October 21, 2015 Mark Edgar Stuart
Mark has toured with Grammy nominee Alvin Youngblood Hart and cut two records with songwriter Cory Branan which led to an appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman. With little fuss or fanfare he became a go-to bass player for an elite group of Memphis players. After spending so much time in the company of strong songwriters, it was only a matter of time before Mark amassed his own collection of humble, humorous and sometimes heartbreaking songs.
