Mark's Story

New York based singer-songwriter Mark Shock brings an Alt-Country style to his music.  A performer since the age of twelve, Mark moved from Michigan to New York City in 2004 to pursue an acting/singing career.  While performing in the 2009 off-Broadway play Our Town, he taught himself to play guitar while backstage, and soon after began writing and recording original music.  Mark’s country rock infused melodies, rooted in acoustic guitar, are reminiscent of classic, early Eagles recordings, with vocals akin to Kenny Chesney and lyrics based in vibrant storytelling. His influences range from Bob Seger, John Denver and Paul Simon to Tim McGraw, Otis Redding and Elvis Presley. Mark's debut album, Far From the End, was released in October 2014 and was followed up by three singles in 2015 and one in 2016.  Mark's latest single, Moonlight, was released on August 22nd 2017.  Several of Mark’s original songs have been heard on High Plains Public Radio out of Amarillo, TX, and he has been featured on both The Bill Russo Show and Cees World of Music on the City World Radio Network.  Mark is continually writing and recording new music, and can currently be seen performing throughout New York City.
