Mark Growden is a singer, composer, writer, performer, and music educator based in San Francisco, CA. He was nominated for "Best Americana Artist" twice by the San Francisco Weekly Music Awards. He is known for his passionate performances, his soulful voice, and his thoughtful and poetic lyrics. He accompanies himself with saxophone, accordion, banjo, sruti box, and even plays the bicycle handlebars. Recorded live in the studio, his upcoming album Lose me in the Sand is his second place-based album with Porto Franco Records engineered by Oz Fritz (whose resume includes Tom Waits and Caetano Valoso). It follows on the heels of his accordion-driven critically acclaimed Americana-noir masterpiece Saint Judas recorded in Oakland. The new album is crafted around the banjo, chosen by Growden for its timbre and its place in the history of American folk music. Lose Me in the Sand is a tribute to roughshod beginnings of American music, the spirit of resilience and fortitude that music represents, and to Growden's own rural mountain roots in Pinetown, a small, depression-stricken California logging town.
