Mark Brine

   Mark Brine has been writing, performing and producing Americana music for well over three decades – long before it became, what it is considered today to be, a viable music genre.
   Americana music is just a relatively new name for music whose roots can be traced to some of the oldest music in America. It is a blend of folk, country and blues. Brine further defines his brand of Americana with songs that are superior studies of love, life and times past, songs that tell stories, songs that make you cry, & songs that move you. His recordings take the listener on a journey from early rural American roots music through it's spillover into the blues to a place where some people are in fact shy! Where life is still precious and significant and death is still a heartbeat that can shatter a soul.
   In 1995, Gavin first gave the genre credibility when it established the Americana Music Chart. "Established as an 'Alternative-Country' base, Americana® is the vast musical ground between Country and A3. Home to more than singer/songwriters and country legends, Americana® is a growing format of quality roots music." It includes new artists as well as older icons such as Jimmie Rodgers and Hank Williams Sr. who have influenced alternative country and remains an alternative to the current offerings of the music industry.
   As Tom Cox wrote in the Guardian Media, "It has yet to be processed by major label vultures … it could be that its intrinsic elements are just too complex and timeless to be diluted." Or in other words, the music industry has yet to figure out a way to commercialize it. But authenticity cannot be cloned and while the record companies were brainstorming trying to figure out what the public wanted, the under promoted, profoundly anti-pop, 'O Brother Where Art Thou' soundtrack sold well over 3 millions copies largely on word of mouth and won album of the year at the 2002 Grammy Awards. Which proves that with more access to information, more places to get music, people are making up their own minds about what they like, as opposed to what's made readily available.
   Mark Brine has a long and distinguished career deeply rooted in country music and American music history as well. Brine grew up in Cambridge, Massachusetts and began his career playing at the age of 13. In his 20s, he moved to Nashville and signed with two record labels as both a staff writer and roster artist.
