Acoustic Achord are delighted to announce that Mark Morriss, the former lead singer of The Bluetones, is making a welcome return to The Junction in Oldham.
Mark Morriss is a singer songwriter who famously made his
name fronting English indie outfit The Bluetones. Mark
fronted the four piece over a successful and fruitful 15
year period, scoring 14 top ten singles and 3 top ten
albums, whilst touring the UK, Europe and Japan. At the
back end of 2011 the decision was made to disband The
Bluetones, resulting in a shock farewell tour. Hordes of
loyal Bluetones fans turned out in their thousands to give
the band they called their own, a fond and sad farewell.
A case of unfinished business, Mark Morriss has now
turned his attentions to his solo career. After releasing
'Memory Muscle ' in 2008, Mark has since penned material
for a new record. Due for an Autumn release, early demos
recorded with long standing Producer, Gordon Mills (Ed
Sheeran/Newton Faulkner) have sparked great excitement
from fans and industry a-like. Fans have been treated to a
two track giveaway in 'Low Company' & 'Guilty Again'
through his official website www.markmorriss.me
Touring extensively throughout the remainder of 2012 and
gearing towards the much anticipated album release, you
can catch Mark Morriss live as he continues to tour up and
down the UK.
