Mark Morriss is best known as the frontman for The Bluetones who had 13 UK top 40 singles in the days when you had to sell plenty of records to have a UK hit. The Bluetones recently reformed and are touring the UK in September but in the meantime Mark is about to release his second studio solo album entitled “The Taste of Mark Morriss”, this record is a 12-track intimate insight into the creative-mind of one of the UK’s finest song-writers. Mark has selected his favourite “blast from the past” songs that helped to form his musical tastes and shape his songwriting skills, picking the tunes apart and re-invented them with his own flair.
The album will be released on the Acid Jazz label 31/07/2015
