WARNING: Listening to this music doesn't require parental approval. It's a bit of clean rebellion. It keeps your outlook up and your hope alive. It's got strong drums and screaming guitars. It pumps you up and drives your life. It's a hunger for exploration. It chooses the right and returns with honor. It's music you don't have to confess to your bishop.

It's not your parents' "Saturday’s Warrior".

It's "A Joyful Noise"

Singin' on Memory Lane

A few weeks ago, I thought with horror that I might have lost many of the songs I did many years ago.  I had them on a hard drive in a USB shell, and the hard drive went kaput.  Well, today I found that many of them were also backed up on some CD-Rom's as mp3's. 


So, I've been listening to them.

A lot of people that have found me in recent years might think that "One United Generation" was my debut.  In many ways, it was.  It was my first attempt at recordings of a more serious quality.  But for many years before that, I had been writing, recording and developing my craft.  I've got some 30-40 songs recorded (really only demo quality) that make up the time before "Generation".  That includes the tunes I cut for that first cassette, released in 1993, called "A Joyful Noise". 

It sure is fun to listen back to all those tunes and go down memory lane.  Sometimes I think I should release those old recordings.  Then I listen to them again and hear how horrible the singing was back then, and I realize that'll never happen!  :-)

I was just talking with my friend, though, and thought it would be cool to make a "Best of" CD and re-do some of those old tunes.  Or maybe I'll do one as a "Vintage Track" on each CD from here on out.  Who knows?

Come back often to hear about new songs and shows. Mark also has other sites and blogs, including his Dutch Oven blog: Mark's Black Pot and his LDS pop culture blog: MoBoy blog.
