Pianist, composer and singer/songwriter from Berkshire, England. Also founder member of piano trio Cherry Mint Koala (alongside violinist Charlie Brown and cellist Tony Woollard).
Mark makes eclectic, thoughtful and slightly melancholic pop/rock with a prominent classical and theatrical influence. He has often collaborated with other vocalists drawn from a wide variety of genres.
Sounds like? Neil Tennant, Rufus Wainwright and Morrissey co-writing a musical.
He has released three albums and two EPs to date through his own label Substantive Recordings (Alterations, Ascendant and Anachronisms; Nothing Impossible and The Death Of Copyright). His latest EP (Let The Body Go) will be released in May 2014.
The debut Cherry Mint Koala album Beguiling Transmissions will be released in June 2014, featuring reworked material from Mark's back catalogue and some unusual cover arrangements.
An album of dark and mournful Europop covers is being worked on for release toward the end of the year. The track Dancing On My Own (originally by Robyn) will be featured and is also included on the Let The Body Go EP. This track was used for a set of trails recently by BBC Radio 2.
