Tide That Binds
Born near a river. Played in a swamp. Sailed on the ocean. Chill at the beach. Ride in the wind. Howl at the moon. That\'s Mark\'s life story in a nutshell. And his outlook on life. It\'s all about living and feeling alive. That starts with being connected to where you are. Mark Smith\'s music has a way of doing that for you. Though Mark\'s music has swept across Florida like summer rain for two decades, though it\'s largely inspired by Florida, his birthplace, it\'s really about knowing what you love, what moves you, what you reach for when the walls close in or what you see in your head when you nap with the windows open. Public and commercial radio stations around the Southeast have given Mark\'s earthy voice and bonfire insights airplay since his Hurricane Andrew benefit endeavor \'The Wild Winds Come\' raised money for disaster relief in the wake of that 1992 storm, which shares his middle name. Folk Festivals and listening rooms have found audiences gathering to listen to his land and water-inspired imagery and stories ever since. A lover of all musical styles, Mark borrows from them without ever moving too far from the riverbanks. Come listen. His riverbanks may just be your path to the place you call home.
