Mark Kingswood - 50 Years of 'My Way' The Genius of Sinatra
Mark Kingswood brings his full ten-piece live band to the Hideaway stage as the acclaimed artist evokes the golden era sounds of Vegas and the Sands Hotel for this exclusive show paying homage to the seminal Sinatra album ‘My Way’ (released on this very day in 1969). Mark will be performing tracks from the album, a nod to the fellow members of the Rat Pack plus songs from his debut album 'Strong', all bearing the hallmark and undeniable influence of The Chairman of The Board.
Having performed as a music artist for over two decades, Mark has also forged a successful career as a record producer and songwriter. His achievements include credits on Platinum and Gold discs sales in the USA, Japan & Ireland. Mark has also had cuts with the likes of Sony, 19, and Disney. This out-of-the limelight success seemed to be where Mark would hang his hat, however the young boy’s dream was far greater than that. By an amazing stroke of serendipity, it was Frank Devito, a successful Canadian business entrepreneur with a passion for music, who opened the door for him and his dream.
When Frank saw music industry legend David Foster pick Mark out of an audience to sing on stage at the iconic Place des Arts in Montreal, he knew he needed to help bring his voice to an international audience. “When a guy like Foster says wow ...you listen!”
With a fresh start in Canada, Mark did not waste a moment to get his own style out there, and released his first original music album, STRONG. The recordings show off his range as an impeccable vocalist, inspired writer, and talented arranger and producer as they sway from brassy, up-tempo dancefloor numbers (Strong, Dancing on A Monday, and the tongue-in-cheek Got A Thing for Swing) to heart stopping, evocative ballads (Velvet Touch, and Shine On).
Mark Kingswood is redefining what it means to be a modern-day crooner. He infuses his original compositions with a dose of energy that brings the Big Band universe into a new era, rejuvenating this enduring genre with panache. Singer, songwriter and producer, Mark Kingswood masters with disarming ease the musicality that accompanies him on stage and in the studio. Taking an obvious pleasure evolving this modern crooner style, the artist brings a unique passion to his work, resulting in musical works that really stand out.
