Mark Steven Brocke is a guitarist, composer, singer, song writer. Born February 13, 1972 in Torrance, CA, Mark was the youngest of seven children and grew up in a home that was saturated in musical diversity. From his Mother’s constant singing of traditional Mexican folk songs and American pop standards to his siblings 60’s, 70’s & 80’s Rock, Progressive Rock, R&B, Pop, New Wave & Heavy Metal records, to his Dad’s snazzy lowrey organ playing, there was always music in the air and Mark absorbed and eventually learned to appreciate and draw from it all. Mark began playing guitar at the age of 10, after being convinced by his future brother-in-law to learn CCR’s “Born on The Bayou” just to bother his sister, who had a special dislike for that particular song.

Shortly thereafter Mark was bitten by the guitar bug and fully captivated after hearing Rush’s Alex Lifeson on “La Villa Strangiato”, “Broone’s Bane”, “The Trees” and “Discovery”. Thus began four years of classical guitar lessons which formed the foundation of Mark’s signature fingerstyle acoustic sound. Mark’s style has been influenced by a wide variety of guitarists including Phil Keaggy, Pat Metheny, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Chet Atkins, Andres Segovia, Les Paul, Doyle Dykes, Alex Lifeson, Steve Howe, Earl Klugh and many others from various musical genres. In 2005 Mark’s debut album “Mark Steven Brocke – Completed” was released and won the 2005 “Instrumental Artist of The Year” Momentum Award from Nashville based www.indieheaven.com.

Receiving this award and opening for Phil Keaggy in the same night was one of Mark’s career highlights. Mark currently plays solo in the Sacramento and Sierra Foothills area and also leads worship at Bayside Church of Central Roseville, CA. Mark is also involved in and available for various studio recording projects in a variety of guitar styles and genres. Stay tuned for a new album of all original instrumental and vocal tunes in the near future! Read more on Last.fm.
