Mark Geary - Live songs from the forest
10pm Irish time. On Mark's Instagram page.
Irish singer-songwriter Mark Geary left Ireland with a one-way ticket to New York and a heart full of hope over twenty years ago. There, in Sin-e cafe, Mark honed his craft and sang alongside the best of them, including the late Jeff Buckley. Time Out NY said, “His delicate songs about love and defiance recall Richard Thompson and John Lennon.”
With six studio and two live albums, touring and live performances are still Mark's lifeblood. Interchanging between his beloved well-worn Martin and vintage Spanish guitars, Geary’s sound is stripped back. He treats his songs with trade-mark Geary honesty. His voice might be coated in Irish honey, but his lyrics cut to the core revealing a life laid bare of human frailty, failed relationships, tenderness, hurt, making amends, desire and parting.
Geary has featured on bills with musicians as diverse as Joe Strummer, Elvis Costello, The Pretenders, Coldplay and The Frames amongst others. Plus extensive headlining tours in Europe, the US and more recently in Switzerland where he received critical acclaim.
Mark’s single The Forest is exquisite. A beautiful sound, it's quiet and evocative and builds to a crescendo, reminiscent of overflowing verdant Summer Irish forests.
Mark's new single 'Spectre' will be released on 11th December.
