Brief Bio


Mark Jewett is an insightful Michigan storyteller with listeners in over 60 countries. He writes songs that push the boundaries of Americana into an uncommon blend of folk, rock, blues, and prog rock. Throughout them, listeners can hear and feel his honesty, gratitude, and introspective thoughts, with healthy doses of humor and drama to vary the pace. 

His songs betray the effort he makes to find just the right words, taking cues from the likes of Jackson Browne, Paul Simon, Randy Newman, and JD Souther. As a writer, he finds the lighter side of life easy to put to music, but writing about love, loss, and the road between them is harder to get right. Sonically, his tunes span the space between classic folk and epic soundscapes you might expect to hear from Pink Floyd. Somehow, it all fits together to provide an intriguing, self-contained variety show.


With his latest album, The Lucky One, Mark and his superbly talented friends, the Strategic Advisors, have engaged listeners in over 60 countries. His most ambitious project yet, the record is built on earnest voices, honest lyrics, and fearless musicianship.


Mark is equally at home as a solo act, with a full band, or anything in between. He has shared the stage with Joel Mabus, Austin Walkin’ Cane, and Jon Brooks and headlined shows at Trinity House Theatre and Black Crystal Café. 


His lyrics have been twice recognized by American Songwriter Magazine. In 2021, he performed for music legends Rodney Crowell, Allison Moorer, and Peter Asher at a songwriting workshop led by Crowell in Nashville, where he received enthusiastic praise any songwriter would be honored to hear.
