I share here from time to time… just random tidbits. (hence the title)  Enjoy!

MM returns to the Artist First Radio Network

In June 2007, Mark joined host Scott "Zman" Z. for a free-wheeling 80-minute interview about life, music and the release of "New Eye", on the Artist First Radio Network. Ten years to the month later, Mark will rejoin Scott to talk about his…

The Born Wired album is DONE.

After about five years, and countless hours, the Born Wired album is finally FINISHED. 13 tracks - 10 originals and 3 covers... it's some of the best stuff I've ever done. Within the next 3 weeks, you'll see an Indiegogo campaign to get…

A tip for Bandcamp artists... making download cards.

An absolutely foolproof method for making download cards with Bandcamp and just plain Avery labels. I use Bandcamp to get my music out there.  It's an awesome tool for artists - not just for selling music, but for different means of distributing…

A wonderful night at The Falcon

Just a followup on the Falcon gig on the 27th! These guys just slammed it.  Had an amazing time.  We had a few technical difficulties, but it was a great first foray, and we're itching to do it again! And speaking of slamming it…

MM at the Falcon

Over the past two weeks, a bunch of my energy has been taken up with prepping for this show. It’s the first time I’ve played my own stuff out in a decade. And the band backing me up is just AMAZING. I can’t begin to express how jazzed I am to be sharing the stage with Slam Allen… he is one of my heroes – I’ve literally seen him live more than any other act.

A VERY special show.

  Those of you who follow me know that I rarely, if ever, play my original material live. Well, that's about to change. On January 27th, I'll be opening for the Blues/Soul master Slam Allen at The Falcon in Marlboro, NY, playing…

My yearly ode

New Year's Eve with the Dave Fields All-Stars!

I'll be sitting in with my buddy - and musical wizard - Dave Fields for a slamming New Year's Eve celebration at Ranchero Cantina in Emerson, NJ! This is going to be a BLAST. If you're looking for an awesome New Year's - well... here you…

Once upon a time, there was an Awesome podcast. Farewell, with love.

Once upon a time, back in 2007... I had this album called New Eye. And as indie musicians were want to do, I was searching for places where I might, possibly, maybe if I was lucky... get my music played... (and, if I was incredibly lucky,…

OOH! The tracks! 🙂

So as the time gets nearer, I thought I'd post a tracklist for the new albums.  This is NOT necessarily the final order.  🙂 Born Wired Where I play Secret In Love Again You Used Ta Just The Man No Time Sally Runaway Dream Bend Glide Come…

Born Wired cover

So here's my dilemma. Jess pointed out that some folks might not know what my initial cover design said if they didn't know the album title. So I put it to you... can you read the first B/W version, or should I go with one where all of…

Join me...

I've been playing and recording multiple instruments since I was 11 - and recording full songs since I was about 13. Most of this activity occurred alone in a room.  Fast forward a bunch of years, and the room is way better - but most…
