Combining Celtic and Nordic vibes into the realms of Country, Alternative Folk and Americana, Glasgow songwriter Mark W. Georgsson released his debut album Faces and Places on Last Night From Glasgow on 27th January 2017. Produced by Idlewild’s Rod Jones and released on limited edition 12” vinyl and digital download, Georgsson’s debut release was celebrated with a sold out show at Glasgow’s world renowned Celtic Connections festival.
Recorded between Edinburgh, Mull and Reykjavík, Georgsson’s approach to recording mirrored his willingness to showcase his music on the road. A solo tour of the Scottish Highlands and Islands followed the album’s release, as did appearances at several festivals including Electric Fields, Iceland Airwaves and Celtic Connections plus ventures oversees to perform in Sweden and the Faroe Islands.
Georgsson has continued to perform extensively since the release of his debut album with a notable performance supporting Chance McCoy of Old Crow Medicine Show at Glasgow’s The Hug and Pint on Saturday 5th October 2019.
Work has continued on recording his sophomore album, with 2020 earmarked for a potential release. With an appearance at Celtic Connections already confirmed, 2020 is already looking bright for Mark W. Georgsson.
