Mark’s acoustic performance at The REC Rooms in the summer became one of those nights that people will talk about for years. We can’t believe we’ve got him back so soon!
If you’re not aware of Mark then here’s a quick summary, but just go listen to some of his music & you’ll realise just how many of his song’s you already know (& probably love).
Mark famously made his name fronting English indie outfit The Bluetones. He fronted the four piece as singer/songwriter over a successful and fruitful 15 year period, scoring 14 top ten singles and 3 top ten albums, whilst touring the UK, Europe and Japan, before temporarily disbanding in 2011.
After releasing ‘Memory Muscle’ in 2008, 2013 saw the release of ‘A Flash of Darkness’, raising the recording funds via a successful Pledge Music campaign with the album subsequently being given general release by none other than Acid Jazz Records. In the summer of 2015 Mark recorded and released ‘The Taste of Mark Morriss’ for Acid Jazz. At the same time as producing and touring his own solo material, Mark produced Theme and Chapter music for the audio versions of David Walliams’ successful series of children’s books, from ‘The Boy in the Dress’ right through to his latest, ‘The Midnight Gang’, all released on Harper Collins.
Since 2013 Mark has also been a member of Acid Jazz label-mate Matt Berry’s touring band The Maypoles. Mark’s latest album ‘Look Up’ completes an extensive catalogue.
