Mark Norris and the Backpeddlers

For over a decade, Norris fronted the powerpop outfit girlpope-hailed as one of Buffalo, New York's best live acts for its breakneck, sweat-soaked performances.

Forming the Backpeddlers in 2005, Norris was looking for a new approach. After a few key shows opening for the likes of Elvis Costello, Steve Wynn, and The Pernice Brothers, the band released its debut CD, Stranded Between Stations, in 2007.

Filled with stark, quiet ruminations, the disc was a step away from girlpope's bombastic, uptempo songs.

The disc was described by the Buffalo News as “The Basement Tapes recorded with Ray Davies instead of Bob Dylan.”
