    Mark Mulcahy is the former singer of the well regarded and influential Miracle Legion. He also formed the band Polaris and wrote the music for the Nickelodeon show ‘The Adventures of Pete & Pete’.

    Mark’s solo career began with Fathering, an album that received universal praise including Album Of The Month in Uncut and Album Of The Week in The Guardian and featured the track “Hey Self Defeater” which was featured in Nick Hornby’s book 31 Songs.

    From there followed the albums Smilesunset and In Pursuit Of Your Happiness, several tours of the UK and Europe, countless radio sessions and huge critical acclaim for both his songwriting prowess and his remarkable voice. In 2008 he quit everything to look after his children following the tragic death of his wife. To assist him through these troubled times many of his long-time friends and fans banded together to record an album of his songs as a tribute to his wife and the result was 2009’s Ciao My Shining Star, featuring the likes of Michael Stipe, Thom Yorke, Frank Black, Mercury Rev, Dinosaur Jr, The National, and many others.

    Mr. Mulcahy will be touring as well. Last year he made a long-awaited return to the UK for a brief series of shows, including performing a slot at The National’s All Tomorrow’s Parties. He’s playing several US dates including Wilco’s Solid Sound Festival and Mark returns to the UK in August for the End of the Road Festival. Descriptio. RECENT REVIEW. ‘From start to finish, Dear Mark J. Mulcahy is a treat. In fact, it may be his best yet.’ - Pitchfork 7..

    "Mulcahy's been busy reinventing himself as a Lou Reedesque street poet. Rich with broken yet proud hustlers, it's gritty urban dramas never became too heavy-hearted, the breezy tunes blowing through like prime Jonathan Richman." - Mojo 4*.

    "A set of lean and seductively freewheeling, vaguely alt-country toned pop songs with a knockabout cool and great arrangements, that show off the singer's trademark, wryly reflective lyrics to a T." - Uncut 8/1.

    "Melodic, funny and strange" - Mail on Sunday 4*.

    "Now he returns with ‘Dear Mark J. Mulcahy, I Love You’, yet another feather in the cap of one of American music’s most deserving-and one of its most puzzlingly underappreciated-singer-songwriters" - Ben Greenman, The New Yorker « hide
