Singer/songwriter Mark Henes is a living, breathing embodiment of the spirit of American music. Well versed in everything from the classic honky-tonk of Hank Williams to the electric boogie of Chuck Berry, he reimagines Americana for the 21st century, with high energy songs that range from thoughtful introspection to all out rock.
Born and raised in Nashville, TN, Henes’ career as a musician seemed almost predetermined. Growing up in the recording capitol of America, he was constantly surrounded by music. The high lonesome sound of vintage country, the sensitivity of the seventies singer/songwriters, the ferocity of the electric blues, he absorbed them all before he was even a young man. By the time he began performing around town, it was like he’d been doing it all his life. When he finally started writing songs of his own, he blended all of his influences into one sound that only he could make.
In 2018 he officially arrived on the scene with his debut EP ‘Transitions.’ The EP’s raw bluesy rock feel was well received locally, with one critic praising its “hefty funk and luscious California harmonies.” Feeling newly inspired, Henes followed it up with two more singles; 2019’s ‘Strip Me Down’ which embraces the spirit of pop punk, and the banjo laden ‘Ghost Train,’ which harkens back to the golden age of country with its folksy melody/dark imagery.
Now Mark is ready for a national audience with the release of his official full length debut entitled ‘Crystallized Reflections’.
