Mark Abis: Biography

Dj Alchemy claims that legendary Producer (Pink Floyd, Nick Drake, REM) ‘Joe Boyd’ is not a man you can easily impress! Yet, Joe Boyd has written the following about Mark Abis: ‘Going back to the mid-Sixties, I have heard more than any one man’s share of singer-songwriter’s. So it takes a lot to get my attention. His melodies are original, his vocals warm and distinctive, a real musical sensibility is obvious, with literary lyrics to boot. My vote for one of the best of the new generation.’

Mark’s talent has also been recognised by others, including the beautiful Emiliana Torrini who recorded a version of the ‘Abis’ penned song ‘Summerbreeze’ on her ‘Love in the time of Science album’.

“Summerbreeze” has also been featured on television programmes including Brothers & Sisters, Secret Diary of a Call Girl, and Buffy the Vampire Slayer. The song was included on the 2003 official soundtrack album Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Radio Sunnydale.
His song “For a Woman’s Love” was featured on the television programme Eli Stone.

Abis first cut his teeth in the cafes and folk cellars of London where he performed his spell binding set alongside future stars such as Keziah Jones, Paddy Casey and The Hank Dogs.’ He later formed a working relationship with Francis Eg White (Producer and Ivor Novello winner) who produced ‘Changing Inside’ Abis’‘first album.
