MY NAME IS MARK
My name is Mark. I live in Atlanta. I started writing music again in September of 2011 after a 9 year hiatus. During the spring of 2011, I had my Larrivee acoustic repaired as the bridge was starting to come off the body. Once repaired, I started leaving it out on a stand and gradually started to pick it up some, usually when I had a buzz (lol). In early September of 2011, at my sister's cabin in the north Georgia mountains, my awesome girlfriend (now wife) challenged me; she said that every time I picked it up I played the same 4 or 5 little chunks of music and I should turn one into a song. So, I wrote a song called 'light rain'. As of today, I've written 30 songs. My plan is to keep writing, performing, recording and presenting my songs to anyone who will listen. Thanks for listening. my name is mark
