Biography

“He’s like a swashbuckling son of Johnny Cash, swaying and crooning dramatically”.
“Like Roy Orbison walking down subterranean corridors, alone in the dark.”
—Mick Mercer

******************************************************************************************

Mark Sinnis is a New York music scene veteran. He has been writing a dark blend of Rock, Country and Alternative music since 1998 to create his signature modern “Cemetery & Western” sound, with thought-provoking lyrics.

Mark, whose music spans over two decades, started his music career as the co-founder and singer/songwriter of the N.Y.C. Punk turned Gothic band Apostates, which lasted for 10 years from 1988 -1998 and released two full length albums and 2 singles. In 1998 he started his current “Cemetery & Western” rock band, Ninth House, and is the sole songwriter for the group.

With a distinctive voice that has been acclaimed as a hybrid of vocal greats like Johnny Cash and Roy Orbison, Sinnis’s music incorporates dark undertones as well as traditional Country music with a contemporary modern edge.

Mark’s debut album “Into An Unhidden Future” contained 19 tracks and was released in 2008. It contained both old songs from Apostates and new ones, all introduced with his new acoustic stripped down sound. The album “A Southern Tale” followed in 2009, which contained the title song about Memphis and Elvis’s Graceland. This album, although subdued, captured a more focused “Cemetery & Western” sound.
