Mark Williams

With a music career spanning almost 2 decades Mark has emerged as one of Australia`s leading male singers. Rising out of relative obscurity, 1990 saw the release of "Show No Mercy", a single which hit the top 5 in both sales and chart success after laying dormant for more than 6 months. Even today, "Show No Mercy" is recognised as an inspirational song and is still used by many as a motivational anthem. However, Mark`s career goes a lot futher than just chart success.

Born in New Zealand he has been a singer since childhood. In the mid 70s he left college with a band that was to become very popular on the local New Zealand circuit. By 1978 he had a string of hits behind him after going solo. Voted Top Male Singer 2 years in a row, Mark decided to leave the shores of New Zealand in pursuit of an international standing. He left behind two no. 1 songs, countless Top 10 hits and four gold albums. In the years to follow he had quickly established himself in the lucrative session world of Sydney singing many radio and TV commercials and become a favoured back up vocalist on albums by major Australian talent, Tim Finn, Renee Geyer, Jenny Morris, Eurogliders, Ian Moss, Richard Clapton, The Church, Sharon O`Neil.

Today you will still see his name on the credit lists of Diesel, Rockmelons, Peter Andre, Margaret Ulrich, Marcia Hines. It was also at this time that he sought his other music love - musical theatre, funk music, soul music and the like. After 2 singles with local Sydney band, Boy Rocking, Mark was signed to Albert Productions and began taking steps once again towards another fully-fledged solo career. Following the success of "Mercy" he appeared on the soundtrack of the successful Australian movie, Strictly Ballroom, singing "Time after Time" with the star that movie, Tara Morice. Mark holds a strong position within the music industry extending his talents even futher to the field of jazz and acoustic efforts. He is currently working on material for another album and his voice has matured a long way since the days when he sang the theme song to Australia`s soapie, Home&Away.
