Album Notes
The beat goes on...BLOOD & TREASURE is the highly-anticipated follow-up to Mark’s celebrated 2006 release Trick Fiction. Barroom tested and road-weary tuff, the band weaves stellar songwriting and a smashing live band sound with blithe disregard for the tepid conformity of today’s corporate music playlists. This is emotional, thinking-person’s music that overlays a contemporary singer/songwriter sensibility on to the Americana legacy of blues, soul and raucous rock’n roll.

BLOOD & TREASURE builds on Paul Mark’s word-of-mouth legacy with that trademark live, no-holds-barred roots rock sound. Cut in Memphis, Tennessee at legendary Ardent Studios, the tracks were co-produced by Paul Mark and Jeff Powell (Big Star, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Afghan Whigs, B.B. King, The Bottle Rockets). This is Mark’s seventh CD on the NYC-based indie label Radiation Records.


Barroom tested and road-weary tough, PAUL MARK & the VAN DORENS carry on the tradition of live, no-holds-barred blues rock with a difference: original songwriting that goes beyond my-baby-left-me-clichés to cover contemporary turf. Biting, witty and ironic, Mark\'s original lyrics are head and shoulders above the hackneyed toss-offs of most contemporary acts.

Hailing from New York City and touring up and down the East Coast for years in a beat-up van, PAUL MARK & the VAN DORENS are unforgettable to the thousands of fans who\'ve seen them perform. The band delivers an unsurpassed roar, a sloppy southern blues approach that slams into gear and violates every rule required for MTV rotation.

Mark\'s top-drawer, finely-crafted songwriting is unsurpassed in the blues/rock idiom. Fierce guitar tones, reckless rhythms that relentlessly churn, caveman vocals that stop you in your tracks, these guys are rough, live and real.
