Mark Morriss (The Bluetones)

Mark James Morriss (born 18 October 1971 in Hounslow, Middlesex) is an English singer-songwriter, formerly the lead singer for The Bluetones who split up in September 2011 following a farewell tour. He is the older brother of former bandmate and bass player/illustrator Scott Morriss and is currently pursuing a solo career. His debut solo album, Memory Muscle, was released in May 2008. A gentler, folk-tinged record, it includes five re-recorded tracks which had previously been released under the name â[][]Fi-Lo Beddowâ[] as an EP in February 2006. The strings on the record were arranged by David Arnold, who became a fan of Expecting to Fly whilst scoring Independence Day. In May 2011, Morriss played at the LeeStock Music Festival in Sudbury, Suffolk as the headline act on the closing Sunday.
