A former member of Emeralds, an experimental US trio who issued two highly acclaimed post-rock/ambient albums to significant acclaim, MARK McGUIRE is now five albums deep into an impressive solo career. Developing the sound explored by his former band with greater emphasis on acoustic instrumentation and psychedelic influences, McGuire work is founded on feather light guitar drones that weave and shimmer gradually forming transcendental ambient pieces.
Something of a polymath, MARK MCGUIRE wrote, recorded and played everything on his most recent LP, 2014’s kaleidoscopic ‘Along The Way’. With new music expected later this year, the multi-instrumentalist is signed to superlative US label Dead Oceans, home to several fellow psych/drone rock travellers including Slowdive, Kevin Morby and Phosphorescent.
