RELEASED ON DEC. 12, 2023 – Nashville, TN: My latest Single, “WHEN WILL YOU COME HOME AGAIN” can now be heard on 80+ music platforms worldwide! This is the first song I not only wrote & performed but arranged and produced it in studio and am especially proud of the final tracks. It’s a song about two lovers, who have gone their separate ways and after years have gone by, they still have a desire to know whether they cross each others minds from time to time. This haunting melody is further heightened by the sounds of the pedal steel guitar played by the renowned Mr. Bruce Bouton, who’s played on both Ricky Skaggs & Garth Brooks albums. I’m honored to have him on this record, so give it a listen! Here’s a link on YouTube:

And each year at Christmas, remember to listen to last year’s Release called “THE MYSTERY”. I re-released it this year in the form of a lyric video found on YouTube here: It has an uplifting message for such a time as this and laced with a buttery smooth violin track played by Ms. Julie Jackson. I wrote this song out of my personal salvation experience, (which I’ve often nicknamed, ‘My Love Song to Jesus’), it was written with a vision so that others would be able to relate to the same kind of experience I had. At Christmas time and every day of the year, I hope this song Blesses you, the listener.

And don’t forget to listen to my last Single “FOR YOU”. Recorded at The Noise Floor in Franklin, TN, with Grammy Award winner, Mr. Jonathan Crone, you’ll love this catchy tune about dating & romance. Remember to ‘FOLLOW” me and my Band, Mark Anthony Ensemble as an Artist on Spotify or your favorite music platforms and as always, Thanks for your support!!! Here’s the link:

Also a Fan Favorite, listen to “TAKE ME DOWN SLOW”‘ released last year and available on all the music platforms!! “Take Me Down Slow” is about a ‘dangerous’ woman who knows how to capture a man’s attention, and when she does…..look out! Also recorded at The Noise Floor in Franklin, TN, this song rocks and is the tune I open my Shows with. Make sure you download a copy today to your playlist at the link:
