Hello Mark! Thanks for taking the time to chat with us!
Hi! It’s my pleasure. Thanks for having me.
When writing new music do you need music before you can create lyrics?
Not at all! In fact, the majority of songs I’ve written have been lyrics and melody first and then music afterward. I’m actually writing a lot right now and trying to get some music down first and then come up with the melody and lyrics. I’m trying to broaden my songwriting perspectives a bit.
Where do you usually write?
So many of my ideas happen in the car when I’m driving. I have so many voice memos I’ve made on my way to work.
What is the most exciting thing about releasing new music?
There's always a rush of hearing what people think of your songs. You spend months and months creating and tweaking and polishing them, and then you finally get to share them with other people. It’s terrifying and exhilarating.
Vinyl, CD, Download, or Stream music?
I love Vinyl always. For one, I think it sounds the best. But I also just love the ritual of taking it out of the sleeve, carefully placing it on the spinner, and putting down the needle. Anything that you have to do consciously is usually best in my opinion.
What decade has the best music, in your opinion?
The late ’60s to mid-’70s is the golden age of music I think. But I honestly decade hop all the time. I love all of it for different moods!
What is the big dream for you, Mark?
My two biggest dreams are to headline the Hollywood Bowl and to sing “BellaDonna” for Stevie Nicks at the Kennedy Center Honors. A world tour would be amazing too!
If you were to make a playlist of your top 10 favorite songs, what would be on it?
"Shake it Out" - Florence and the Machine
"Feeling Good" - Nina Simone
"BellaDonna" - Stevie Nicks
"All I Really Want" - Alanis Morrisette
"Rhiannon" - Fleetwood Mac
