Mark Rosenberg is a singer-songwriter based out of Orange County, California, exploring the realms of folk and blues in a modern rock setting. Influenced by the likes of Paul Simon, Leonard Cohen, Dispatch, Fleet Foxes, Grateful Dead and Bob Dylan, Mark's introspective lyrics paint a diverse and yet balanced view of life: laughter with pain, joy with sorrow and love with loss.













Mark’s first EP, "The Day Is New", boasts 6 original songs ranging in sound from acoustic coffee-shop ballads to full-band rock ‘n’ roll. "Sweet Are The Sounds", the single from the EP, features catchy melodies and a driving chorus reminiscent of the alternative rock of the 1990s.















“On The Way Home”, Mark’s first full length album, was released on July 16th, 2013 on all major digital distributors and select retail locations. The album offers a blend of sounds and gives the listener an opportunity to hear Mark both look forward to the future and reflect on the past. At the time of its production and release, Mark had been living in Brooklyn, NY and performing with the Mark Rosenberg Band, a 5 piece powerhouse. They played numerous shows throughout New York City, including a release party for this album at The Suffolk in the Lower East Side. You can see videos of the band here.









Mark released ‘Some Fires Keep Burning’ on August 5 2014 with producer Mike Davidson, of Plaid Dog Recording in Boston, MA. Together they are made instant hits. With a crowd funding campaign on IndieGogo, they were able to fund a 6-song EP. With Andrew Zeitlan on drums and Karli Cornell laying down some killer trumpet parts, these songs are bound to made you tap your feet and bob your head. Together with long-time collaborator, Josh Rifkin, Mark created a thrilling music video for his single ‘Don’t Wait,’ which features Karli Cornell’s killer trumpet. Check out the album here. Mark, Andrew, and Karli have just recently moved to Orange County, CA, where they are taking up roots and preparing to take the laid-back, SoCal world by storm. Keep your eyes and ears open, because you’ll be hearing a lot about these guys real soon!
