Biography

Meet multi-instrumentalist, songwriter/musician Mark Hewer from Windsor, Ontario. Mark's songs have received national airplay on CBC Television in Canada and both FM & AM radio airplay. Mark Hewer is a pioneer of online collaborations who has taken the Internet by storm. Mark just completed a history making journey to Frankfurt, Germany, where he met fellow Internet collaborators Mike Burn and Daniel Iorio in person, for the first time, after 4 years of writing songs together over the Internet. Hewer has written volumes of material over the years, but unlike most musicians who turn to record labels for their power, Hewer turned to an obvious (although underused) location: the Internet. Hewer has quietly gained the attention of many international sources and his music now graces many a worldly sound system.

Sue Braiden of CBC Radio says "Mark Hewer is a gentle, passionate and gifted composer. His ability to collaborate is likely the product of his experience as a drummer for various bands on the circuit. Hewers got much more than just a knack for rhythm. His ability to create well-textured scores is almost poetic, not getting caught in the trap of formula songs. He adroitly crosses genres, moving as easily through instrumentals and vocal pop pieces as he does the jazzy, delicious little piano riffs. Mark Hewers scores are shapeshifters -- melodically layered journeys that are a delight to take."

Mark's song "Maya" is a '2006 SongDoor International Songwriting Competition' finalist in the Instrumental category.
Songdoor Evaluation - "Gorgeous. Please send this to movie studio production managers. It's great score material. The variations are excellent. Great dynamics, emotion, lift, swell, all that good stuff. Nice ending too. One of the better instrumentals we've received - it easily made the cut. Great job!"

Sky Glider

Written By: Ash Ferry

Sky Glider
Surrounded by your Love.
Although the weatherman says "There's a storm up ahead".
We're gonna make it thru, we're gonna fly.

There's a Million Miles before us now,
Nothings gonna hold us down tonight.
Sky Glider, Sky Glider.

So here we go, we'll take to the sky,
And it will be such a Beautiful Ride.
There's a Million Miles below us now,
Nothings gonna break us down. Beautiful Ride.

Surrounded by your Love.
There's a Million Miles behind us now.
Nothings gonna slow us down tonight.

Sky Glider, Sky Glider.

Although the weatherman says "There's a storm up ahead"
We're gonna make it thru, cause we're in God's hands.
Surrounded by your Love.

Your Love taking me higher, Your Love is taking me higher.
So here we go, and it will be such a Beautiful Ride.
Beautiful Ride, Beautiful Ride.
Surrounded by your Love.
