Mark joined Del Amitri in May of 1997, after the recording of Some Other Sucker’s Parade, as a replacement for Ashley Soan. Like Kris, Mark was thrust into the SOSP tour with scant practicing time, but was able to learn the set list quickly. Now, he can play even the most obscure Del Amitri tune. Before joining Del Amitri, Mark was a member of Right Said Fred as well as All About Eve. On May 17, 2002, Mark and his wife Jude announced the arrival of a baby girl called Maddie to their family.
