SoulTracks 10 Gems: Amber Mark

March 5, 2020 — Welcome back to 10 Gems, our new series featuring 10-song, single-artist playlists that we think may especially appeal to SoulTrackers. The focus here is not on track position or “hits,” although some are included; rather, it’s all about quality, atmospherics, groove, and feel.

March 5, 2020 — Welcome back to 10 Gems, our new series featuring 10-song, single-artist playlists that we think may especially appeal to SoulTrackers. The focus here is not on track position or “hits,” although some are included; rather, it’s all about quality, atmospherics, groove, and feel.

Our featured artist is Amber Mark, a gifted and graceful 26 year old singer-songwriter who was born in a Tennessee barn and now resides in New York City’s Greenwich Village. Mark is a veritable self-contained unit: She largely writes and produces her own tracks, which draw upon her personal experiences and are striking for their warmth and honesty. Her debut album, 3:33 am, was well-received by music critics upon its release in 2017, and her audience has been rapidly building. Mark’s music incorporates elements of R&B, soul, hip hop and bossa nova and features her signature smoky, rich and sincere vocals. If you like Sade and other singers with textured voices, Mark may be your new favorite artist.  Enjoy.
