Mark Campbell - Guitar Vocals
Houston born , Austin resident of 21 years . The pleasure and pain of founding a band , the aching of a soul intent ...... Producing the band's music for his own indie label , Winesong Records , he still strives for that elusive sound , the ultimate goal of making music Magic . Mark had the honor of being hired into Humble Pie in 1983 , but obligations forced him to pass on the highly appreciated opportunity . Steve Marriott told him , " You sing just like me , but this time with a bit more (Paul) Rodgers in your voice ." Those words rang in his ears for years to come , one of the many rewards of being in music . Philosophy : Self Evolution of the personality and the human psyche , the evolved spirit being the ultimate goal , self -responsibility and the understanding of the human will . That's what is meant by naming the CD " Straight Ahead Human " Sessions occurring in 2018 to complete a CD by the year-end . There were others , but till then , a shadow of an inkling of who , what and where .
