Mark Harrison's highly individual songs have been attracting a lot of attention since he launched himself on the London music scene in 2010. He takes elements of blues and folk, adding his own twist to produce something totally original. His music, with its memorable tunes and strong and compelling rhythms, has been going down very well with audiences of all kinds and ages.
Mark's songs cover a wide range of non-standard themes, from observations of the way we live today to imaginings of the era of the early blues greats. They all have something to say or a story to tell. They'll make you move, make you think, make you smile.
Mark is an adept rhythmic finger-picker and slide player, with a very distinctive style and sound. He plays a 1934 National resonator guitar and a 12-string guitar.
Mark plays in various line-ups, solo and with double bass, mandolin, female vocalist, harmonica and drums/percussion. His band consists of some of London's most highly regarded roots musicians.
Since releasing his debut CD, Watching The Parade, which was enthusiastically received, Mark has been doing regular gigs in established venues, as well as supporting touring artists and appearing on radio shows. His second album, Crooked Smile, has just been released.
