JUST JAZZ GUITAR Magazine called his most recent 7 string solo guitar recording "A real gem...a fine performance by a talented arranger and performer".

THE COLUMBUS DISPATCH wrote his music "swings from crisp bluesy numbers to nimble jazz workouts". Columnist Fritz the Nite Owl noted his "moving, thought-provoking, mood-inducing music - played superbly, with a gentle swing throughout."

JAZZ IMPROV Magazine wrote "Mark's jazz playing stands out...he far exceeds expectations in his treatment of chord-melody".

THE LONG BEACH (California) SEABREEZE noted "Mark Williams adds a unique, soft ambiance."

Mark Williams has over 40 years' professional experience as a guitarist, composer, arranger, recording artist and teacher. His mastery of the instrument is demonstrated every time he performs. Career highlights include live radio broadcasts from Los Angeles and concert performances with the Mansfield Symphony Orchestra, as well as extensive work in night clubs, fashion shows and wedding ceremonies throughout Ohio. Mark currently performs on Friday nights at Moretti's Restaurant in Upper Arlington, Oh. He frequently performs at the exclusive Athletic Club in Downtown Columbus, and regularly appears as a solo artist at the equally exclusive Buckeye Lake Yacht Club. Other recent engagements include the Grand Ballroom in the Columbus Hyatt Regency and at Soine Vineyards in Powell, OH.

Mark plays the 7 string electric-acoustic guitar in addition to the traditional 6 string model. The additional string has tones extending far into the bass range for a fuller sound than possible on a 6 string guitar. Booking Mark for your event is like hiring both a guitarist and a bass player for the price of only one musician! Be sure to check out the audio recordings of Mendelssohn's THE WEDDING MARCH and the Beatles' MICHELLE, as well as the music video of Christina Perri's A 1000 YEARS on this site to hear Mark on this remarkable and unique musical instrument.

Mark was featured on 6 and 7 string guitars as well as an arranger on saxophone legend Chuz Alfred's recording A COLLECTION OF JAZZ FAVORITES FOR THE YOUNG AT HEART, of which over 16,000 units were sold. Mark has also released two solo acoustic guitar recordings under his own name: HERE, THERE AND EVERYWHERE and WINTER NIGHT SUITE. Words and music on the second CD were all written by Mark.

Long considered Central Ohio's finest solo guitarist, Mark Williams creates the perfect musical environment for all occasions!
