Mark Jungers & the Whistling Mules The Bio Mark Jungers Mark Jungers is no stranger to the Americana roots music scene. He's been playing it for years- since well before the term 'Americana' was coined- because in his world, country, roots rock, folk, and bluegrass music need not be mutually exclusive. Mark and his band play what is the heart of Americana: gutsy, unpretentious music filled with spirit and spontaneity. Mark Jungers was born and raised in a small farming community called Bird Island, Minnesota, about 80 miles West of Minneapolis. When his father died young, Mark and his brothers were left to carry on the family farm...or lose it. It was then that the steadfast work ethic of the American farmer was instilled in Mark. But his musical drive would not be denied. He would often sneak up into the hay barn late at night to play guitar and write songs. To this day, the family farm thrives, as does Mark Jungers' songwriting. Mark was in a number of bands in his youth before graduating in Minneapolis with a degree in electronics and sound engineering. Soon thereafter, he moved to Austin, Texas. There, Jungers soon became a major player in the mid 80's Austin music scene, playing with such bands as Straight Up, Hell's Caf, and The Masons. In the fall of 1994, he left Texas for New Haven, Connecticut to join his then wife-to-be, Joy, while she finished her education. It was there that Mark was finally able to concentrate on his songwriting, for himself rather than for a band. But being without a band did not last long: He was soon adopted to front the Motel Preachers who went on to win Best New Band, and second place, Best Country Band in New Haven before he and Joy, homesick, returned to Central Texas in July of 1997. They continue to make their home in Martindale, Texas, on the San Marcos River. The songwriting continued and he soon formed what is now Mark Jungers & the Whistling Mules: Mark singing lead vocals and playing rhythm guitar and harmonica; Adrian Schoolar on lead guitar, dobro, and harmony vocals; Wes Green on mandolin, fiddle, and harmony vocals; and David Goldsby on electric bass and high harmony vocals. Their first CD, Black Limousine, was intended to be a mere chronicle of their musical efforts. Three reprints later, much airplay, and a strong Texas following made way for their second release, Standing in Your Way, which also earned great reviews. One For the Crow was born from necessity: Mark and the band still had much more to say. The uniqueness and variety of Mark Jungers' music is well demonstrated by the bills the band has shared. They have played with The Derailers, Gary P. Nunn, Slaid Cleaves, Slobberbone, Sisters Morales, Roger Creager, Trout Fishing in America, Billy Joe Shaver, Charlie Robison, Cooder Graw, and the list goes on... Mark's commitment to the art of songwriting remains evident on his third release. His songs, real and honest, capture the American spirit. Hearty musicianship only adds to the experience. All of the songs on One For the Crow are masterfully arranged and produced, exemplifying Lars Goransson's well deserved title as Best Producer in the 2004 Austin Music Awards. This CD will capture national attention...or something's terribly wrong.
