Biography

He may only be 23 years old, but singer/songwriter Mark Alan has already experienced a roller coaster ride as a recording artist. The troubadours spent the past nine years in the spotlight, first appearing in a pair of Minneapolis based bands before running the solo route, which hes successfully straddled full time for the past five years. Along the way hes sold out a pressing of his 2001 indie album Here I Am, racked up an additional string of sales with 2004’s Something That Lasts and broke additional boundaries both publicly and critically with 2005’s The Broken EP. Along the way hes kept a steady concert calendar, hitting at least a hundred shows across the country each year, including opening slots for the likes of Dove Award winners Jeremy Camp and Sanctus Real.

Add in acclaim at the internationally recognized United Kingdom Songwriting Contest (where his hit Got Me Flyin scored the best Christian/Gospel song nod in 2005 and his ballad Fragmented Dreams made it to the finals) and the journey has truly been productive. But take a listen to any of Alan’s exceptional albums, catch him in concert, experience a service where hes leading worship or meet him on the street and the troubadour is anything but the type of guy whod pump himself up. Instead he’ll be the first to give God the glory, while asserting his artistry is merely a tool to win souls towards salvation.

“The deal is, this is the direction in which Ive been called and I feel a big sense of security knowing this is what Im supposed to be doing,” Alan relates. “I’m not defined by what I do, which is a common trap a lot of artists can fall into.
