In the summer of 2002, in the midst of an afternoon spent in the coffeehouses of Amsterdam, Steven Mark (www.stevenmarkmusic.com) found himself in the Rock N Roll exhibit at Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum. A virtual cavalcade of moving images of his lifelong 60’s musical heroes — Lennon, Dylan, Townshend, Morrison — spun past as he was listening on his iPod to The Beatles’ “All You Need Is Love,” and the New Yorker’s mind began racing with memories of his lifelong love affair with music.

Poetic images came to him in torrents of love, isolation, religion, politics and sex; and his life as a sometimes musical cover act was over. Dedicating himself to his songwriting when he returned home, he didn’t have to search too far for inspiration. Musically, he channeled what came naturally — a blend of 60’s era psychedelia and the unplugged grunge of the early 90’s to form a unique sound that he describes as “Elliott Smith meets The Byrds with a touch of Alice In Chains Unplugged….1966 meets 1991.”

“Steven Mark plays guitar and sings sweetly but with biting dark lyrics. He has the voice, the acumen and the intellect to take his music to the masses.” — Progressiveworld.net
