Mark Wilkinson’s lyrical depth, gift for melody, and impassioned delivery are quickly establishing him as one of Australia’s most highly regarded singer/songwriters.
Mark's second studio album, Let The River Run, was released on August 9, 2013 and hit #2 on the Australian iTunes singer-songwriter charts within 24 hrs of the release - surpassing Ed Sheeran, The Lumineers, and Jake Bugg. The album also debuted at #2 on the Independent Music Charts (AIR), and at #61 on ARIA charts. Let The River Run was produced by Ollie McGill of The Cat Empire and mastered at legendary Abbey Road Studios. It is distributed by MGM Distribution in AUS/NZ, with worldwide digital distribution.
With buzz around his live performances continuing to grow, Mark regularly sells out shows across Australia and in Europe – all without formal marketing or promotional support. A truly accomplished independent artist, Mark has gone on to sell some 40,000 records at live shows alone. In addition to his headline tours, Wilkinson has opened for legendary artists like Brian Wilson and Peter Frampton, among others, and performed for VIPs at Kings of Leon and Santana concerts.
Wilkinson is currently on tour across Australia and New Zealand through September, with the majority of dates selling out well in advance. Mark will make his North American tour debut in October 2013, with shows scheduled in New York, Boston, Los Angeles, Boulder, Atlanta and Nashville among others.
