Hot Rod Surf Pinstriping Techniques 2
The Green Leaf is the experimental rock music of Mark Whitney Mehran also known as MWM. MWM is a self taught musician with a classic rock style which incorporates 1960's style rock & roll guitar with modern free form composition which includes acoustic and electric songs. MWM composes, arranges, and plays all of the instruments and vocals on The Green Leaf recordings after 1996. In the mid to late 1990's The Green Leaf toured the independent music club scene for a number of years playing live shows as a traditional three piece rock outfit. Born and raised in California Mark Whitney Mehran draws on his unique and adventurous lifestyle for inspiration for The Green Leaf music. From owning and operating a local surf shop in South Mission Beach San Diego (where he recorded the M.T.G. and Carnival of Corruption albums), to building and racing hot rods and motorcycles at the HOT ROD SURF garage, MWM's creativity is expressed in the diversity of his expansive catalog of creative works which include authoring books, producing independent movies, designing turbo charging systems for his Harley race motorcycle, breeding pure breed Doberman Pinchers, and authoring automotive tech artilces. MWM lives in San Diego, California.
