ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
With born-deaf grandparents, Mark Hildreth was an unlikely musical prodigy. Inspired as a child by Elton John, Billy Joel and John Lennon, he taught himself to sing and play the piano at the age of 10.

At age eighteen, Mark was accepted to one of Canada’s top arts programs, in the culture-rich city of Montreal, Quebec. They accepted 12 applicants per year – Mark was the youngest.

A few years later, after playing just two live gigs as a solo artist, he was invited to showcase at Sony/BMG in New York, and signed a demo deal with Warne Livesey, the prodigious producer of Midnight Oil, Holly McNarland, The The, 54-40, and The Mathew Good Band. Having sold over 15 million records, Mr. Livesey knew that Mark’s first full-length album, Complex State Of Attachment, an instantly hummable collection of pop/R&B songs rife with heart, honesty and groove would be a success.

But before he could make it into the studio, Mark’s life suddenly changed. One of his closest friends died suddenly of a drug overdose. With this event, Mark discovered a new passion for an ideology behind his music, and the one musician who would inspire it – Stevie Wonder. Says Mark, “What really gets me about Stevie is his perspective as a songwriter. He always writes from a standpoint of building love and compassion in the world, and that is what I committed to doing with my music on Complex State Of Attachment.”

An artist with hundreds of stage appearances under his belt, and the winner of the 2006 Singer Songwriter Awards and the Billboard World Song Contest, Mark splits his time between Los Angeles, New York and Vancouver, Canada. He has a perspective and an emotional depth that are rare in this world, and it only takes one meeting to see it. “I know that people can change, that the world can change, because I changed. And I want to share that.”

Great voice, music and lyrics!
This CD got it all right. The melodies are catchy and the lyrics make you think and dream about this whole universe out there. Every single song has un petit je ne sais quoi which makes it really enjoyable to listen to. The first time I listened it, I had shivers! No kidding! The voice is amazing, powerful and moved me. Because of this CD, I began to learn how to play the piano so I could play my favourite songs! What are you waiting for? :D

I'm tempted to buy a second copy..
This album is seriously on repeat all the time on my itunes. Love the music, love the lyrics, love the voice! Ready To Fall is still my fave (I wasn't used to the remix at first, but now I like it more than the original). Other favorites: Here I Am, Beauty of it All, Magic Spell.

Highly recommend this album. Can't wait for the next one!!

Love it! Love it! Love it!
This was an album that I had been looking forward to and Mark did not disappoint. It's purely an album full of joy and compassion, which is something that is often missing from other popular artists today. I absolutely love Siddhartha and Love Will Make It Certain. I'm definitely looking forward to hearing more music from Mark in the future.

Great debut album!
Definitely an album you want to pick up if you enjoy the piano mixed with a little bit of soulful music. Mark brings out the best in human emotion, and he'll have you clapping/singing along in no time. Truly inspirational lyrics and beautiful music. It's on repeat in my car.

Awesome effort on this album Mark! I just cant stop listening to it. I first got into Magic spell, and from there on I've learned to love all the others. Waiting anxiously for your next record :) Truly inspiring.

Absolutely amazing!
I first his songs on his myspace page and I couldn't wait to buy this album. It is absolutely amazing! His lyrics are heart felt and actually make sense, unlike alot of the music today. His voice is beautiful, and all in all it is spectacular. Everyone should own a copy. ;)

Fantastic Ablum!
Having purchased a few early songs of Mark's, I was extremely excited when I heard a new CD was in the works. And once I bought it, I was hooked beginning to finish. His writing is filled with beautiful melodies and he tops them off with lyrics that really make you think and inspire you to be the most joyful person you can be.
Buy it! You won't regret it, I promise!
