Singer/Songwriter/Topliner for major artists with Chart success looking to enhance your track. I sing and write with emotion, soul, power and nuance.
I'm always up for a collaborative approach to writing (or can work solo on your project - whatever the job entails) and will do as many redos until the track is finished. I record clean vocals that I send dry to you.
I've had tracks played on FOX's "Pitch", SYFY's "The Magicians" films such as PAWNO, Measure for Measure, Commercials (RENAULT, ,TOYOTA, AUTOBARN, TYREPOWER).
I've notched up writing credits with
My band Texture Like Sun has supported these notable acts:
I've had well over a MILLION streams on Spotify and features on major Spotify playlists. I've also had chart success on the US ITUNES Charts.
For your project I will have a quick turnaround and I'm very communicative.
I'm actually excited to work on new projects and create a great track for you.
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

Wow didnt know you can sing with so much power thanks for the nice work.
top of the line, mainstream quality singer !!
Excellent vocals and very professional!
Texture is great to work with. He is thorough and diligent.
Texture has been the best reincarnation of Jeff Buckley. He had shown amazing versatility, demonstrated in his capacity to sing from mellow blues to hard rock songs.
Overall a good job. The reason i am giving only 4 stars is because it took a little longer than expected. However, Mark was very responsive to revision requests which is much appreciated. Vocals were sung very well.
Rare and wonderful raspy vocals. Easy to work with and great results. Recommended!
A+ pro and great vocalist, highly recommend.

He answered every question we had.
Very convenient to work with. And the result is really good!
