Steven Wright-Mark

Hailing from NYC, Steven Wright-Mark released his debut solo disc "Pop Motel" in 2007, on Not Lame Records. The album's first single "Pawn Shop Crystal Ball" garnered both airplay and critical acclaim.

Following that initial release, Steven became involved with Burning Sky Records, for which he contributed tracks to their highly-respected line of tribute albums, including "I Don't Believe You" for "Sensory Lullabies: The Ultimate Tribute To Jellyfish," and "Burn and Shine" for "Beautiful Escape: The Songs of The Posies Revisted." The latter was produced by legendary producer and musician Don Fleming, who produced The Posies' "Frosting On The Beater" CD on which "Burn and Shine" first appeared. DIY pioneer R. Stevie Moore contributed piano to the track as well.

In November 2008, Steven released his follow-up disc "Sideshow Freak," again to good reviews and fan reaction, with the track "Change" getting radio airplay. In 2009, he contributed a cover of Roxy Music's "Trash" (from their "Manifesto" disc) to another Burning Sky Records project - "Take Refuge In Pleasure: The Songs of Roxy Music Revisited."

In 2010, Steven appeared on two more Burning Sky releases, contributing "It's So Dirty" and "Sheep" to tributes for Squeeze and Toy Love, respectively.

Steven recently surfaced after a few months in the studio, having completed his third solo album -- "My Plastic World" - which is out now (on Amplifrier Music), and is getting great reviews and airplay. Shows to follow.. [+]
