media8-333x500

Mark Allan Atwood is a music business veteran.  He’s been knocking around the Texas scene for nearly 30 years.  He’s fronted country bands and metal bands.  But, at the root of it all has been his authentic songwriting.  Inspired by the likes of legendary songwriters such as Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson and Townes Van Zandt, Atwood stands on their shoulders as he crafts his own tunes.  He pairs his genuine lyrics with an immediately identifiable singing voice, and these combinations have allowed him success on his own terms.  MAA has decamped to South Padre Island recently and has added an island vibe to his tunes. Come see him ply his saltwater trade next to the fresh water of the Guadalupe.
