Mark Utley is an Indiana-born singer/songwriter who has called Cincinnati, Ohio home for the last 22 years. He is the driving force behind the acclaimed roots-rock/Americana band Magnolia Mountain, the honky-tonk Country outfit Bulletville, and the two Music for the Mountains fundraising concerts and compilation albums.
A prolific songwriter, arranger, and interpreter of songs, Mark has written, recorded, and released almost 70 songs in the past five years. In addition, his song "There is Enough" was recorded and released on The Tillers' second album, By the Signs, and he contributed the musical bridge to "Killin' the Flower" and many of the bass parts for Shiny and the Spoon's Ferris Wheel album.
Mark is a three-time nominee for CityBeat Magazine's annual Cincinnati Entertainment Awards (CEA's) in the Songwriter category. He released his debut solo album, Four Chords and a Lie, in July 2013.
In addition to performing locally and regionally with Magnolia Mountain and Bulletville, Mark also plays out with stripped-down Trio and Quartet versions of MM, as a duo with bandmate Renee Frye, and as a solo act (including performances at the 2013 Bunbury Music Festival and the 2013 CEA award ceremonies). He also currently moonlights as the bass player for Covington, KY-based Wonky Tonk and the Holiday Ramblers.
Mark is currently at work writing new material for planned 2014 releases by both Bulletville and Magnolia Mountain.
