As a multi-instrumentalist, Mark has enjoyed playing a variety of musical styles in his career of over 30 years. His slow, soulful harmonica dances in the blue fabric of his articulated-fingerpicking style on the acoustic guitar. As a bassist, Mark was afforded the opportunity to play and learn from some of Kansas City’s finest elder statesmen and women of jazz, and blues music. He recorded two releases on the Enneagram Label – Town Topic in 2009, and Easyville ~American Stories in 2011.
Shortly after the release of Town Topic, Mark teamed up with guitarist Max Berry to represent the Kansas City Blues Society in the International Blues Competition in Memphis in 2009, and 2010 as duo/solo finalists.
In 2016 with a Kansas City all-star studio lineup, his recording ~Difficult Man~ was released the following year on Love Honey Records.
This work is available to listen free, and then purchase H E R E.
In January 2019 Mark, once again returned to Memphis to compete as
Solo Blues finalist in the International Blues Competition.
In 2020, Mark continues playing in Kansas City, touring the Midwest, and continues his life-long career as a beekeeper.
Recently, he has produced several singles with accompanying videos on youtube.
