Everybody knows that in college, it’s the jocks and the musicians who get the girls.  Mark Russell was both.  Playing lacrosse at his university in Florida, Mark’s friends didn’t even know he sang, at first: “I was sitting in my dorm room with my guitar, singing quietly to myself when my roommates walked in. They had never heard me – I didn’t have any confidence in my voice – so they started making me go around door-to-door in the girls’ dorm: ‘Can I sing for you?’ I was still kinda quiet and shy with it, though”. You’d never guess that now.  After having multiple songs featured on hit MTV shows “The Real World” and “Warren the Ape”, being featured on HitsDailyDouble and JustinTimberlake.com, and playing with Jon McLaughlin, Hanson, Avril Lavigne and One Republic, Mark’s definitely come out of his shell.

“At the end of the day I just want to make music that I’d like to listen to”, Mark says, “and I listen to all different kinds of music.  It all has a bit of me in it so hopefully it all works together. I think the fans like it, and that’s all that matters to me”.
