Down the Mountain
Roots singer/songwriter Mark Lennon blindsides Los Angeles with his third album Down the Mountain. Sun drenched city streets set the stage for songs of lost love, reflection, family, and longing for the South. "I grew up on hippie music and bluegrass, so I like when music has great lyrics but also jams out," says Lennon, who still considers North Carolina his home. "I am proud of our musical upbringing. We lived in a little spec-on-a-map town, but always had some amazing bands passing through." A Los Angeles transplant, Lennon has penned his way around Southern California for the past seven years, creating a style entirely his own. He combines personal lyrics and anthemic themes with his love for folk, bluegrass, classic country, and rock and roll. Having formed over the past few years, the Mark Lennon band brings together a diverse collection of musicians from a variety of backgrounds, creating an authentic sound called Down the Mountain.
