MARK WINTERS 'HEARTBEAT'


Introducing Mark Winters latest Single, Heartbeat...

Lyrics to Heartbeat:


Verse:

Im walking in the fire stripping and dripping down Feel the heat wash through me to the groundSee the faces in the fire laughing and dancing around smell the flames burning out in the sound Im running in my mind – ripping and tearing the sound – screaming until im upside down Hear the beat in my mind gripping and driving the pedal - man - I’m going blind Chorus: Heartbeat, HeartBeat      its rushing thru my veins Heartbeat, oh HeartBeat      its pumping through my Brain Verse: Im Jumping to the sound, flipping and tripping around, straining to leave the ground Feel the rhythm on my skin, rushing and rushin in, its consuming me alive Im Flying through the trees, Zigging and zagging around, so high I’ll never be found. See the lights in the sky, dimming and flashing high, Showing me the way-to-get-out Chorus: Heartbeat, HeartBeat      its rushing thru my veins Heartbeat, oh HeartBeat      its pumping through my Brain Bridge: Now is time to catch my breath Slowing down avoids my death Recovering my mind before I hop back into the grind Chorus: Heartbeat, HeartBeat      its rushing thru my veins Heartbeat, oh HeartBeat      its pumping -    through     my    Brain oh Heartbeat, HeartBeat      its rushing thru my veins Heartbeat, oh HeartBeat      its pumping -    through     my    Brain What are your favorite lyrics from your latest single? My latest single Heartbeat - I really love the opening lyrics: "I'm walking in the fire stripping and dripping down Feel the heat wash through me to the ground" It puts me in the frame of mind to get my heartbeat pumping. (the instrumentals in the opening do as well. What kind of pull did you feel about making the single?


I love the feeling of adrenaline and extreme exercise or sports. It's when I feel the most in touch with my mind and body, and really free. I wanted to capture this feeling in a "surrealistic" way, the haze your brain enters when you are in the zone, and capture some of the imagery from my experiences in the verse lyrics. I have been told its a blend of Lenny Kravitz's American Woman and Johnny Cash's I walk the line. Are all your writing sessions collaborative or do you go off on your own? Do you have a preference? I have written most of my music by myself, thinking through my perspectives and finding my voice. I think many of the songwriters who influence you are really with you in this process. For me that's Tom Petty, John Mayer, Jason Mraz, maybe Ed Sheeran. I have been experimenting with collaborations this year and hope to find some artists that I vibe with and can more regularly co-write with.

Do you ever compare the work you bring to the table?


I don't really have anything to compare my work with at the moment other than what I hear my favorite playlists (Folk Rock Favorites, Pop Rock, Happy Mix) What is standard practice when it comes to if the song is really finished?


I have a group of family and friends who I send my tracks out to before I finalize the mix/master to see how it lands with them. I also am a member of the Houston Songwriters Association, and regularly share songs that I am writing with my fellow writers. I plan to use some other services next year to incorporate demo feedback before I go into the studio for full production. It's ready when I feel like the meaning is embedded in the produced version and acoustic version. What was the goal for making the latest track?


I wanted to share the feeling I get when I am in the zone and my heartbeat is pumping. Maybe prompt people to push themselves and find it in their own life. Challenges to the new music that no one would know about?


I think you can find challenges in any profession, especially the arts. This year I have had to learn many of the aspects of touring and booking that were new, and not very easy to decipher. It would be great if you could speak with others who are ahead of you on the journey and could help you understand and navigate the process. I still feel a live show is a great way to share your music and connect with fans who are vibing with you. Favorite memory in the making of this music?


Most recently I had my first opportunity to play live on the radio (95.5 Spinnaker radio in Jacksonville Florida (thanks Beija Skylar Lisa and Kim for an amazing time). The team was awesome, the day was beautiful, and it was over the top to play a song live on the radio (I played my song Underground).

Is there anything off the table when it comes to bringing yourselves into your music?


I am exploring being more vulnerable in my song writing. I am normally a very positive and happy person, and love to write about the beauty I find in the world and the wonderful people. I have had some sad experiences in my life and have not touched that part of my writing, maybe next year. Leave us on a high note! And share some good news!


I have a great set of shows to finish out the year, Oct 5 with Lua Flora in Houston, and Dec 5 with Makes My Blood Dance in Houston. In addition, I just finished a new Christmas song "My Christmas" that will be releasing Nov 10 along with a cool video my friends and family are starring in!
