Mark made the big move from his home in New Jersey to Nashville in January of 2006 with two goals in mind - landing a publishing deal and a record deal for the Mulch Brothers. In 2010 Savannah Music Group signed Mark as a staff songwriter and as an artist as a member of the Mulch Brothers. Just before signing the deal he scored his first cut in Nashville with Universal's Randy Rogers Band co-writing the song "Steal You Away" (Produced by Grammy Award winning Producer Paul Worley). The song became a single and spent 7 weeks at #1 on the Texas Music Charts as well as enjoying National & International radio airplay . The song also landed a spot in the film "Country Strong" starring Gwenyth Paltrow and Tim McGraw and this time it was co-writer Jeff Middleton’s band The Dirt Drifters who cut the song while on Warner Bros. Records. Several other songs have followed with licensing success including “Lucky You” featured in “12 Men of Christmas” (LifetimeTV), “He’s Lookin Better” in “Junkyard Dog” (feature film) and “You Know Us By Heart” written for a Connecticare Health Care advertising campaign which became their most successful ever and still airs today as their official theme song.
