Mark Bishop Evans
Mark grew up in southern California where his major musical influences outside of church were Gordon Lightfoot, Bob Dylan, Peter, Paul and Mary, Paul Simon, the Beach Boys and pretty much any folk, folk rock or beach music.
Originally a trumpet player, his desire to sing cause the transition to guitar in his early teens. Listening and playing the folk and protest music of the 60's inspired him to begin writing his own songs.
His musical migration has taken him through rock, Latin, pop, country, gospel and back to folk where it all began. Mark has a way with words and melodies, bringing them together in pleasant and meaningful combinations that make you want to tap your feet and sing along. His music is an intriguing blend of Folk, folk rock and ballads, lyrically rich in emotional content and melodically comfortable like a favorite jacket. Like a close friend you want to sing along with.
Mark relocated north of Boston, Massachusetts in the early 90's and considers himself and "Noreasta".
