It’s evident that MVI is not only a great musician but also possesses a deep knowledge of music and extensive compositional experience, which shines through in every track.

The songs on this album are sublime. They have the power to transport the listener to beautiful landscapes, creating vivid imagery through the music.

Some tracks are introspective and contemplative, while others are filled with joy and vibrancy. This dynamic range of emotions makes “In The Rain Shadow” a rich and diverse listening experience.

The masterful production of the album is a highlight. Every element, from the airiness of the flutes to the resonance of the strings and the warm wood amplification, is finely tuned to create a deeply immersive sonic experience.

The attention to detail is palpable, and it enhances the overall quality of the music.

I recommend listening to this album multiple times to savor every subtle nuance, much like enjoying a glass of aged whiskey. With each listen, you’ll discover new layers and dimensions to the music, making it a rewarding and evolving musical experience.

One of the most captivating aspects of “In The Rain Shadow” is its ability to evoke a medieval atmosphere in some of the songs. This unique quality allows the music to transport you to a different era, adding a historical and timeless dimension to the album.

This album is a must-listen for those who appreciate music with depth and artistic storytelling.

Mark Vickness began his musical training on piano at age six. The road from there to the composer/modern fingerstyle guitarist he is today included a bachelor’s and master’s degree in composition, studies in classical piano, guitar, sitar and tabla, years as a performing jazz guitarist, composer and arranger, several film scores and two decades of recording and performing as the instrumental half of the acoustic fusion duo, Glass House.

Mark’s performing experience spans a huge range of genres from free improvisation to West African drum and dance ensembles, from Motown and funk bands to big band jazz and orchestral conducting. Schooled in composition by Pulitzer Prize winning composer, Mel Powell, Mark has recorded and performed with world renowned musicians including two time Grammy winners, The Turtle Island String Quartet, Alex de Grassi, Don Ross, violinist, Mads Tolling, and legendary bassist, Michael Manring. Mark’s debut solo CD, Places, has garnered tremendous critical acclaim.

Writing in Acoustic Guitar Magazine (November, 2018), Pat Moran had this to say: “Vickness’ uncanny ability to evoke the complex emotions linked to these times and places transcend the specific and catapults his travelogue into the universal. A varied and virtuosic “photo album” of remote, gritty, and mystical locales, Places traces a map of Vickness’ emotional life, while sketching the subtle and winding pathways creativity takes on its way to fruition.”
