Album Notes
Mark Doyle has had an interesting and varied career in the music business. Raised by musical parents, he studied extensively in classical and jazz piano, appearing on local TV and radio shows by age ten. Mark seemed destined for a career in jazz piano until The Beatles appeared on Ed Sullivan, whereby he switched to guitar. His first band, Jukin' Bone, was signed to RCA when Mark was still in his late 'teens. They went on to make two obscure albums hailed by Creem Magazine as seminal classics of early '70's hard rock.

After the breakup of that band in 1973, Mark found his niche as lead guitarist/arranger/right-hand man for a series of brilliant and eccentric singer/songwriters. Highlights of this period include two albums each with Andy Pratt ("Resolution" and "Shiver In The Night") and Cindy Bullens ("Desire Wire"and "Steal The Night"), and three albums with David Werner ("Whizz Kid," "Imagination Quota," and "David Werner"), along with a number of tours as lead guitarist and bandleader for these artists. Concurrent with this activity were numerous session dates as a guitarist for Daryl Hall & John Oates, Judy Collins, Leo Sayer, and many others.

The '80's saw Mark embark on many world tours and TV appearances as lead guitarist for Meat Loaf; another high point was arranging and singing the background vocals on "Straight From The Heart" by Bryan Adams. An avid interest in record production saw Mark perfecting his craft on many independent label productions, as well as major label productions for Epic and Casablanca.

A move to Boston in 1988 yielded a new career as a string arranger. After being introduced to producer Maurice Starr, Mark arranged strings for virtually all of Starr's acts, including New Kids On The Block, Rick Wes, Perfect Gentlemen, Tiffany, The Superiors, Seiko, and The Stylistics, also contributing co-production and instrumental prowess to many of these records.

A call from producer Michael Beinhorn led to Mark contributing string arrangements to The Cavedogs' major label debut on Capitol, "Soul Martini."

Next, Mark traveled to Tokyo to play keyboards and acoustic guitar for the Epic/Sony and Pioneer labels.

Mark left Boston in 1994, and now divides his time between his residence in Central New York and his apartment in New York City. He continues to actively produce and perform on a regular basis, and in 1999 he released his first solo album, the critically acclaimed "Guitar Noir." He has just completed a brand new album of guitar instrumentals called "Out of the Past."

Mark Younger-Smith

Here's a guy with melodies ringing in his head
As a guitarist myself I like the use of tones mixed with modern elements. This is good stuff to drive with!

CD Baby

Among the reams and reams of instrumental guitar rock records, it takes a little extra spunk and pizzazz to pass by the ears of the masses and catch a glance. This is one such album that, taking us back to a time of fuzz guitars, theremins and psychedelic tendencies, captures the Jeff Beck lover in all of us.

Spike Penetrator

Great rocking instrumentals.
Mark hits all the right notes on this CD for those of us with a fondness for the '60's rock n roll. There are some jazzy touches, some incredible guitar playing, and a whole lot of memory bell jangling to boot. Heck, the cover is worth the cost of admission alone. He's played with the majors, and he's incredible on his own too. Keep rocking, Mark.
