SINGER/SONGWRITER MARK GREENAWALT
Mark Greenawalt started playing music seriously when he assembled a band and produced a two hour rock concert in high school. After that he started playing nightclubs in the Mid-Atlantic region with the bands NiteKap and Center Alley while attending Penn State University. He began writing and recording his original songs in the basement on a Tascam 4-Track recorder and then moved to Arizona after graduating with Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering. He formed the Phoenix-based band, ANTI-M, with friend and collaborator Ed Clapper and they recorded two independent albums entitled "Beyond the Emerald City" and "Exhibit 'A'". Their song "Until The Fire's Gone" was placed in the feature film OPEN ARMS and it received rotation on local radio. Next Greenawalt joined Gemini Records recording artist RAY WHEELER AND THE EDGE and did a national tour of college campuses. While in this band he co-wrote the song "Over The Edge" with guitarist Scott Brown which was recorded on their second CD.
In 1995 he moved to Nashville, Tennessee to persue songwriting and had the opportunity to perform at venues such as the Bluebird Cafe, Tootsies Orchid Lounge, The Broken Spoke, and even the Nashville Arena. His collaborators included Dawna Bradford (writer for Trick Pony), Kristy Deck, Chris St.Croix, Molly Reid, Ashley Hayes, and Amy Hailstone. Greenawalt and Dawna Bradford recorded "The Letter" at the world famous Studio B and then recorded "Simple Life" in his home Session 8 recording studio which climbed to #1 on the mp3.com country chart. He did a couple of events with the Styx tribute band EQUINOX also before moving back to Phoenix. He is currently playing, writing, and recording songs with the band SPARK JACK DADDY.
