Bend, Oregon singer/songwriter/guitarist with jam-band tendencies. Mark’s music transforms bits of jazz, folk, and funky, guitar-driven rock n roll into a clever style of heavy-americana. He is a prolific songwriter whose passion for the arts led him to a formal study of creative process and psychological wellbeing. His new CD, Teleport People, explores this theme on personal and cultural levels, while showcasing the incredible musicianship of his band, The Mostest. Mark is the founder and creative director of the The Bend Roots Revival (http://www.bendroots.net), an annual, interactive music festival which supports arts education in his hometown.
