Self-released in February 2007, …and it will rise with the sun was my first full-length release. It was recorded during a four month residency at the Contemporary Music Center on the island of Martha’s Vineyard. The album has nine tracks of uplifting, yet introspective ambient electronica. …and it will rise with the sun was featured on the nationally syndicated Echoes Radio Program and on podcasts around the world. The album is available by digital download, as physical copies are sold out.

Mark Preston Biography:
Residing on Boston’s North Shore, twenty-five year old composer Mark Preston creates a refreshing brand of uplifting mid-tempo grooves and melodic soundscapes. As a self-taught musician, he works viscerally--driven only by an ear that enjoys Stravinsky as much as the Fugees, and Sigur Ros as much as Tom Petty.

A drummer in rock and jam bands throughout high school and college, Mark put down his sticks when he met a Boston-based Zouk and Compas producer who used software programs to create beats. After sitting in on hours of the producer's studio sessions, Mark found he could use similar tools to create the kinds of sounds he loved.

With a laptop, Propellerhead Reason software, and a small keyboard, Mark composed in his bedroom studio. Shortly thereafter, Mark was awarded a four-month residency at the Contemporary Music Center on the island of Martha’s Vineyard. Mark originally attended the Center to focus on drumming; however, he decided to use the opportunity to develop his new interests in writing and producing instrumental music. The product of Mark's work was his first album, "…and it will rise with the sun."

Featured on the nationally syndicated Echoes Radio Program and podcasts around the world, "…and it will rise with the sun" was self-released in February of 2007. Since then, Mark has licensed his music to national and international clients including MTV, Nickelodeon, and Sony Computer Entertainment.

Mark’s latest album, "Nature & Design," was self-released in September of 2010.

Outside the studio, Mark can be found enjoying the great outdoors, running, and researching auditory perception and processing at the University of Massachusetts.

short but sweet
I need to get this off my chest: there are less than 35 minutes of music on this CD. What is there is very good to excellent. Fans of Ulrich Schnauss will be pleased. There is a good mix of songs, and the CD just gets stronger as it progresses. Up-island and Paint Vibrant Colors are wonderful. If it were longer, I'm sure I'd have gone to 5 stars, the music is that good.

good title good music
Yes there are some many good D I Y artists that sometimes its hard to choose but this is a beautiful cd.My best wishes.

I really liked this album, in particular Up-Island, and the title track...andit will rise with the sun. The album title is fitting for exactly what it claims-a sunrise and some headphones. The music feels epic, and like each track should be in a movie, but in each movie, the song would be in the best part of the movie. I hope that makes sense.
