Mark Spangler has been writing and performing his songs for many years. His ability to capture and reveal his thoughts and feelings through lyrics invites the listener to connect at a personal level. His melodies are fresh and eclectic. This combination provides for a listening experience that inspires, challenges and entertains. Drawing from the influences of rock, folk, gospel and the blues he has developed a style that enjoys a wide appeal.
Mark was very involved in the Christian rock and contemporary Christian music scene throughout the 80's. After the release of "Shelter" in 1989 he had three nationally released singles that were playing on both Christian and rock radio. Throughout the 90's Mark concentrated on his work as a licensed professional counselor and became passionate about serving emotionally disturbed youth. His songwriting continued and he performed on a limited local level.
Currently, Spangler has returned to performing and has released a CD entitled Transition on Lost Cauz Records. This folk/rock album is a long awaited project that will be appreciated by many who have heard the songs in live performances. Mark's concerts are full of energy and interaction. His ability to communicate with an audience is a trade-mark. He is an artist, lyricist and composer that is authentic and relevant.
Spangler lives in Lewisburg, West Virginia with his wife and children.
