One of if not the best contemporary blues artist in Britain and firm favourite of The Honey Bee Blues Club.Let Mark explain how his songs are.
The music is rooted in the blues, but it’s not stuck in the past. I’m tapping into the timeless quality of the early blues to produce music totally relevant to the present day. I’m trying to do something fresh and different. I’m picking the guitar, using the strong rhythms and feel of the originators, and putting hopefully memorable tunes on top. People say they’re catchy.
The songs are about a variety of things – I figure the area of male/female shenanigans has been pretty well-covered already, and I’m interested in all sorts of other things. I’ve got songs on subjects that people don’t generally write songs about.
