Tall stories – truth, lies and everything in between. A prolific songwriter and seasoned storyteller, choosing acoustic guitar & vocals as the main weapons, with occasional asthmatic harmonica. Expect to laugh and cry.

This is folk and country blues, with urban smarts. You’ll hear upbeat foot-tapping hoe-downs, slinky sultry mood pieces and beautiful aching ballads. Follow the bittersweet storylines, get caught in unpredictable landslides – songs that never forget you.

As a solo performer and with his acoustic trio, Mark brings together many years of touring experience covering the Byron Bay Blues & Roots Festival, St. Kilda Festival, Brunswick Music Festival, the Adelaide Fringe, the Darwin Festival, the Seabreeze Festival, the Woodford Dreaming Festival, countless pubs & clubs along Australia’s east coast and overseas tours to Bali, Vietnam and Europe.

  1. Hello Mark
    You are certainly a very creative being. Very talented. Nice sense of humour.
    Today, on the birthday of Sri Swami Sivananda, we would like to thank you for all your wonderful work and devotion in helping to spread the message of Sivananda during those early years in Brisbane.
    Swami Anasaktananda (Yogi Syama), asks about you. He remembers you with much affection. He always refers to you as ‘Subramanya’. He asks you to please visit sometime, if you are able, whenever you are on the Sunshine Coast.
