Mark’s 12-song debut CD “American All Star” was nominated by the Independent Country Music Association for Indie Country Record of 2012! From “Country Night” and “Someday” to hard driving “Smackdab” and “Let Me Know That You’re Mine!” the 12 tracks are strong. No B-side cuts here! There is even a killer 2-step dance cover of John Denver’s classic “Rocky Mountain High”!
American Allstar was produced by David Simmons for David and Goliath Music and recorded at Secret Sound Studio in Baltimore Maryland with Grammy nominated producer, engineer and musician John Grant. In addition to Mark’s slick vocals and David’s direction, writing and performances, John Grant played keyboards, guitars, bass, and mandolin and sang background harmonies that give American Allstar it’s unique sound and feel. Special guest Mark Beauchamp puts the icing on the cake with his awesome pedal steel guitar performances.
This album’s throwback style, combined with a modern, edgy country-rock feel, results in a great snapshot of American culture and new mixed musical genres.
