Man of My Word
Vintage Ransom! Previously not available online, Man of My Word, Mark's first release, presents an eclectic style: layering bits of pop, bluegrass and jazz onto a down-home 'soul-folk' foundation. This record was recorded on a TASCAM cassett four-track. The audio is lo-fi and rootsy. Despite the home-brew quality of these recordings, many of Mark's fans say this CD showcases some of his best writing...hence it's new appearance here on CD BABY. This album, above all else, showcases Mark's talent as a lyricist and storyteller. Drawing on themes of growth, relationship, and realization, Man Of My Word evokes images that tell the tale of true human nature. Heartfelt, thoughtful songwriting is the true star of this record.
