Born and raised in BC in a home filled with classical piano, western guitar, and hymns of the church, Mark's musical journey was, from the start, diverse. Upon discovering the guitar as a young teen, he continued to explore and experiment with many styles of sound. And even though he won the Royal Conservatory of Music silver medal while training in classical guitar, in the end his heart was won by the blues.
In writing and performing, Mark's structure and technique build the listener's confidence in his skill. He exposes his soul, whether composing original pieces, performing live, or teaching music at a local college. His talent is in demand and he often plays with other local artists. Mark's most recent effort included writing, producing, and playing guitar, mandolin, and lap steel on the One Acre album titled "Big Back Yard".
He has mastered many styles, but what defines Mark best is how he patiently abides in the Creator of all music to be challenged to create. The value he stores in this is best expressed by C.S. Lewis: "You don't have a soul. You are a soul. You have a body." Hear him play. You'll know it's true...
