Mark is a versatile and talented player, with a great flair for organisation and arrangement. He has strong people skills and an intelligent, eclectic and mature approach to music. These attributes combined with his ability and work ethic means that one could do a lot worse than hire Mark.

Playing guitar professionally for the past 6 years, I've had the opportunity to play all over the country as well as record in some of the countries finest recording studios. In this capacity I've gained extensive live performance and recording experience. Currently most of my time is taken up playing with various acts and recording my own music but I'm always interested in new projects and the opportunity to play with new people!

I work as an accompanist for vocalists often. Here's A Jazz Affair, one of my many projects; a smooth sophisticated duo, performing jazz standards as well as blues and soul tunes. A Jazz Affair are available for booking for weddings, receptions, restaurants and private functions. Check out the Soundcloud link below for some demos.

After knowing Mark for a year, I believe he takes all his musical practices with a high level of professionalism, never mind his skillful playing. Highly recommended.

During my 4 years in BIMM Dublin I was a member of the house band. In this role I was involved in many different songwriting workshops, recording sessions and official examinations. These sessions involved professionalism, competence and creativity often with very little or no preparation time whatsoever. In such time I had the opportunity to work with many talented young musicians, who will surely form the core of this countries next great generation of songwriters. Watch this space!

I'm also available to deputise for many different situations: corporate bands, weddings, guitar accompaniment etc. Many references available upon request. See the contact page for details.
