Mark Geary ‘I want to learn how to breathe on stage. I want to learn how not to die, I want to learn how to be able to control a room.’

‘I’m in the industry of applause’ is one of the first things Mark Geary says when asked about his position on the optimism spectrum. ‘So when you don’t get it, you think you’re a failure’. Mark talks to us about having to learn to take the sweet, and only the sweet form his experiences. There is no doubt that he has had a life rich in experience, as he talks about his humble musical beginnings in New York city, as he slowly built his way up to a regular live slot alongside greats such as Jeff Buckley.

Mark talks in detail about his journey to learn how to capture an audience in the right way on the New York scene. ‘I want to learn how to breathe on stage. I want to learn how not to die, I want to learn how to be able to control a room.’ Mark also perfectly expresses the difficulties he has experienced recording music, personifying his own song ‘Battle of Troy’ as a stubborn child who will just not cooperate. It is likely that this perception of his own song stems from his own self-assessment in music, and drive to be a perfectionist.

Over the years Mark has released a number of albums, including ‘Live, Love, Lost it-NYC’, a live album to pay homage to the town which gave life to his musical career.
