One of the finest song-smiths of his generation, Dublin-born Mark Geary is an intoxicating mix of spontaneous wit, charismatic storytelling and finely crafted songs reminiscent of those penned during the halcyon days of Dylan.
Mark Geary is one of Ireland's dearest songwriting treasures, having honed his craft in New York alongside luminaries such as Jeff Buckley and Glen Hansard, Mark has continued a rich recording and performing career for over two decades.
From the outset it is impossible not to be charmed by Geary, who delivers both his music and his stories in unassuming and singular style. His natural humour and ability to read the moment, give his shows a uniqueness, leaving his audiences with the feeling that they have just experienced something very special.
It’s five years since his last studio album and in that time, Mark has been frequently touring, building his fan-base throughout Europe and the US, and ‘gig-bashing’ songs shaped from ideas born on the road.
For this latest studio album, 'The Fool' - produced by Karl Odlum in France, Geary has amassed a collection of well-honed lyrical songs with catchy hooks which often belie the deep emotions at play.
