......there have been a number of requests for lyrics as of late from those of you who have downloaded this album from one of the multitiude of CD Baby's digital distribution partners. If you are one of those nice people, please check out Mark's website by clicking on the website link in the lefthand column. You'll find all the lyrics there (by clicking on the song titles) plus full length streaming samples of every song for those of you who haven't heard them all yet! And...check out Mark's newest album 'Indigo Moon' - right here at CD Baby! Now here's some history.... Mark was born in Kansas City, Missouri and raised in a musical family where the earliest influences were his mother's guitar and mandolin playing. Having begun learning the mandolin around age 10, a year or so later he developed an intense interest in the guitar. Like his mother, he learned to play 'by ear' and also learned to sing. Unlike his mother, whose interests were centered on traditional American folk, country, and bluegrass, he was fascinated with the modern folk, rock, and pop of the '60s and '70s. However all the styles made an indelible impression on him. Cultivating and developing his talent in numerous bands through high school and later as a professional touring musician, most notably with an acoustic duo known as 'M.C. & DeFeis' and a variety dance band named 'Legacy', he was exposed to and influenced by the many different genres of music embodied in the cover material he performed. Although he had felt compelled to write songs from the very beginning, his experience grew and he discovered that writing was, for him, the most expressive and satisfying. He has explored and taught himself all the instruments he utilizes in his recordings but songwriting truly remains his primary passion. Many years later, having steadily worked towards his vision and relocated to the Minneapolis/St. Paul area in 1999, Mark has accomplished a portion of his dreams by starting his own label, Io Music Ltd., and building a private studio where he writes, records, and produces his music. His newest album, 'In The Moment', is an autobiographical collection of songs that highlight the distinctive point of view and style of this continually maturing singer/songwriter. It's an album worth listening to. ******* WHAT THIS ALBUM IS ABOUT: Feeling music with some guts and emotion in the center and some sugar on top. Kinda along the lines of Marc Cohn, Josh Groban, Dan Fogelberg, Harry Chapin, Neil Diamond, Kansas,Crosby Stills Nash & Young,journey and James Taylor to name a few. But that's just what various people have told me. It's a little hard to be objective seeing how it's me that writes the stuff. That part's up to you. I'd rather write it and feel it than analyze it. Like Elac Morfo Pock. (and what does THAT mean in Klingon?) Read on....... A new music genre: Elac Morfo Pock....... In order to best describe the music written and performed by Mark Cullen, one may need to invent new words not found in the English (or any other) language. What immediately comes to mind is, naturally, Elac Morfo Pock. Roughly translated this would be 'ELectric / ACoustic Middle-Of-the-Road FOlk, Pop, rOCK'. But it is a rough translation and fails to do justice, not only to the written works, but to the ultimate sound of Mark Cullen. So let's just leave it at Elac Morfo Pock. Enough on the new genre... Let me focus on the talent exhibited here. First, this new album is in it's entirety, the product of
