Voodoo Lounge Live Presents - Mark Morriss (Bluetones) + Support Maria Marr



Mark Morriss is a singer songwriter who famously made his name fronting English indie outfit The Bluetones. Mark fronted the four piece over a successful and fruitful 15 year period, scoring 14 top ten singles and 3 top ten albums, whilst touring the UK, Europe and Japan, before temporarily disbanding in 2011.

After releasing 'Memory Muscle ' in 2008, Mark banded together The Mummys and hit the road. 

He spent the best part of that year touring Memory Muscle while The Bluetones took a short sabbatical, often with his bandmates in tow, either sharing touring duties or joining him in the studio for the odd overdub.

After returning to The Bluetones to record their A New Athens swan song, Mark re-focussed his attention on his solo career. In 2013 he recorded ‘A Flash Of Darkness’, raising the recording funds via a successful Pledge Music campaign.

The album was then given a general release by Acid Jazz Records the following year, whilst Mark continued to tour both as a solo acoustic artist and with an ever changing line up behind him. The various members of The Magical Sex Band.



In the summer of 2015 Mark recorded and released ‘The Taste Of Mark Morriss’ for Acid Jazz. Intended as a companion piece to ‘A Flash Of Darkness’ the album comprised a collection of cover versions of songs that had informed the writing of it’s predecessor.

At the same time as producing and touring his own solo material, Mark has produced the Theme and Chapter music for the audio versions of David Walliams’ successful series of children’s books, from ‘The Boy In The Dress’ right through to his latest, ‘The Midnight Gang’, all released on Harper Collins.

Since 2013 Mark has also been a member of Acid Jazz labelmate Matt Berry’s touring band, The Maypoles. When in 2015 The Bluetones announced that they would be returning to play a series of anniversary shows it started to look like there was never going to be the time to start work on solo record #4, but December 2016 a new Pledge Music campaign was launched to raise a budget to do just that. Titled ‘Look Up’, and with an early 2018 release in mind it looks like Mark’s diary is going to be pretty full for some time.





Maria Marr

Maria Marr is a singer-songwriter and graduate of The Institute of Contemporary Music Performance in London. During her studies, Maria has explored different aspects of music such as composing for film, music production, arranging for orchestras and performing a wide range of music genres, including Blues, Jazz, Fusion, R&B, Rock and Pop.

Embracing music at a very young age by playing the violin, piano and singing, she has written music in different styles, including Dance, Electronic and Pop.

Inspired by the likes of Lana del Rey and Lorde, her songs take shape whilst sitting at the piano, caught up in reflections of the past, as she strongly believes you have to allow music to come to you in a moment of emotional vulnerability.

With a passion for literature and poetry, Maria wrote her first song called 'Childhood' at the age of 9 during a transition form Primary to Secondary school. She entered her first songwriting contest at the age of 13, competing with her singing mentor, a renowned singer from Bucharest, and appearing on national television for the first time.

Her love for performance goes as far as the world of musical theatre, playing the part of 'Maria' in West Side Story and touring at the age of 18 with a theatre company.

Her latest single ‘What I missed in class’ truly defines her music styles, having been chosen as ‘Pick of the Uploader’ by BBC Introducing Cambridgeshire shortly after its release.
