ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
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.

Down the Mountain reviews
“This is fresh. This is simplicity at it’s finest.”
-Twister Valley Records

"...lovely sounding roots rock album with hints of Ryan Adams (especially vocally), the Grateful Dead and the Black Crowes. These songs are still on rotation after three weeks - a good sign - they're memorable, catchy and shouting out for recognition."
-Americana UK

"He’s not flashy, but then again he doesn’t have to be. Just listen to his music and you’ll realize he’s a savvy musician speaking simple, honest truths."
-Country Music Pride

"Mark is no slouch himself when it comes to vocals - there's a palpable yearning in his voice as he sings "My Hometown" another highlight from the album."
-Beat Surrender

"His music brings to mind the folk and country-rock sounds of early ‘70s Golden State transplants like Brewer & Shipley and Grateful Dead."
-Hyperbolium

“a perfect mixture of heartfelt lyrics, easing yet engaging melodies and, similar to each Mark Lennon song, it tells a story and takes the listener on their own musical journey of keeping roots while chasing dreams.”
-Performer Magazine

Terrific Americana/Country Rock
Mark Lennon’s third CD, “Down the Mountain,” finds the terrific LA-based singer-songwriter continuing his musical journey down that Americana trail blazed by the likes of legends such as Ryan Adams, Gene Clark, and Gram Parsons. And like those notable forerunners, Lennon’s ease and naturalness with the country-tinged rock style is as pure as it is noteworthy. With vocal inflections that sound clear-as-mountain-stream authentic, Lennon’s songs of love’s travails and the struggle to find meaning in mixed-up times, really strike home on tunes such as “What I Could Be With You,” “Broken,” and the wonderful “My Hometown,” a track that recalls American Beauty-era Grateful Dead. As accessible and tuneful as all the songs are, though, Lennon’s duet with Simone Stevens on “Wildside” has a fragile beauty that goes beyond questions of style or genre, invoking instead the notion that great music knows no such boundaries. With a multi-textured Americana / Country Rock ensemble providing the perfect backdrop for “Down the Mountain,” Mark Lennon’s latest CD is a triumph of style and delivery.
