The best kept secret in music



"Mark Wiechman is a do-it-yourself kinda guy--he composed, arranged, and produced all the songs on his latest release, "There is no Tomorrow Without You." Mainly adult soft rock and acoustic folk, Wiechman's tunes border on gospel love songs (if there is such a creature). It's an unusual concept, but one Wiechman stands by. His CD insert states unequivocally, "Each of us must build our own mountain and then climb it. I did everything on this CD just to see if I could." The record was recorded and pressed at Wiechman's home studio, The Menagerie---named for his collection of animals. Wiechman is a learned composer who names Monk, chick Corea, Jaco Pastorious and Stanley Clarke as influences." - Folio Weekly, Jacksonville Florida


Mark's first solo CD was THERE IS NO TOMORROW WITHOUT YOU (2000) on which he played all instruments and wrote all tunes. He recorded two CD's with Mike Jacobson as The Serious Moonlighters: ARE YOU SERIOUS? (2002) and SEE YOU ON THE OTHER SIDE (2003) in a blues-rock style plus good romantic ballads. In 2004 he recorded TIME OF THE SEASON with Briar Rose. ONCE MORE, WITH FEELING, Briar Rose's second CD, is nearing completion.


Feeling a bit camera shy


Mark has been playing professionally since his teens in rock and jazz bands, orchestras, and church ensembles. He is an honors graduate of Jacksonville (FL) University with a degree in Music Theory and Composition. With a strong 70's funk and pop vibe but modern energy and Erin's sass, Briar Rose is a blooming band for the new century.
