Whether it be performing alongside a multi-platinum selling artist in sold-out stadiums or composing music for a national TV show, Mark always takes it to the next level!
Before he was the well-known and highly regarded music professional he is today, Mark’s journey into the music world began in Amarillo, TX with an old, rarely tuned, antique piano. At a very young age of only three years old, Mark was crawling up on the piano bench making up melodies and creating simple musical pieces. At that time, nobody realized that his talent on the piano would later develop into a prestigious career in the music industry.
At the ripe age of sixteen Mark decided to play with various regional bands and develop his skills and learn the ropes of the music industry. After five years, Mark knew it was time to give Nashville, Tennessee a shot. Finding work was no trouble for Mark in the big city. He quickly began performing with some of country music’s biggest artists right away with his first big break was with chart-topping country artist, Joe Nichols, who heard him in a local Nashville bar and hired him right on the spot to go promote his first #1 single, Brokenheartsville.
After such a strong entrance into the Nashville music scene, Mark Burch went on to tour with more multi-platinum Grammy-winning artists such as Mark Chesnutt, Billy Currington, Tanya Tucker, John Michael Montgomery and many other big names in country music. Having performed and recorded with so many well-known artists, Mark began to see the “behind the scenes” of how the music industry worked, the methods of how to get a song on the charts, and what elements made a song a hit.
With his curiosity piqued, Mark started to build up his own home studio and before long, his friends were knocking on his door asking him to put that industry knowledge to use and make recordings for them. It didn’t take long for Mark to be in the studio every single day producing demos for songwriters and albums for newer artists.
To this day, Mark always manages to get the best performance out of an artist to create a commercial, marketable sound based on his years of experience working his way up the music industry ladder. Though much of his experience lies in the country music scene, country isn’t the only music Mark engages with just because he is based in Nashville. In addition to country, he has studied all genres, all the way from rock and pop to culturally diverse world music.
This breadth of musical knowledge and expertise makes Mark unstoppable as a composer! He is equipped to create the perfect music for any scenario and draws from all of his unique experiences to create something that will stand out from the crowd and be remembered for being truly great.
According to Mark Burch himself, “I absolutely love to compose music! It’s the one thing that draws from all of my experiences over the years simultaneously: recording, producing, performing, and oftentimes even engineering comes into play. Nothing else can challenge me quite like that.”
With so many incredible accomplishments already behind Mark Burch, you can’t help but get the sense that his tremendous dedication to contributing the highest quality music to such a thriving music community will bring even more to come. Up next for Mark is creating a name for himself as the talented producer around Nashville that he is and plans to become just as widely known and recognized for his incredibly talented composition work throughout the country as well!
