Mark Austin King on SoundBetter

I play guitar and piano in the multi-platinum rock band, Hinder. I’ve been blessed enough to play on 5 different continents and have played shows with such bands as Aerosmith, Mötley Crue and G’N’R. I am endorsed by Gibson guitars and Ernie Ball strings.

I specialize in rhythm guitar, piano and string arrangements. I'd love a chance to help you with your project!

    Mark helped me perfect a song written for my 15 year old. He is a super talented musician, very responsive, and turns projects around in a very timely fashion. I would highly recommend Mark for anyone who wants to shake things up with their project.
