The inheritance of voice and place makes for a powerful union. Though acoustic in nature, Mark’s music is strangely expansive – it’s original in sound, soulful and groove oriented. His presence is warm and unpretentious. Poetic, yet simply profound, here’s someone faithfully doing what he’s supposed to do. He performs with that conviction night-in and night-out. When you see him, when you hear him at work, you’ll understand why friends are talking – about ‘the real’ Mark Alan.
