Mark Ward refers to two completely different artists: 1 - Mark Ward acoustic singer/songwriter from Washington State, USA. 2 - Mark Ward electronic/ambient musician from Sheffield, UK. 1 - Mark Ward is an acoustic singer/songwriter from Washington State who has had the chance to share the stage with many established acts such as Gavin Degraw, Gary Jules, Josh Kelley, Joshua Radin, Schuyler Fisk, guitarist Eric Johnson and Jim Bianco. Mark blends moving lyrics about life and love into artfully arranged songs that draw comparisons to artists such as Damien Rice for their intensity and sincerity. Mark’s songwriting has a subtle emotional pull reminiscent of Elliot Smith, combined with a sweet spirit all his own. Whether playing solo or backed by a band, Mark’s songs move easily from haunting and melodic to powerfully guitar-driven, emphasizing his love of well-written music and his own folky lyrical style.

Mark Ward’s creative mix includes strings and guitar loops, and displays an ever-evolving sound that he performs with energy and charm to a growing fan base across Washington State and the country. Mark is currently gearing up for a series of shows and tours in support of his self-released debut E.P. "Broken." Songwriting accolades: 2008 Susquehanna arts and and music festival songwriter competition finalist 2007 Best album nominee, Spokane music awards 2 - Mark Ward was born in Sheffield, UK, he grew up in the late 1960’s and early1970’s and was greatly influenced by the creative explosion of that era. He studied Fine Art at Sheffield and Kingston-upon-Hull colleges of art from 1972 to 1976. His passion for music began with The Beatles and 1960’s pop music as a child, progressed during the blues boom and progressive rock era of the early 1970’s on to jazz-rock and more experimental forms. Although interested in a broad spectrum of music he is tending more and more towards, “deep” music usually without vocals these days, whether that be the various forms of ambient music, techno, house or truly way out experimental electronic music. He has played the guitar for 40+ years and although he has no formal music training he brings his Fine Art training to bear on his music making process.

There is more cross-over than you might at first imagine. Composition is composition whether expressed visually or in sound. Mark is interested in electronica, ambient music, drones, soundscapes and atmospheres, field recording, IDM, post-rock etc. He is currently experimenting with electronic music in Ableton Live and various other software using guitar, keyboard and field recordings.
