Album Notes
When you first listen to Mark Brown, you might find yourself wondering where he’s been and why it took him so long to get here. Combining a sharp eye with a sly sense of humor reminiscent of John Prine, Mark makes songs that hail from everywhere, incorporating ballads, cowboy songs, jigs, sideshow melodies, and field hollers. His songs give voice to craftsmen, broken-hearted mechanics, heavy equipment operators, squatters and girls with their dirt bikes. Like many of his characters, he’s been around: after growing up in Maryland, Mark’s done some farming, worked as a mechanic, spent years as a commercial fisherman in the northern Pacific and worked as a carpenter in the northeastern US. These experiences have influenced his music the way an oak cask influences good whiskey.
Mark got his first Johnny Cash record when he was 6 years old, and wore it out in short order. A fairer took him to his first Tom Waits show in 1975, and that set fire to the barn, flipped the car in the ditch, and started Mark on his own musical career. Mark has been writing, playing and performing for the last 15 years- writing interesting, carefully crafted songs that maintain a soulful integrity while never taking themselves too seriously. After years of solo work, Mark is currently working with his band, Uncle Buckle. Backing up Mark is pedal-steel player extraordinaire Fooch Fischetti, bassist John Hughes, and the versatile Dean Jones on everything else. When the band begins to play the room fills with dust, tarpaper shacks and decrepit farm machinery. Mark also does occasional solo tours around Ireland, where his singing and songwriting skills are drawing notice.



to write a review


Real lyrics, Down-home musicians, Characters I know I've met
Gritty lyrics, ego-free vocals and band tones that reflect the thematic story quality, real stuff, soulful and without an ounce of pretense. Seems pretty clear that Uncle Buckle comes directly from the gut.
If you think about it, what else really needs to be sung about, ya know?

Lou Davis

Mark Brown...Cool Guy...Great Band!
Uncle Buckle hits a chord…Makes me laugh, look at myself and the world all at the same time! Great stuff! All music should make us feel this good!

Really Excellent!
Wow! Marc Brown's sound is unique and familiar all at the same time. I can't get some of these songs out of my head. Can't wait for the next CD!

tz ferguson

a little woody guthrie, a little tom waits
I really like the songwriting on this cd -- Mark Brown's a good storyteller, has a great sense of humor. Some of the songs are little wistful, but never bleak. The production is warm and well-balanced, and it sounds like you're just hanging around in a room with the band. Great pedal steel!

John Briwa

Fantastic lyrics from Mark Brown
Uncle Buckle is a wonderful collection of songs - Mark Brown's lyrics so often hit the spot in describing the trials and tribulations of modern life. He's spot on!
