Guitarist Mark Drummond takes a funky, soulful approach to every song he plays. After honing his
skills in bands touring the Midwestern and Southern US, he relocated to Southern California and worked as a sideman with a a variety of funk, R&B, gospel, rock n’ roll and smooth jazz acts. His versatility is a great asset with Mia Karter and The Hits, who cover an amazingly wide variety of styles in their repertoire.
Mark began teaching himself guitar as a teenager, and was soon gigging and traveling with bands before finishing high school, later playing bars 5 nights a week to help pay for his college tuition. Along the way he was exposed to a universe of guitarists he never heard of back in his Mississippi Delta hometown, inspiring him to develop a unique style, with elements of R&B, hip-hop, funk, rock and jazz fused into a unified, funky whole.
Mark has released several CDs of original music, produced and provided guitar tracks for international and domestic artists, and composed music for indie films, TV pilots and commercials.
