties and seventies Mark soon began creating music of his own while allowing the influence of such greats as The Beatles, Pink Floyd and The Doors to shine through in a subtle way. While these influences are evident at times, they never overpower Mark’s own musical vision. His warm, baritone voice is reminiscent at times of Jim Morrison, and is equally at home on declarations of love and longing, sketches of lives on the edge, or the search for transcendence.

For his debut release entitled “A Thousand Suns,” Mark enlisted the talent and creativity of Phil Varone (Saigon Kick, Skid Row) on Drums, and Scott Migone (Gypsy Queen, Jesse Strange, Millie Jackson) on Guitar. Mark sang all the vocals and played all the bass tracks, keyboards, a bit of guitar, percussion and strings. The entire album was mixed by Steve Gordon, who has worked with artists ranging from Betty Wright to Bon Jovi to Joss Stone.

Mark is currently seeking permanent bandmembers to perform songs from the CD live, as well as to perform and record new material. In the meantime he is performing as a solo acoustic artist. In these performances he recreates songs from the CD as well as other originals and covers.

All too often in live shows it seems artists have their own agenda with little regard for the audience. Mark is no such performer. As he puts it: “In my solo performances I like to play to the audience and feed off of their energy. The mood in a venue is an important factor in reaching an audience. If a crowd is toe-tapping and having a grand old time I’m not gonna pull out a tear-jerker. And I’m not gonna play drinking songs in a coffee house... unless of course they ask for it.”
