With the release of debut album ‘It Started Last Fall’, Mark Welles has hooked us all! In particular, acoustic folk anthem ‘Blood On My Face’ has got our attention. With expressive lyrics and a great sound, it is THE song to listen to if you’re tired of the mainstream and want something more unique and raw.

Detailing the journey of life and many of the aspects that make it up, ‘Blood On My Face’ will grab the attention of all who listen. Written in an unusual yet intriguing manner, the lyrics incite thought and reflection. A far cry from the meretricious tunes that we often hear on the radio today, ‘Blood On My Face’ stands out with the passionate and unpretentious way in which it is composed. 

Delivered to us on gritty vocals, it is not only the message that hooks us, but the sound also. The lilting guitar delivers this folksy piece passionately and fervently, whilst staying true to Welles’s rustic, homely style of music. All aspects of ‘Blood On My Face’ pull together to create an immersive listening experience.

As well as ‘Blood On My Face’, we are sure that you will love the rest of Welles’s album ‘It Started Last Fall’. Mark Welles is certainly one to keep an eye on, and we cannot wait to see what he will come up with next!
