Artist biography

Mark Morriss is a singer-songwriter who famously made his name fronting English indie outfit The Bluetones. Mark fronted the four piece over a successful and fruitful 15 year period, scoring 14 top ten singles and 3 top ten albums, whilst touring the UK, Europe and Japan.

Still touring with the band he has also had a successful solo career beginning with 2008 album Memory Muscle (released through Fulfill Records) and through 2014 album A Flash of Darkness and 2015 companion album of covers A Taste of Mark Morriss (both of which were released through Acid Jazz).

Once again working with producer Gordon Mills, Morriss wrote and recorded his fourth album Look Up in 2016, supported by a Pledge Music campaign. The album – which moves toward a synth-pop sound and away from acoustic songwriting – was shared with supporters of the campaign in 2017 and is due for a full release on vinyl, CD and digitally on 20 September 2019 through Reckless Yes, to which Mark signed in 2018. Vinyl pre-orders are open now.
