Hey kids, Just "finished" this one a matter of hours ago. Not that anything I do is EVER "finished" but for now. THIS is done. or maybe I'M done. LOL... I think I started recording this last Thursday... and it's now …
Some reviews & testimonials
“Dear Mark, THANK YOU for sending *Spark & Flame*!!!! This CD certainly is a compilation of Conscious Love Songs! As I listen I am transported to memory after memory past, present and future, fulfilled and unfulfilled. I was flooded with many different emotions. I cried, laughed, held my breath and also breathed deep heart-centered breaths of connection to the Divine. I feel joy, grief, sadness, compassion, love, awe, freedom, kindness, gratitude and appreciation. For me these songs are transformational lessons in self-love, releasing, acceptance for what was, what is and who I am. Knowing that I am enough and that I am Divinely Loved.”
“Hi Mark, I just had to tell you this. I emailed my 3 granddaughters the song you wrote who are sisters with the youngest being 11 years old, has cerebral palsy and is very smart, is able to talk, very funny, uses a computer, is able to write, now is learning to play drums, emails me ‘Thanks. I do.’ I loved the song and listened to it 3 times.”
“Your music is taking over my life and it’s awesome!”
“Your incredible music never fails to move me. Thank you, Mark.”
“I sh*t you not when I say I’ve been singing the chorus to Honest Rock since the first day I heard it. I sing this every single day. Many times a day. Seriously. It’s like a mantra to me. It soothes me:-)”
“Hello Mark. I am enjoying your songs so much! I’d love to see you play live somewhere.”
“Brilliant! I LOVE seeing the words to all these beloved songs, thanks!”
“‘Let’s Run’ is MY FAVORITE so far.. I LOVE THIS ONE.. great job.. total awesomeness!!! I thank Jana Stanfield for introducing me to your gifts. I am grateful.”
“Mark, this song and message really hit home for me today. You have put a grown man in tears. Thank You for what you do. Sometimes I think you sound kind of cheesy, and then others, I think you are a genius, and I’m beginning to realize that you actually care about helping people. So hard to “get out of your own way” sometimes…thanks for the reminder.”
“Mark, your song ‘Freedom (It’s Been Long Road)’ was just perfect to start my day. I LOVE IT! Thank you, Thank you. Blessings to you and much gratitude for your musical gift.”

Love the “Key To Your Cage” album. I hear so many different influences and styles woven throughout the songs, really keeps it interesting from start to finish!
