Hailing from Barrow in Furness, Cumbria Mark Docherty has been writing music since the age of 11. Influenced by David Bowie Jack White and Prince he brings together these eclectic influences to create a unique sound all his own.
Since studying songwriting at Brighton Institute of Modern Music, Mark has led London based bands such as ‘party-rock pioneers’ Team New Band (like Talking Heads & Pixies taking steroids together), to the dark Dead Weather inspired Hari Debi.
Achievements from this include BBC Introducing support as well as headlining Archie’s Stage at YNOT festival.
After a relocation to Liverpool Mark is releasing his debut solo album Reckless Abandon due out mid-2023. Playing all the instruments, producing and mastering the 12 songs has been a labour of love and an interesting challenge. The triumphant first single Saying Goodbye has been described as ‘Sensational in all aspects’ - ANR factory
Second single Pay My Debt Is due out March 20th, and you can see more at Mark's own website too.
