After several years of performing as a full-time musician, established well within the Brisbane covers scene as a soloist and with his popular party band Angry Dwarf, Mark returned to rekindle the fire that eternally burned inside to write, record and perform his own music, independently releasing a debut EP called Otherside in mid 2008.

Influenced by many musical genres and styles, Mark’s sound is uniquely his own.

Traces of these influences are evident throughout his original material and while maintaining solid rock foundations his music stems out to cross over to a number of other genres including pop, country, alternate and more…

With songs ranging from simple stripped back acoustic purity through to catchy guitar driven pop/rock, Mark’s music is bound for commercial success and likened to a blend of world renowned artists. Think Matchbox 20 meets the Foo Fighters and you’re in the zone that Mark sets himself out to be!

As a covers artist Mark knows how to entertain an audience. And you can see that the size and diversity of his covers repertoire, to which songs re constantly added, allows him to cater to practically every age group in every situation, whether it be an acoustic Sunday session or a rocking Friday night, Mark has you covered!
