Yowsa! Just fantastic.
Your approach to the bottom end is something I don't think I've heard before. It's like the upper register of a fretless bass.
More please. :)

Very impresive Mark! 8) You have a great style, and I really like the dynamics. :D

Hey that is wonderful. I like your style and compositions, very fresh and inventive. You remind me of Erik Mongrain (check him out http://www.myspace.com/erikrain ) Also you said on your site your getting into bluegrass, check out Chris Thile he is a genious and more like Mozart then Bill Monroe.

I really enjoyed your stuff, you are very talented, are you Jazz or classically trained?

Gentlemen, thanks so much for your kind words, I do appreciate it. There are a few more cuts that still have to be formatted and will hopefully go up soon. I'll be sure to let you know. I'm planning on putting together a little monthly newsletter with cd and video news, some lessons and all, if you're interested in knowing when we get the others up I suppose you can can contact me privately through this website ( Is that right? )...

And D, Chris Thile is fantastic, thanks for the recommendation. I've been meaning to pick up his solo disc; I heard him on a Dixie Chicks record, he played an insane solo on one of the tracks. I'd love to hear some music he's actually written.

I haven't had any formal training but I tend to study, analyze and dissect all sorts of music that has interested me on my own, plunked down on the floor of my living room. :) I've been a big fan of jazz guys like Bill Evans and the Miles projects, a lot of Brazilian music, Ligeti orchestras and I did go through a long stretch of classical guitar interest - some modern composers like Bogdanovich, Dyens, and Assad. I still read through a Bartok string quartet every day, usually when I first wake up, like a total music nerd... Mostly I just listen to Bjork and Juana Molina though!

Best, Mark

Ya his solo stuff is where its at "Not All Who Wander Are Lost" will give you an idea of his compositional ability, and his backup band is bela fleck, edgar meyer, bryan sutton, jerry douglass, and stuart duncan on that one.

But his new band is really groundbreaking. Their first CD "How to Grow a Woman from the Ground" is actually a bluegrass record at heart. But the band was formed to play "The Blind Leaving the Blind" a 4 movement 45 minute symphony written for a standard bluegrass band quintet and voice. I saw the premier at Carnegie Hall and it was unbelievable, its coming out as part of a new CD later this year.

I'm gonna check out some more of your stuff later, but your influences definetly show through in a good way. I just saw a Bjork concert the other day it was great, shes definetly got style.

Hi,

Wow, I'm embarrassingly late in my reply here... Thank you. We actually begin recording the next disc in a couple of weeks, I expect it to be finished by the end of August, but you never know. Or I never know, that is; these things always seem to take a little longer than planned. I think the powers that be tack on an extra week or two every time I state a proposed date of completion. :?

It'll be a different musical atmosphere on this one, much more than just solo guitar. I'll be sure to post once it's available.

And thanks again! Best, Mark
