Mark Crawford Williams is a singer songwriter currently residing in Rocky Mount, North Carolina. He has been playing in front of live audiences up and down the eastern seaboard for over 20 years now. As a songwriter, he has written and produced projects in several different genres from Rock to Contemporary Christian.
He released a somewhat “ bare bones acoustic” Americana LP titled “Tryin’ Man” in 2011 that eventually got the attention of Nashville producer Gary Sadker (President of Red Ridge Entertainment). Gary was about to launch an independent record label, “Magenta Records”, and was interested in taking Mark’s music to the next level. After hours on the phone and a “summit” in music city, they decided to produce a full length project that would be Mark’s Nashville recording debut.
“Sing A Song”, consisting of nine tracks, is fully Americana with a blend of acoustic folk, blues, and country sounds. After years of honing his craft as a performer and a songwriter, Mark has found his voice in this music.
During the last year Mark has opened for such national acts as Robert Earl Keen, Leon Russell, Robin Trower and Drivin’ N Cryin’. In September 2014 he played an “Americana Music Association” sponsored event at the Blue Bar in Nashville, Tennessee during the Americana Music Festival. That same week he also played The first annual “Moonshine Music Festival” in Woodbury, Tennessee. His music has been well received and he is excited about future tours. [+]
