Mark Etheredge – Connected

Los Angeles, California based composer and keyboardist Mark Etheredge started his solo career with the album As Dawn (1990), a New Age debut. With Dean Wong he founded the duo Mark & Dean releasing the albums Walking Into Freedom (1999) and Man Of My Dreams (2000). 2012 followed adult contemporary vocal session Change Coming. With his new album Connected he reached the contemporary jazz realm.

Mark calls his new project his happiest album. The album was produced by Paul Brown and lists prolific musicians like guitarists Paul Brown and Chuck Loeb, drummer Gorden Campbell, bassist Roberto Vally and percussionist Richie Gajate Garcia, further trumpeter Lee Thornburg and saxophonists Greg Vail and Andy Suzuki.

The relaxing Groovin’ With My Baby starts the album with a catchy warmhearted melody. Be Who You Are follows continuing the uplifting and positive mood.
