The best kept secret in music


"Mark Hammond puts the meaning of muse back into music"

''Mark Hammond puts the meaning of muse back into music. His songs think, as well as feel, as well as sing along the marrow of the bone. They are head-strong, heart-felt, and are a brimful of ideas and imagery. Uncomfortably honest or tenderly expressive, lively or lyrical, Mark means what he says and says what he means… and loss, travelling and stillness, about self, soul and the savages down the road….or maybe just about the sunlight on a rain washed roof….. In any case, it’s best to listen, or better still, to listen again.''

Feeling a bit camera shy


I'm not usually into bio's as most bands have the same old crap up there and I fear I'd stray into making a complete wanker out of myself. But I realise it has some true relevance in a press kit so here it goes;

I am 25 years old, I grew up in Essex, England. I taught myself to sing and play guitar. I bought my first guitar through working my fingers to the bone and I bought my last guitar through working my fingers to the bone...

I am currently working on my debut album; The Lost Aquarian Gospel, which is an independent project.

A lot of the inspiration of my music has been born through traveling. I have a lot of respect for the culture of a place and its people. Some of the songs that will end up on the final master of my album were written in the Indian Himalaya, on treks in New Zealand and on top of the sacred Glastonbury Tor.

I currently split my time between jolly ol' England and the San Francisco Bay Area in the states. I'm open for opportunities globally, although especially California and London.

I strive to be authentic in what I play and I hope that the audience gains as much inspiration, passion and zest for life listening to my music as I have birthing it all.

If you have any questions or enquiries feel free to drop me an email, cheers.
