Bio: ---------------------------------------------- Mark Mathis is reminiscent of the instrumentation of parlor-rock greats, 'Hem' combined with the grit of Jeff Tweedy's, 'Wilco', and the addictive qualities of 'Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers'. His style has been described as 'blue-collar rock', 'indiecana', and 'dark folk'.

Mark Mathis comes from a rich musical and artistic heritage from the Southeast. His grandfather was a true southern gentleman who painted landscapes of his beloved coastal towns and had a love for mexico.

His grandmother played elaborate, liturgical organ music and taught piano to mark at an early age. He eventually forsook the piano in an acto of rebellion and began to play the guitar in his new band, 'the mustard seeds'. This began his long-time collaboration with his guitarist and friend, John Mark Mcmillan. The music took various transformations in the Charlotte,NC music scene until the two parted ways and began their own solo careers. Four albums later, Mark Mathis is touring, working on a new side project, 'public radio' and is writing for a new solo album, hopefully both will come out in 2008.
