Built to roam, singing songs and telling stories along the way. Mark Tegio’s songs do not help settle the dust of the wanderer, but rather, travel along side playing ode to a ramblin’ fever. He often credits the influence of Blaze Foley and Townes Van Zandt for his guitar picking and songwriting style. Still, while their influence shines through, it only acts to illuminate the sincerity of his own approach.
A native of San Diego, he came up being caught in between the highs and lows one may find in the southwest of California. Through all his journeys back and forth across the states, he now resides in Santa Cruz, California…in his own words, “for the time being.” Just playing his own take on an amalgam of outlaw country, folk, and blues.
