The first thing you notice when listening to Mark McGowan is the power and timbre of his neo-Soul voice.

A voice that keeps one ear firmly in working class Glasgow, yet transports the other to the Greenwich Village folk scene of the early 60’s. McGowan’s intricate picking style and storytelling developed from an early age and became the tools for him to express himself. 

On the 13th of May 2016 Mark releasedThe ‘Fugazi’ EP and brought a diverse collection of influence to the table, with Barne Society producer Marco Rea (who has worked with BMX Bandits & Emeli Sande), creating a contemporary texture as the backdrop to McGowan’s tales of outlaw’s, regret, revenge and romance. Tracks ‘Lighthouse’ and ‘Fugazi’ display the essence of Mark McGowan’s style with their bittersweet images being painted over circular picking patterns.
