Mark John is 20-year-old singer songwriter who has busked his way through several guitars and had his fortune told by a fortune teller in a travelling circus, who said he was going to make many records and become a musician.
Growing up Mark John performed as Jean Val Jean in Les Miserables but left theatre in pursuit of pop stardom and a degree in anthropology. A profilic songwriter and a self taught guitarist, Mark gigs regularly across the drinking holes across his native North East.
Mark John’s beautifully crafted acoustic pop is reminiscent of James Bay, George Ezra, Hozier and The Script. His debut EP titled “Long Time Coming” is out on the 20th of May.
