Album Notes
This son of an Indian Chief, is a native of Southeast Texas (Beaumont/Port Arthur).
John Mark is an "Old School" styled Country Music Recording Artist/Singer, Songwriter. He has a faithful following of diehard fans who describe him as "Soulful", "Real Country Music" Artist, whose performances are fun and extremely entertaining, and his vocals are "Heartfelt"
John Mark is a throwback from when Country Music was about real life stories accented with a fiddle and a steel guitar, and the beat kept the dance floors loaded from Texas to Louisiana! John Mark's music is heavily influenced from his Cajun background and his upbringing in a diverse community. His Mother is a soulful Country Music singer and Entertainer and the community he was raised in was filled practically door to door with musicians and entertainers from all Genres of music from Traditional Cajun, Zydeco, Rhythm and Blues, Soul, Rock and Roll, Swamp Pop, and Outlaw Country Music.
John Mark recorded a 14 song album in 2004 ("Carrying On The Name") of which ten of the songs were written by him. He is working on re-releasing this project to make it available to the public. He started a show on YouTube in 2012 was gaining a foothold and a devout following called; "Backroads America" where he performed cover tunes and gave interesting, historical facts on Country Music Artist. He would also leave you with his own perspective on Country Music.
By 2016 John Mark Davis has weathered some contract, family, and financial issues that have put "Backroads America" and his Album "Carrying On The Name on hiatus. He has since written and accumulated new material and exciting, fun and informative script for a new show on Facebook and YouTube called "Bayou Self" Sessions. This show is growing with new devout followers by the day, it is personable and interactive, where John Mark is cultivating a close relationship with his followers! Bayou Self Sessions is filled with live videos of performances of John Mark's brand of music, and special guests. this show also contains Cajun, and Native cultures, outdoor life and Cajun cooking, wild game preparation, canning, and preserving homegrown foods. Be sure to check it out on Facebook @ Johnmarkdaviscountrymusic@bayouself.sessions
John Mark Davis is of Native American and Cajun ethnicity. He enjoys hunting, fishing, cowboying, cooking, farming, processing home grown food and participating in Pow Wows and traditional native dances. He says; "I love all of those things equally as much as the other, but while I am doing any of these other things, my mind is always on my music and the stage, but when I'm on the stage, I think of nothing else!"
John Mark just adores scratching the itching ear of the Traditional Country Music crowd!
Like a radio personality once said of John Mark's music; "This is the purest form of hardcore, hardwood floor Country Music!"
John Mark is determined to give you your money's worth, whether it's at a backyard barbeque or on the stage at a packed theater! He believes that it is crucial to SING and FEEL every word of a song, rather than just remembering the lyrics and melody!
