Interview: Mark and The Tiger

Hi Mark! Thank you for chatting with me today!

Thank you so much for having me!

Have you been working on any upcoming projects you want to tell us about?

Actually I’m just about to head into the studio to work on a new LP! It’s a concept album all about the heroes journey. The idea is that every song stands by itself but if you listen to the album from start to finish it will take you on the heroes journey through the underworld and back.

What is your favorite part of the creative process? 

I have two moments that are my favorite. The first is when I’m working on a song (or any piece of art really) and I can see the entirety of the thing come together in my mind. It’s so satisfying to fit all the pieces of things in my brain into a cohesive whole. And then my second favorite part is when that rough outline of the vision finally gets made into the final product. It’s amazing to me how much a song can change from its original incarnation to its ultimate one.

Do you remember when you realized you wanted to pursue music as a career?

I remember it viscerally. I’ve loved to sing my whole life but I never considered doing it as a career. It wasn’t until I moved out to LA in my 20’s that I actually made the leap. I came here to be an actor and then a few years in I wasn’t getting anywhere, I didn’t want to audition for anything, and I was just generally despondent. I ended up going to see Florence and the Machine at the Hollywood Bowl by myself. I love her and I had never been to the Bowl so I splurged on one of those boxes towards the front with the directors chairs. I’ll never forget the moment of watching her dance around on stage and sing her face off when the light bulb went on in my brain and I realized: “THAT’S what I’m supposed to be doing!”

Who would be a dream collaboration for you?

I’ve already started writing my duet with Florence Welch!

Do you have a bucket list, dream job you would like to achieve?

Well I haven’t achieved hardly any of my music dreams yet so I still have lots of stages to play on, music to put out, and collaborations to take part in! But I also have a dream of being a pastry chef on the side.

How do you stay balanced between artist life and normal life?

I think it’s helpful that I’ve been doing music for a long time with only a modicum of success. I’ve had to keep normal life going to survive. It’s been nice in some regards because I’ve had full careers as a yoga teacher and a horse trainer, and I’ve had a lot of other experiences that I probably wouldn’t have been able to if I was touring and working on music full time. But honestly, I’m ready to stop focusing on my normal life and focus solely on music for a while.
