Not Another Singer Songwriter - Mark Geary

Mark Geary is an Irish singer songwriter based in New York. He entered with a green card when he was 19 and headed over to East Village where he started writing and preforming his songs.

He comes from the quiet, laid back acoustic kind of Nick Drake school. The track I've posted comes from his debut lp 33 1/3 Grand street and is pretty representative.

This was one of those lps I bought un heard when I first got broadband and discovered a sadly now defunct website that was basically a database of links to Irish artists. This meant a constant stream of padded envelopes through my letterbox.
