The Wagner Family Go Fund Me is here
I’ve decided to extend my tour by a couple of days…the last show will be in our living room as an online benefit concert for my friend Sam’s family. They’re going through a really rough time right now; Sam’s dad (William / Willie) had a brain surgery in July to remove a tumor - the surgery was successful, but in the days following, he suffered a stroke on the right side of his brain. He has been mostly unresponsive since, and their insurance company is refusing to pay for rehabilitation or for the hospice room and board, which is adding up at an alarming rate.
The benefit concert will be live on my homepage this Wednesday, Sep 29th at 7PM EDT, or you can watch it directly on YouTube here
Sam is one of my best friends in the world. We met in college, we were room mates, he used to go on tours with my old band and we’ve caused all kinds of trouble together. Not only that, but I’m very close with his family. I stayed with them many times passing through Ohio when I was getting my career off the ground. They are such a loving crew, and I can't think of a more close-knit family. The Wagners are some of the best people I know, and I’d ask for you to give to this cause as if I were asking for my own family.
Thank you all, love you all, and see you on Wednesday,
Mark is Back!
Hi Folks, I had to step away a bit during 2020 and the earlier part of this year to get my health and priorities straightened out.
I'm still moving slowly, but very happy to be back to writing, recording and performing again. If you'd like to keep up with the process, the travels and the feelings, check out the new Blog section of the site.
As I write this, I'm currently on a short tour with a few shows in Virginia and North Carolina. Coming back and doing what I used to do after so much time away, so much change and growth within myself...this is truly surreal and I am thankful for every moment of it.
Much love to all of you,
Sept 17th, 2021
