To describe some artist’s music with one word would be easy but to do that with Mark May’s music would be impossible. But there’s one thing for sure, it’s all dripping with his rich love for the blues.
It all started with a musical family with his older brother Ken teaching him guitar and introducing Mark to such artist as the Beatles and Jimi Hendrix. Mark also has a lot of country music background with his mother and uncle being country/bluegrass singers and songwriters. The former Dickey Betts and Great Southern guitarist and vocalist found the blues when his aunt lent him a copy of B.B. King’s “Live in Cook County Jail” when he was just 11 years old. He took to it and ran.
Mark was named “Musician of the Year” by the Houston Press in 1999,
Mark has released six CDs and is currently working on a seventh album. He gets heavy rotation on Sirius/XM and Sonic Tap radio. He’s also been featured in Blues Review, Guitar Player, Guitar World, Vintage Guitar, Tone Quest and other major publications.
