Mark Knight is the real deal, with over 1 million albums sold worldwide. Once you hear his music, it's clear that he is not only an extremely gifted guitarist but an insightful and prolific songwriter as well. Born in North Hollywood, CA to a Las Vegas showgirl, Mark was orphaned at a year old when his mother tragically died of breast cancer. Raised by his nanny for the next year, as his biological father was never in the picture, Mark's story takes a happy turn when the Knight family adopted him. He suddenly had three sisters and became part of a loving family living in Los Angeles' San Fernando Valley. Mark's father sold professional audio mastering equipment to record companies and his mother was a homemaker. The exposure to the recording industry through his father's work ensured that music spoke to Mark early on, as the remedy for all ills. In the indescribable way that a true music lover connects with music and all of it's intangibles, Mark would connect with certain songs that would prove to have great emotional impact on him and influence the direction of his life in ways that he could not yet comprehend. He borrowed a beat up classical guitar (which he still has!) and took a beginner's guitar class in the 7th grade. That was it...he was hooked. His love of guitar became all consuming, as he practiced nonstop, sometimes to the detriment of his schoolwork. Mark's very first band was named for his father, Mickey Knight. By 16, he was already playing the Hollywood club circuit with his band, including gigs at the Troubadour. Friction within the band caused them to replace Mark as the lead guitarist, fueling a strong, rebellious adolescent desire for revenge and Mark soon formed a new band with bass player Kyle Kyle called Bang Tango. The rest of the band was comprised of guitarist Kyle Stevens, singer Joe Lesté, and drummer Tigg Ketler. With Mark as the major songwriting force behind the band, Bang Tango landed a record deal with MCA Mechanics in 1989. Their debut album, Psycho Café, hit the Billboard charts and yielded the hit, "Someone Like You," which was given considerable exposure on MTV as well. The original lineup sold over a million records but spilt up after recording five albums together. Despite the breakup of the band, Mark never stopped composing and playing his music. Though not an easy transition, the next step was to get in front of the microphone to sing his own songs. Mark formed Worry Beads and recorded an album produced by the well-known vocalist and producer, Bernard Fowler, doing double duty as lead singer and guitar. Bernard coached Mark on his technique and helped build his confidence as a singer. Mark's latest album, Bone Rail Tight, is his first full-length solo effort with roots dating back several years. In 2006, Mark released a 5-track solo EP, Perfect American Family, featuring Matt Abts of Gov't Mule on drums and Tony Marsico, a session player for Neil Young, Roger Daltrey and Matthew Sweet, on bass. Mark's fans loved the EP, but everyone had the same reaction: "It's too short!" With the help of Perfect American Family producer, Tom Lavin, Mark dove headlong into writing songs for a new album, all the while recording a second Worry Beads record. Fitting in sessions whenever Matt, Tony and many of Mark's other talented friends were available, Bone Rail Tight was recorded as a labor of love in an intimate private studio with impressive results. Mark's loyal fans immediately connected with the new direction he was moving in and unequivocally embraced Bone Rail Tight on iTunes as well as turning out in support at shows both in Los Angeles and on tour in the Southeast soon after the release. While others are content to trade on past glories, Mark has pushed himself to hone and perfect his craft. While he enjoys getting together to play familiar songs with old friends, his focus is clearly on making new music and collaborating with the finest musicians available. This latest collection shows Mark at his best: vocals upfront and personal, guitars holding pride of place in the mix. It's the album he has always wanted to make and showcases his unique and signature style and soul.
