I’m Coming Home For Christmas

Mark has now been living outside of the UK for half his life, and over the years he has tried numerous times to get home for the Christmas holiday’s to see the family and friends, but due to life and living abroad is far from a bed of roses at time he has only managed it a few times in 25+ years. This basically explains what the song is about. Maybe this year 🙂

Recorded in the UK in 2011. ‘What Did I Do To Deserve This’

Mark actually wrote this song in the 90’s while he was kibitzing in Israel, and then on his return home to the UK he semi recorded the song on a 4 track with some local friends who had a Punk band. Mark then left the UK and carried the demo tape (Not memory stick) over to Bali, Indonesia and then Thailand, where he lived for 15 years. It was not until 2010/2011, and after returned back to the UK, that he finally had the funds to finally record.

Recorded in the UK in 2011. ‘Only The Brave Carry On’

‘Only The Brave Carry On’ was written and composed in 2010 in the UK and then studio recorded in the UK in 2011. The song is about the thoughts, feelings and demon’s that Mark went through, and is still going through, after the death of his Mother while Mark was living in Israel back in the early 90’s. Normally a call from home is very welcomed, but there’s nothing worse than getting a call from your Dad, a man who you never though would shed a tear, listening to him cry over the phone while he tells you that your Mother has just past away. This changed Mark’s life forever…..
