The producer, arranger, composer, and Piety St. Studio owner cut his teeth as a teenage songwriter signed to Elektra Records and an apprentice in the late 60s studios of NYC and L.A. Mark hung out with the Flying Burrito Brothers at the Whiskey and was seen as fresh meat at the Troubadour. Allen Ginsberg, REM, Marianne Faithfull, John Scofield, Sun Ra, and Hal Wilner are just a few of the projects he’s been a part of. The new Michot’s Melody Makers record, “Cosmic Cajuns From Saturn,” is the latest in his psychedelic journey. Mark’s stopover with the Troubled Men may be his strangest trip yet.
