Mark Edgar Stuart

Friday, Oct 4

Most folks will find themselves compatible with Mark Edgar Stuart, whose musicality and honest voice showcase a resilient and relaxed artist, both sage and seasoned. You’ll have a tough time finding a more widely-embraced modern singer-songwriter in Memphis – Stuart’s enthusiasm about his adopted hometown and what it has to offer is magnetic, and his songs will stick with you. Grammy-winning music writer/director Robert Gordon is a big fan, often spinning Mark’s tracks on his weekly radio show, and other critics agree: “His acerbic wit is reminiscent of John Prine and Randy Newman” (No Depression); “His wry, cutting view of the world makes something old new again” (Paste); “Always maintaining a tender demeanor, his songwriting is smart as it is sincere” (Pop Matters). Mark’s stories are sweet but never saccharine, even-keeled but deeply affecting.
