Big Wide Room brings into an exceptional musical alchemy the diverse talents of Mark Davis, Brett Perkins and David Zink. Each member comes to the trio as a veteran performing songwriter with a strikingly different voice, vision and critically-praised body of work. Playing a "California Sound" strain of folk-rock and Americana pop, together they have crafted songs that rise to themes of spirit, life and passion. Audience raves regularly describe this fusion of talents as "awesome...greater than the sum of the parts..." Performing on guitars and percussion with interwoven harmonies, Big Wide Room has drawn early comparisons to Crosby, Stills & Nash, Counting Crows and The Beatles.
Mark's 'You Came Screaming' Album was voted Orange County's ..Album of the Decade.. by the Los Angeles Times.
"...his combination of intensity, intimacy, intelligence and rich musicality most closely recalls two other excellent singer-songwriters of 80' s vintage: Peter Case and Peter Himmelman.."
Now based in Copenhagen (Denmark), the Southern California native has toured 31 countries around several artist releases, and each year leads the Listening Room International Songwriter Retreats at idyllic locations in Europe and the U.S.A.
