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 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.

Spark Jack Daddy is a 14-piece band that plays high energy rock and pop songs. The band consists of 2 guitars, 4 horns, 4 harmony singers, a drummer, bassist, percussionist, and keyboardist. The core of this band is made up of members of Nineball and they kicked off this project with a show in New Orleans. After a string of corporate events playing audience favorites they recently wrote new songs that featured the expansive orchestration. In 2018 they debut their original music at the McDowell Mountain Music Festival which also featured (Dr. Dog, Too Many Zooz, Cut Copy, Big Gigantic, and the Seratones).

I play keyboards and occasionally break out the harmonica or mandolin. The band is playing "My Own Little World", a song that I co-wrote with Nashville songwriter Chris St.Croix. Upcoming show is at the Culinary Arts Festival in Scottsdale.

When I lived in Nashville, I joined a Styx tribute band called Equinox. We only played two shows, but one of them was a Styx Jam that brought Styx fans from all over the country to Nashville to hear us play. Here is a link to a video file of me singing and playing guitar on Suite Madame Blue. For more pictures and clips from this event, click here .

Seven Nation Army
by the White Stripes

Drums are not my forte. I am much more comfortable behind a guitar or keyboards, but for the Intel Talent show at the Chandler Center for the Arts I played drums for a band called Double Negative. The band was made up of my long time friend Ed Clapper (Anti-M) on guitar, his daughter Aris on Vocals, and my son Sage on bass. We did a cover of Seven Nation Army by the White Stripes. Here is is from Youtube.
