Mark Morriss on Saturday 17th June 2023
Saturday June 17th
Mark Morriss is a singer songwriter who made his name fronting The Bluetones. Mark fronted the four piece over a successful and fruitful 15 year period, scoring 14 top ten singles and 3 top ten albums, whilst touring the UK, Europe and Japan, before temporarily disbanding in 2011.
After releasing his debut solo album ‘Memory Muscle’ in 2008, Mark banded together The Mummys and hit the road. He spent the best part of that year touring ‘Memory Muscle’ while The Bluetones took a short sabbatical, often with his bandmates in tow, either sharing touring duties or joining him in the studio for the odd overdub.
After returning to The Bluetones to record ‘A New Athens’, Mark re-focused his attention on his solo career. In 2013 he recorded ‘A Flash of Darkness’, given a general release by Acid Jazz Records the following year, whilst Mark continued to tour both as a solo acoustic artist and with an ever changing line up behind him.
In the summer of 2015 Mark recorded and released ‘The Taste of Mark Morriss’, again for Acid Jazz. Intended as a companion piece to ‘A Flash of Darkness’, the album comprised a collection of cover versions of songs that had informed the writing of its predecessor.
Since 2013 Mark has also been a member of Acid Jazz label-mate Matt Berry’s touring band The Maypoles. When in 2015 The Bluetones announced that they would be returning to play a series of anniversary shows it started to look like there was never going to be time to start work on solo record #4, but time was found. Titled ‘Look Up’, initially in 2017 before a broader all-formats release in 2019.
