“Mark David Manders has been a mainstay in Texas music for over twenty years. His music reflects his life: an intriguing dichotomy of the introspective soul searcher and the beer swilling, drunken poet. His shows are high energy and unapologetic. His songs reek of alcohol with an occasional hint of guilt. Yet there is a tapestry to his lyrics that reflects influences such as Guy Clark and Kris Kristofferson.
Mark David Manders grew up in Plano, Texas, a suburb just north of Dallas. He credits the 1973 Jerry Jeff Walker album, “Viva Terlingua”, for changing his life.”
