Mark Gamon is an (approximately) Cambridge-based musician and writer, with a growing reputation as a songwriter who combines intriguing stories with memorable melodies. An adept fingerstyle guitarist, he works in a combination of styles – folk, blues and country – and doesn’t really give a hoot for where the traditions overlap. He can also occasionally be heard wielding a mandolin.
Mark works solo and with various musical compadres including Lizzie J Taylor, David Hardie, Matti Stenroos, John Meed, Ben Smith and the band Sky West. His 2012 solo album, Layer, was described by Music Maker magazine as ‘a varied and inventive story-telling concept that manages to succeed while flying in the face of stylistic convention’ (more reviews HERE).
