Show #3 Mark Radcliffe

Mark Radcliffe

by Ken on June 22, 2010

If The Eagles and Jack Johnson had a baby…

His music and lyrics would sound a lot like Mark Radcliffe. He grew up in Maine and Vermont, taught high school English for years (yes, waited tables & tended bar) and wrote ad copy. Along the way he’s played and sung his tunes from NYC to Atlanta to LA, and in countless other cities and towns in between. Today, his first, full-studio CD, “The Sea Before Us” is getting lots of spins and drawing glowing reviews from coast to coast.

2Kens Comedy Club Indie caught up with Mark for a fascinating 15 minutes in which we learned he…

  • is obsessed with brunettes
  • can go 5 minutes on how not to be a schmuck at the movies
  • has had enough failed jobs and star-crossed relationships to fill his next album
  • no longer believes 30 (or any age) is the point when you figure out life

Songs played include, “In The Sun”, “Blow It All Away”, “Tumbleweed” and our personal top-down, driving around tune “Miss Hard To Forget.” (for that special brunette in your life!)

NOTE: this show first aired on April 26, 2010.
