""With Clouds on the Horizon, TAKNbySTORM has the Forecast""

singer/songwriter Mark, aka- TAKNbySTORM, mixes his music and lyrics with Christian, Gospel, Jazz and R & B, turning the lyrics into a ballad with a positive flare without skimping on the hip hop beat.

Although his music mainly falls under the category of Christian, these songs send out generally positive messages about issues in society today and everyone's need to get along, help one another no matter what their race, creed or religion is.

The artist TAKNbySTORM grew up in a military family and spent most of his younger years living in Germany. Although he had the opportunity to listen to all types of music, Gospel seemed to be at the top of his list.

Quickly growing up, he worked on his musical talents, performed in his school's version of the show "Godspell", leading him to other auditions. He also spent time in the U.S. Army, where he wrote and kept a journal of his songs and poetry.

After he left the Army, TAKNbySTORM continued to work diligently with his music and became involved with social services, helping troubled youth.

When I asked how STORM got his name he replied, "The name "TAKNbySTORM" comes from my personality. All my life I have been able to make friends easily.... and all of my friends always tell me that my loyalty and passion about life is addictive to them.... kind of like a storm.... how a storm picks up and gathers along....my music does the same....the more one listens....the more that they like it....and the message is always positive."

He also added that his music attracts all ages, but mostly appeals to the age 24 and up crowd.

I recently listened to two of his songs on the album "The Beginning" which I found to be inspirational and sung from the heart, along with good sound quality.

So, be sure to have a listen on iTunes, Rhapsody or Amazon and look for more of TAKNbySTORM's music!! - Denise Kaminsky

The music began in 2005, but, was always INSIDE of this man. This BIO is not designed to "lure" in Record Executives.....i will not boast about itunes sales....or even post pics with "Famous" people that i have met. The ONLY reason for this site is to make people aware that there is an ALTERNATIVE to the music that is being force fed to the public by way of radio, television and media. This is a place to find music that uplifts and entertains.....yet, talks about LIFE. Not many of us can Afford to "ball out of control" or "make it rain" in a club.......and frankly, what purpose does such an OUTWARD display of wealth and waste achieve? I am a father........a brother.....an uncle........a cousin.....a son....a grandfather and grandson. No matter where music should take me.......my greatest accomplishment will be.....The FATHER that i have become to my children.The example that i set for them. My music will always reflect that example and my BELIEFS. Thank u for stopping by........If u have business u would like to discuss, or u just want to send an email of encouragement my way........
