Album Notes
Mark picked up the guitar at the age of twelve and before long, he was receiving recognition for his musical abilities. Where as many kids at twelve years of age may be content to watch television or to hang out with others of their own age, Mark had one singularly focused ambition, he wanted to become a musician. And so devoted was he to this pursuit, he would often fall to sleep at night with his guitar "strapped on."

Mark would eventually play with "Percy Sledge" and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees "Curtis Mayfield's Impressions." After thirteen years of touring, Mark attended Northwestern State University where he studied music theory, while working very diligently on his jazz, blues and rock skills. Mark was nominated for Musician of the Year by The Academy of Texas Music, for his guitar work on "One Drink Away From The Blues".

Mark finished in the top 1500 of the Billboard Songwriting Competition and finished as the second place winner in the Unisong International Songwriting Competition with his title cut, "One Drink Away From The Blues."

Woman Tone
Man this album hits like a ton of bricks! Mark has shades of the Woman Tone from the 60s but in his hands the woman must be going through menapause, WAY more attitude, bite, and emotional highs and lows. It's clear that Mark has done his woodshedding with the albums of the greats from Blues, Jazz, and Rock but when the licks are squeezed through the "Kerr Filter" it's totally his own style.

The only thing that keeps my speakers from catching on fire from the first three is the cool breeze flowing from the 4th cut, Dreamers Paradise. Mark is definitely in my top 10 guitarists of all time! If you don't believe me, just take a listen.
