The Man Behind the Music

Hi and Welcome.

Berthmark formally Lennons-idol //0-0\\.

Is a Singer/Song-writing Fun Loving Romantic musician from Dublin/Ireland, His Music consists of a mixture of Folk/Blues/ and Alt/Indie Rock told with a story telling Tongue.

As a child, he remembers that he always loved to delve into the arts and while Sitting on his parents floor spent most of his days writing stories and drawing/painting.

In School he loved to make up characters for himself to role play for his class mates and In 1996 while he was at Secondary School he joined a Drama group. By being in this group , he got a taste of what it would be like to be on  center stage and have to get over the fears of the public.

Mark and a fellow classmate wrote their own short gag reels and after each drama class used to act them out for the rest of the group, which became an on going thing and somewhat a highlight for the class.

The previous year he was taught how to play the thin whistle and bodhran (Irish Drum) and He eventually went on to teach himself other instruments as he started to put his short stories into songs to bring them to life and that Art form took his heart.

A couple of years later he joined a Senior folk group in his local church. This is  where he learned his craft as he got to play with more mature and experienced musicians while mastering his style of playing, to later set up a junior folk group where he to passed on his knowledge in return and used to teach other younger kids how to play.

Over the years Mark played in different bands, Way before the age of the internet and playing the live scene with different styles of music, his future seemed set.

until life started to take it toll….

Back in 2008 due to unforeseeable circumstances and a out of control relationship, Mark had no other choice but to take over full custody of his three young children.

In that time, He had found himself within a  struggle both physically and mentally, fighting his inner demons while trying to raise his family and hold a full time job and in turn trying to keep his passion alive….. His music.

His love for writing is apparent and the ability to tell stories is shown in songs such as…. “Government A”

about our then struggling Irish government under the bad leadership of Brian Cowen and their bad choices and mishaps…….A song most countries today can relate to. 

And His Latest Release a song..Called ” Matthew ” Brings a personal approach to getting to grips with his sons Disability, as he scorns at the powers above.

His music includes covers and Originals and he has built up quite a back catalog of his own songs over the years, Some he had recorded as home demos and some in a recording studio.

Both can be found here…

He is now ready to share to the world his new compilations, and if its GUITAR music you want brought to life through a great story ….. You have come to the right place.

Please Join him on His journey.
