Mark Brown

When you first listen to Mark Brown, you might find yourself wondering where he’s been and why it took him so long to get here. Combining a sharp eye with a sly sense of humor reminiscent of John Prine, Mark makes songs that hail from everywhere, incorporating ballads, cowboy songs, jigs, sideshow melodies, and field hollers. His songs give voice to craftsmen, broken-hearted mechanics, heavy equipment operators, squatters and girls with their dirt bikes. Like many of his characters, Mark’s been around: after growing up in Maryland, he’s done some farming, worked as a mechanic, spent years as a commercial fisherman in the northern Pacific and worked as a carpenter in the northeastern US. These experiences have influenced his music the way an oak cask influences good whiskey.

Mark’s music is available on your favorite streaming service so you can listen there, or check out a few tracks in the discography and read some reviews. He’s played for people at home here in Ulster County, New York and all over the world; check the gigs page for upcoming shows, or catch a live performance or music video here. I’d love to connect on social media, by email or phone - reach out!

This is from a show we did on the lawn at the Rosendale Cafe last summer. I'm playing along with John Hughes, Ken McGloin and Dean Jones- its always been a pleasure for us to play at our home town venue...
