BIOGRAPHY:
Songwriter Mark Hewer has discovered the Web as a means to promote his music and collaborate with artists across the Atlantic. With the help of a robust online presence, Hewers’ discs travel as far as China, Germany and Sweden.

Mark, a 44-year-old musician/songwriter from Canada, explains his interest in music began in 1965 at the age of seven. Mark and brother Ken, having taken the metal base off the family globe, used it to complete their first drum kit. With a snare drum and the bottom of the globe as a cymbal, Hewers’ career in music began! Growing up in Windsor, Ontario, Mark was exposed to the Motown explosion coming out of Detroit in an era with illustrious artists such as The Supremes, The Temptations and The Jackson 5, as well as all of the great new music being played on "The Big 8" CKLW radio waves in the 1960's & 70's. Mark has drummed for numerous bands in the Windsor/Detroit area and has over 25 years experience in the music business. Now, Marks’ passion has turned to songwriting, recording and sharing his music with fans around the world.

Sue Braiden of CBC Radio says, "Mark Hewer is a gentle, passionate and gifted composer. Even better, he's from my hometown, Windsor, in Canada. "Daybreak" is a touching instrumental, one of several beautiful pieces in Hewer's repertoire. His ability to collaborate (have a listen to "Sea of Emotion") is likely the product of his experience as a drummer for various bands on the circuit. Hewer's got much more than just a knack for rhythm. His ability to create well-textured scores is almost poetic, not getting caught in the trap of formula songs. He adroitly crosses genres, moving as easily through instrumentals and vocal pop pieces as he does the jazzy, delicious
little piano riffs (What's Up), and even a gorgeous chamber piece (Walkerville Times). Mark Hewer's scores are shapeshifters -- melodically layered journeys that are a delight to take."

The Walkerville Publishing Company states: “Expect to hear plenty of 12-string acoustic guitar tones, MIDI keyboards and the occasional distorted guitar melody from collaborator Mike Burn. The innocence of the music starkly contrasts the shock appeal tactics common to new artists. You could leave the disc playing in a room full of small children with little concern.”
