It’s really all about the blues. It is the constant that has run through the music journey that Mark has taken. While not a classic blues man at first blush, it is undeniable that blues and soul music runs deep in Marks singing, bass playing and songwriting. Mark’s music is a mix of styles that combines elements of Sting, John Mayer, and Keb Mo.
In October of 2013 Mark Bezanson released his first CD of original material called Half Lies Half Truths. This collection of 12 songs was Produced by Caleb Miles and tells stories about the classic themes of love, relationships, and a bond with the elements.
“You should get the Mark Bezanson CD… It’s one of those records that really does offer something for everyone.. It’s a record you need to hear. You’ll thank me later. “

“Mark Bezanson’s CD, “Half Lies Half Truths”…catchy pop riffs deliver biting political exposés, funk rock tunes contain painful psychological narratives, and jazz sections interrupt rock ballads on the emotional vagaries of love. The result? Exhilarating, beautiful…”
-The Grapevine, Wolfville N.S.
