Biography

Mark Wright is a singer/songwriter from Brighton, England who has been performing in front of live audiences for over 15 years. His music has been described as a cross between Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan and Cat Stevens.

He has performed extensively throughout the UK, mainland Europe and the United States working with many promoters and building a genuinely international following for his music and also his spirited live performance.

Having both acted and sung on a stage from the age of 7 years old it was experiencing Bruce Springsteen in concert for the first time that inspired Mark to first pick a guitar and start writing songs.

In March 2003 Mark released his first self-funded album entitled ‘Everything and a Day’ which also featured a Springsteen cover. He toured and promoted the album extensively with the help of ‘Badlands’, the Bruce Springsteen fan club for the United Kingdom.

It was this connection to the Springsteen fan-base that culminated in the summer of 2003 with Mark being included on the album ‘Light of Day: A Tribute to Bruce Springsteen’ alongside such esteemed artists such as Elvis Costello, Billy Bragg, Joe Ely and Nils Lofgren. Mark’s atmospheric, acoustic version of the Springsteen song ‘Two Hearts’ was widely acclaimed and brought Mark’s music to a new worldwide audience.

The album sold tens of thousands of copies and raised over $100,000 for the Light of Day organisation set to raise funds for Parkinson’s and sarcoma research.
Gigs throughout Europe and the United States followed.
