Mark Allen Felton – A Place For You

Mark Allen Felton honed his musical skills playing in clubs in the Los Angeles area while appearing in videos by Ed OG & the Bulldogs and Tony! Toni! Toné!.

Felton credits Kool & The Gang as an early influence. “When I saw their horn section, I knew then I wanted to play an instrument, and not long after that I was introduced to Grover Washington Jr.’s music. That was it for me, I was hooked!”

In a world where people are quick to label music, Felton’s music can only be put in one category – Great Music! “I strive to deliver my best every time I play, that is what is important to me! Doing my best!”
