Introducing Mark Ward (Northwest Folklife Festival)
I hope Mark doesn't mind me cribbing some of the accolades on his website, but these comments aptly honor Mark's music.
"When you're one person with a guitar, you better have something compelling to separate yourself from all your like-minded compatriots. Ward definitely does-a magnetic, spine-tinglingly beautiful voice." -Jeff Echert, The Inlander (Oct 20, 2008)
" The incandescent crackle of a young songwriter taking the lens of his musical idols and turning it upon himself, finding something sad, hopeful and unique. " - Luke Baumgarten, The Inlander (Oct 18, 2007)
"A finalist in the Susquehanna Music and Arts Festival's national songwriting competition earlier this year, Mark Ward is a hard-working (usually solo) performer who frequently surprises audiences by looping melodica lines while playing guitar and kick drum. " - Joel Smith, The Inlander (Jul 17, 2008)
