REVIEW snippet -
“The vocals are heartbreaking in the best way and bare more than a passing resemblance to the late, great Jeff Buckley. Texture Like Sun manages to make their blues-tinged folk sound creep into every corner of the room and consume the audience from the inside out… Nothing about Texture Like Sun comes close to ordinary and their set is near perfection….” – Tone Deaf

Excelent vocalist, songwriter and all around person. It was pretty easy working with Mark!
Awesome working with Mark. His soulful sound brought a lot to my song, and turnaround for revisions were quick. Love the gentle grittiness of his voice. Hope to work together again soon.
