Tennessee native (now relocated)in Louisiana, Mark Kerr never found success beyond his grasp. From the age of twelve his course was clear, and from his earliest days in music he has built bridges that have connected him, not to his peers alone, but to the world at large.
Mark picked up the guitar at the age of twelve and before long, he was receiving recognition for his musical abilities. Where as many kids at twelve years of age may be content to watch television or to hang out with others of their own age, Mark had one singularly focused ambition.
Mark would eventually play with Percy Sledge and Rock and Roll Hall of Famers Curtis Mayfield's Impressions. After thirteen years of touring, Mark attended Northwestern State University where he studied music theory, while working very diligently on his jazz, blues and rock skills.
Mark was nominated for Musician of the Year by The Academy of Texas Music, for his guitar work on One Drink Away From The Blues.
Mark was inducted into the National Heritage Foundation Blues Hall of Fame.
