About Mark Rudd: Mark Rudd has a message. The L.A. based singer/songwriter challenges the current musical climate of war, hatred, and avidity with a simple message, "Go Ahead and Love on Somebody..."

This is also the title of Rudd' s 2008 debut album, an eclectic mix of folk/rock ballads inspired by the vocalist's life and times. Mark Rudd uses his earthy, soulful vocals and acoustic guitar to paint a colorful picture that's as warm and bright as California's sunrise. Rudd captures the human experience. "I'm inspired by many things, when you're open and honest you end up writing great songs that people relate to, for me it's all about a feeling."

Mark's fantastic journey of love and longing begins like most musical experiences. As a fan and listener. "I've always loved music that I could sing to before I could play guitar,'' remembers Rudd, "I would sing along to music in my car," It wasn't until Rudd started to get in on the act that his passion for music started to awaken inside. "Something inside came alive and I think it was the missing part of my life," Mark took this vision as a cue to write, record, and perform his own songs.

Not long after moving to Los Angeles, Mark joined forces with admired producer, Kevin Dippold and headed to the recording studio. Dippold who just signed a distribution deal with Universal music called upon instrumentalists to donate their time and abilities to contribute to the album. " A lot of people have given their time for free or next to nothing because they believed in the project," say Rudd. Together they finished Go Ahead... a collection of ten songs written in the story form.

Many influences of music extensively layered within the album. Traces of pop, folk-fusion and airy acoustic melodies punctuated with a gentle orchestrated backdrop. Mark's warm, folksy vocals feel engaging and cozy against the lush atmospheric instrumentation. Rudd's voice is distinctive and soulful as he recites tales of travel, adventure, and dreamy sensuality. Mark has taken his act on the road performing to devoted fans from the West to his former Midwest home.
