ABOUT THIS ALBUM


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 hisguitar "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's CD has been aired on 250 plus radio stations worldwide and has charted in the top 25 on many of these stations. 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."

Smoking !
Mark is well versed in the blues, country, jazz and rock having played in a number of cover bands. One Drink Away From The Blues is Mark's flawless debut, featuring eight smoking tracks and an impressive modern interpretation of B.B. Kings' 'The Thrill is Gone'. Mark has just the right, slightly gravely-toned voice ideal for singing the blues. His guitar playing is sizzling and Kerr's band is also hot adding interesting rhythms, textures and tones to Mark's music. I particular liked the animated blues based opener and the feisty finisher featuring furious guitars but everything in between is good too. Mark Kerr is a modern day blues man bringing diversity and passion to his craft!

Beautifully framed and captured, this cd belongs in the tool kit of all Mark Ker
Texas blues with influences that run from Chicago to New Orleans, from the opening note, you'll be engulfed in the conflagration of Kerr's scorching licks, arranged in an innovative way, using bass, percussion, keys and horns to deliver his lineup of well-written blues-rock tunes. The title cut is the most sultry, rivaling "Thick Side" for the cd's best cut. This cd is all about the guitar work of Mark Kerr.

Smokin Blues with a dash of spice. Perfect recipie great CD.
Mark has managed to create a killer CD. Quickly becoming one of my favorites. Kickin blues with the perfect blend of funk, jazz and some killer arpeggios. This guy is one great guitar player!

Mark Kerr's music is awesome!
Where do I start? The CD "One Drink Away From the Blues" is great!!! Being 16 years of age, I wasn't sure if I would like it, but my brother who is much older than me was listening to the Cd on the computer when I walked into the room, and I said, "Whoa who is that playing?" He finally told me who it was and the title of the Cd, and I just had have it. I absolutly love the killer guitar playing and the awesome licks and lead playing on the CD! I have ordered the Cd and I am counting the days until it comes in! My favorite song is "Low Down Dirty Shame."

Mike Moody

A great direction to take the blues
I haven't dug a blues guitarist this hard since Montoya came along. Tight clean arrangements,solid material,as a drummer I must complement the drumming and drum and cymbal sounds. I've played this one over and over.

One Drink Away From the Blues
I have an enormous respect for Mark's musical talent and his blues bring me to tears after being filled with deep thought. I have given his CD as gifts to friends and continue to do so. I am anxiously awaiting his next CD. Mark is the best not only as humble, honest man, but also he was the friend and guitar teacher for one of our beautiful children for many years. I have a deep admiration and appreciation for Mark's rhythm and blues as it cuts to the bone or "heart of the matter. Reta Heard
