As the inventor of the Clackamore and developer of the Reeded mouth bow, Wayland's creations come alive in the music of The ODDTONES. Modern microphone techniques and Wayland's unique performances bring ancient and subtle instruments to the forefront. The amazing sounds of mouth resonated harmonics highlight music that ranges from blues to folk and world beat to classical.

Mark has been involved in music since his first stage performance at the tender age of five. His background is that of a percussionist with Jazz, Rock, and Blues influences, as well as being a poet, singer and songwriter. His harmonies, percussion and energy add depth to the unique ODDTONE sound.
Currently Mark is webmaster and newsletter editor for the Jew's Harp Guild. With Wayland Harman and Dan Gossi as partners, he helped form Mouth Music Press in May 1998 to promote and sell mouth-resonated instruments and related items. Mark serves mainly as the tech-head on the team.
Mark loves spontaneous jamming and intricate rhythms, but also enjoys meditative and trance inducing sounds. He is presently learning the art of throat-singing and exploring the music, and musical history, of different cultures.
