ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The title 'hardest working man in show business' may have found a new home. Canadian, Vancouver based singer/songwriter and recording artist Mark Browning has for the past five years earned that title with gritty determination, endurance, and heart. A bold statement to be sure, given the likes of James Brown and Stompin' Tom Connors, both unofficial candidates for the moniker. But with the character of an old time hockey player and the stamina of a race horse, Browning has become a Canadian grass roots sensation.

Embarking on the ambitious coast to coast "YEARS OF SADNESS" Canadian national tour, Browning boarded a Greyhound bus in Vancouver on May 5th, 2000 - he didn't arrive home from the tour until December 23rd. Along the way... 10 provinces, 2 states, 36 cities, 98 performances, 629 hours travelled, and over 30,000km of mileage logged. And, in true do-it-yourself 'folk-hero' style, Browning took on bookings, publicity, record distribution, and tour management himself. Who says musicians don't work hard...

Captivating the imagination of fans and media alike, the West Coast Music Award 2001 nominee ("Male Artist Of The Year ") has become the regular subject of newspaper articles and radio/television programs - all fascinated by a figure who steadfastly goes about the jaded business of rock & roll the old fashioned way - with blood & sweat, heart & soul. True to type, Browning shuns the usual mentors, Radiohead, Kurt Cobain, Elliott Smith, etc. In fact, he's likely not even heard their music - instead, the self-confessed 'dinosaur' treasures vinyl and cites the names Stephen Stills, Bob Dylan, John Cale, and the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band among his many influences.

But even if Mark Browning does not chase the modern world, it invariably chases him. The release of the FACTOR funded record, "YEARS OF SADNESS" in April of 2000 co-incided with a state-of-the-art website (www.oxmusic.ws). In addition, the release of the videoFACT funded, and MUCH MUSIC aired video "GASOLINE" (directed by Warren Sonoda) have all conspired to bring the reluctant, wandering minstrel-like artist into the realm of the modern day recording artist.

Stoney

Next generation of folk legends.
AKA OX, Mark Brownig could be selling out the Fillmore in San Fran, or the Knitting Factory in NY. His live performance are genuine sit down and be inspired shows. If your not a fan, you soon will be, for these haunting tunes become addicting. Remember his name.

phil from losers/weepers

s'got that winsome towns van zandt kinda feel
A pluck and strumming reminiscent of the old-time folky greats that you know and love, with a universal lyrical appeal. Reminded me of the late Townes Van Zandt, and what could be a higher compliment, even down to the cock-eyed (no pun intended) sense of humor on the second track. Kudos also for the work ethic.
