Sando Show Cancelled....
I'm really really really Sorry about not showing up to my own gig at the Sando in Sydney on thurs night.
I was struck down with a horrible virus on Thurs afternoon and was violently ill. I was eventually rushed to hospital where the stuck a drip and a bunch of drugs in my arm.
This is the first time I've ever had to cancel a show due to illness and I hope it's the last.
I am really sorry for the people who made it down to the gig only to get told the news. It was a last minute decision to cancel, as I was hoping I was going to come good.
I am truly sorry for putting everyone out as I know there were folks who travelled big distances and got babysitters and all the rest, so once again "I'm sorry".
Anyways, I hope everyone is having a better start to 2008 than I am!
Will be in touch soon,
Thanks again for all your loyal support!
Mark.

It's FREE to get in and I'll be performing with the full electric band...
I'm really lookin forward to this.. I just came from a rehearsal and the boys

I can't wait to crank the volume to eleven and get back in the electric saddle
again.. so to speak.

Here's the address...
1604 8th Ave S
Nashville, Tennessee 37203
(It's a really small room - so will fill up fast!)


2. I've got some really exciting news comin... probably next week...
I can't spill the beans just yet... but it will involve YOU personally!
So stand by! and put your video camera on charge! (that's all I'm sayin...)
Stay tuned!!!

Hey Folks,
Mark here...
For the first time in my life I'm absolutley freezing in December!
It's quite a strange sensation... I'm used to backyard cricket and beers on ice, not below zero temperatures!

Anyways, a few things....

1. For those in Nashville or in the area - I'm doing a show at 12th & Porter
this Thursday at around 8.00pm...
So come on down.. It's FREE to get in...

2. Have begun mixing the four songs that I've been painstakingly recording over
the last 2 months..
So should be able to play everyone something in the next few weeks! Hooray!

3. Did a cool photo shoot the other day - so will be putting up some new photos
in the next week or so as well.

4. Santa Clause doesn't exist... I know this cause my brother John told me when
I was 4.
I was a little upset at the time, but not half as upset as the members of Saint
Columbas Class 1A whom I proceeded to tell as well.
I remember Mrs Crawford calling me back after class and saying " hey kid, you
and I know he doesn't exist, but there's no need to tell the whole class!"
It was my first detention.... I was well on my way!


I'll drop ya'all a line before Christmas (may even have a present for ya).
Till then enjoy the festive season!

Mark.

P.S I've been tripping all around the States playing guitar for other artist
lately..
you can read all about in on my blog...

Like a Lizard Drinking….
November 26, 2006


Hey guys,
Sorry for not posting sooner - I think this is my slackest ever.. but have been absolutely flat out…
I think I mentioned earlier that I’ve been working with an artist called Donovan Chapman..
Well we had a pretty crazy last couple of weeks..
We went oto LA for a night, then Bakersfield and played at Buck Owens club, then back to LA, then over to Philadelphia, then Gettysburg (where yes John they have an address) and then to Scranton, then back to Nashville…
The gigs went well - and were for the most part fun… Donovan is a good guy and talented which makes doing the gigs easier….

The last gig in Scranton was at a honkytonk club called “The Wild Horse”.. man I haven’t seen that many cowboy hats since the RM Williams show in Tamworth!
We supported Tracey Lawrence (some big American country star) and afterwards I just hang out in the crowd and talked to people… IT was very interesting.. most of the folks were great people - but there were a few that were … um….how do you say REDNECK?? WOW - some of the thinking (or lack there of) that these guys had - was unbelievable!!!! As if they were living 50 yrs ago! and there’s no such thing as equal rights as far as they went! It was actually really shocking!
But - that was just a couple of people, and for the most part everyone was really great! I guess you always get a couple of dickheads no matter where you go….

It was Thanksgiving on Thursday… am still trying to discover exactly what that means - but I think it’s just an excuse to catch up with family and eat an awful lot of Turkey.. so it can’t be all bad.. I actually felt a little homesick that day - first time in a while.

Doing a photo shoot today, so we’ll see what happens there… if any of the shots turn out good - I’ll be sure to post them on the site…

Am back in the studio on Monday - we are getting close! It’s taken heaps longer than I wanted it too, but these things can’t be helped…

I think I’m going to Kansas for another gig on Tuesday night - but not sure yet, otherwise will just be in the studio all week trying to finish these recordings….

Hope everyone is good!

Talk soon,

Mark.

Hi from Florida
November 12, 2006


Hey folks...
am down in Pensicola Florida playing guitar for another artist.. it was a really great opportunity to see some other parts of the country...

Went to the after party for the CMAs the other night - which was pretty cool... felt like a rockstar hob nobbing with all the big wigs... and then I winged about a $10 cab ride back to my studio apartment - so that bought me back down to earth a little....
Was good though!

Just heard today that Belinda Emmet died.... that’s really sad! She was a really beautiful person.. I wrote a song with her and did some gigs with her a few years back and she was just a really cool chick.... My sympathies go out to Rove and all her family...

Head back to Nashville tomorrow (8hr drive!) then in the studio all day Monday - then fly out Monday nigth to LA to do some guitar work for another artist - Donovan Chapman… then trip from Bakersfield, to Pensylvania to Philadephia then back to Nashville on Friday for another day in the studio working on my thing!
So it’s go go go at the moment... All good though!

Talk soon,

Mark.

P.S the tunes are coming up really well.. I had a banjo player come in and lay some stuff down on Good Thing Gone on Wednseday.. he was unbelieveable!!!!!!!!
