The first thing you notice when listening to Mark McGowan is the power and timbre of his neo-Soul voice. A voice that keeps one ear firmly in working class Glasgow, yet transports the other to the Greenwich Village folk scene of the early 60's. McGowan’s intricate picking style and storytelling developed from an early age and became the tools for him to express himself. This year, Mark McGowan signed to NHMM, LLC, a hot new label out of powerhouse publisher Notting Hill Music, and is set to release his sophomore EP, "Speakeasy", on the 30th of November. Mark McGowan's versatility shines across the 4-song collection. From the subtle sensitivity of "Betty" and the rousing momentum of "Bones", to the emotional storytelling of "Roles Reversed" and the grizzly vibrance of the title track, "Speakeasy", Mark channels a thoughtfullness and depth beyond his years.
