Hailing from Northern Idaho, Mark has been a fixture playing in area bands for many years. Currently he plays with "The Senders" on upright bass and bass guitar, and with "Daniel Mark Faller and the Working Poor" on 5-string bass. In both bands his vocals help support harmonies and lead vocal work.
Other bands that he has appeared with are "Yankee Blue" (bluegrass) "The Jazz Gentz" (jazz) "Spiral Highway" (folk rock) "Citizen" (classic rock) "Pony Express" (country) and "The Swing Notes" (swing)
His two studio recordings showcase his vocals as well as bass playing. His first, "A Band Of Marks", has a country folk flavor with lush harmonies throughout. His second "From The Basshowse" is more rock flavored with unusual arrangements of popular cover songs as well as originals.
Recently retired form working at Costco for 27 years, Mark is enjoying the opportunity to make music his main focus.
