Mark Ellis is a singer/songwriter hailing from and based in Ely, Cambridgeshire. After a turbulent beginning to his career with the band Hamfatter, he has since found stability in an ever growing solo career as well as his previous band Matchbox Preston. He has also played alongside artists such as Athlete and Boo Hewerdine.
Inspired by acts such as Weezer, Oasis, Ryan Adams, Ben Kweller and other contemporaries, his catchy hooks, heavy guitar sounds and heartfelt lyrics are sure to capture an ever growing fanbase.
2013 showed to be his most productive year yet with a single release in association with the charity CLIC Sargant which led to a performance of the track at the Royal Albert Hall for CLIC Sargent’s Annual Christmas Celebration along side Lucy Spraggan and other notable acts. Tirelessly performing and promoting, he has taken part in Oxjam Music Festival within Cambridge as well as reaching out to audiences as far as Edinburgh.
Already working on a wealth of new material, 2014 looks to be his most productive year yet.
