Byron Bay based songwriter Mark Ridout records lush and emotive ‘cinematic folk’ soundtracks. With a longstanding love for film music, the songs are primarily composed for marriage with moving picture.
The London born singer/songsmith has supported the likes of Ed Sheeran and Kate Miller-Heidke, performing at renowned UK venues such as The Troubadour and The Bedford, and toured the United States and India before moving to live in Australia in 2010. His voice has been described as “compelling and hugely expressive” (Hotpress Magazine, UK), he has reviewed music for BBC radio and has worked as a music therapist for mental health organisations across the globe.
