|The Kids are always good|
|She was such a pretty girl|
|Daddy's turn to cry|
Mark is currently working with madam Weez on her new CD. Mark produced her first cd "Reflections" released in 2009. Mark worked with his son Mark Jr on a 5 song country project with Jr serving as engieneer. Two of the songs appear here ( "Daddy's turn to cry" and "Such a pretty girl")
Now a studio musician and producer, Mark played with several local bands. Mark produced artist Madam Weez for Circle H records release in 2005. Mark also played bass for artists on the same label, including Ray Harris' CD "Reinventing the wheel". "The kids are always good" this is a Christmas song for my daughter when she was about 6. "Daddy's turn to cry" was another song inspired my my daughter. This wedding song was written when she was about 2. The final song "She was such a pretty girl" was inspired by a true story I saw on A&E channel, it was about a murder in my wife's home town. I used poetic licence with this one and wrote the song through the eyes of the killer. I wanted to use blue grass sound because rock would have totally destroyed the song making it too disgusting. When it was recorded, I told my son I wanted it to sound like "The Darlings" from the Andy Griffith show. I had Mark watch some episodes before mixing. I think he got the idea!
