Mark drew upon a  wealth of influences from Funk to Jazz to Gospel and cites his inspiration for his musical style and pathway to musical greats such as Grover Washington Jr., Earth Wind & Fire, Sonny Stitt and Kool And The Gang

By the time he graduated from high school he had already received numerous awards for his musical excellence which included a scholarship to the Texas Southern University in Houston, TX.

This extraordinarily gifted artist has had the honour of sharing the stage with some of the most revered artists and musicians in the world of Smooth Jazz and R&B including: Al Jarreau, Patti Labelle, Gerald Albright, Bobby Womack, Billy Preston, Janelle Monae and many others.

Mark Allen Felton is also prolific composer and has written several hundred songs including the theme song for the nationally syndicated radio show 'Radioscope', and the theme song for comedian Michael Colyar’s comedy special.

" My inspiration comes from the feeling that I get when I hear good music. When good music is being played it inspires me to want to create, it makes me want to play, it makes me want to share my gift of music with others and inspire them to share their own talents to the world - whatever they may be."

Featured Artist - Mark Allen Felton

Mark's compositions may also be heard in independent films as well as on his four previously released CDs entitled 'On The Prowl', 'Gospel Stroll', 'A Blessing' and 'I Do It For Love'. His 5th CD 'Soul Real' will soon be released in 2022.

In a world whereby people are quick to pigeonhole music Mark's categorizes his simply as :- Great Music. " I strive to deliver my best performance every time that I play, that is what is important to me i.e. Doing my best. "

The most important piece of advice I would impart to any young musician is to " stay true to yourself. " Don’t be afraid to develop your own style, that doesn’t mean that you won’t have influences, you most certainly will. However it simply means that in your pursuit of becoming a musician, allow your own voice to be heard.

Mark's single ' Give Me Your Love ' is featured on STREETJAZZ Show No. 968 :-
