Join us for free live music by Mark Burke!

 
The strum of six strings, strength of a voice, and story of a song…these are what drew Mark Burke to country music and what sets him apart from others in the industry.

Born and raised in Stuart, Florida, Mark took to music at a very young age. “I remember riding with my Dad to my Grand-Daddy’s house. He had an old Ford, but the ‘F’ was missing off the back so we called it an ‘ord.’ He played all kinds of music and that’s where I realized the power of a song and that I wanted to write.” To Mark, songwriting isn’t a job – it’s an experience and a way of life. Songwriting is a way to release what you’re feeling, to tell a story, and to connect with people beyond physical and emotional contact. “Performances are great, but the foundation of a performance is the song…it all starts there.”

Instrumentation also came naturally to Mark as he began playing the piano at age seven. During high school he joined the band and learned to play the trumpet. It wasn’t, however, until his senior year when Mark picked up his Dad’s old Yamaha six-string and began plucking away. “Since then, he hasn’t put the thing down,” says Mark’s Dad.

With influences such as Waylon Jennings, Vern Gosdin, Merle Haggard, and Craig Campbell, it’s no wonder why stylistically, Mark’s songs are a cross between George Jones and young Eric Church. His songs have an honesty – a realness – about them. They’re written from the heart, they’re meant to be heard, and they impact listeners. The passion he has for songs and songwriting comes through in his performances and leaves a lasting impression on listeners.

Today, Mark can be found playing solo acoustic gigs and songwriter rounds in Nashville and the surrounding areas. He’s also had the opportunity to share the stage with acts such as Scotty Emerick, Craig Morgan, James Otto, Chris Cagle, Craig Campbell, Luke Bryan, Josh Gracin, Darryl Worley, Josh Thompson, Jake Owen, and most recently, Chris Young. Mark hopes to continue to share his music with music lovers everywhere.
