Mark Hole is a London based singer songwriter. Probably one of the most prolific writing talents that the UK has ever spawned, whose nonconformist rebellion positions him as one of the most exciting maverick performers of all time. Hollywood legend, Kevin Spacey supports this, after buying 'F-Sharp' he said:
"Listen to his songs and go to his gigs, you'll find him to be a pretty open kind of fellow, yes a little eccentric, but his uniqueness informs a musical style with a real independence of character which you won't find anywhere else"
After releasing his very original debut album "F-Sharp" and single "Dirty Base" he supported Tori Amos on her European Tour, playing as far as Russia, then back again to finish off at the "Royal Albert Hall", Mark as always went down a storm. He then released his 2nd album "Always Follow Your Heart" with the title track video and of course the heartbreaking single that is "Torture Garden".
Even Academy Award, Golden Globe Award, Tony Award and Grammy Award-winning lyricist "Tim Rice" said, "Mark Hole is very quirky with echoes of the great Ray Davies. His voice sounds great, musically top-hole!"
People are clearly keen to work with Mark, evidenced by him working with award-winning producer, Steve Brown (Rumer, Laura Mvula) cutting his teeth with the likes of Declan Gaffney from the U2 crew, spending time in the studio with Grammy Award Winner Jimmy Hogarth (James Blunt, Amy Winehouse), to then be working with the legend that is Amanda Ghost (James Blunt, Beyonce). Mark has also been working with Swedish production team LIONHEART to explore new sounds, and over the summer of 2013 Mark received a special invite to LA to spend studio time with another impressed Grammy Award Winner - producer, Redone (Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez, Nicki Minaj).
All this new writing with the above Pop legends has brought out a side of Mark's writing not heard or seen before. He has changed. Not knowing how to break the news, he thought he'd help bridge the gap by creating his final Mark Hole album 'People Change' which reflects elements of his earlier works while paving the way for something else, something fresh. It all ended with a final Uni Tour with "Coffee House Sessions" and a final live performance on Clive Anderson's BBC Radio 4 show, 'Loose Ends'.
Mark has not been seen since. But now he returns with a dance and a smile this 2015 with the very different Synth Soul and Pop sounds of "KEYHOLE" which you can hear now @ www.keyholethemusic.com
