Mark Hildebrand Biography
Little Mark loved sports. Hockey, football, baseball – he played them all. But Mom

always made sure he made time to practice the piano. Later, finding his true passion in

the guitar, he was grateful for every moment of that discipline.

Born and raised in BC, in a home filled with classical piano, western guitar, and hymns

of the church, Mark's musical journey was, from the start, diverse. Upon discovering the

guitar as a young teen, he continued to explore and experiment with many styles of

sound. He would listen to, and study, every great artist he came across, from Phil

Keaggy, to Carlos Santana.

As a young man, he won the Royal Conservatory of Music silver medal while training in

classical guitar. Mark has continued to challenge himself as a classical guitarist,

transcribing difficult pieces, and composing new finger-style works that showcase this

training. Some of these instrumentals appear on his album with One Acre, titled Big

Back Yard.

In the end, however, his heart was won by the blues. Mark has always admired

contemporary blues artists like Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, and Stevie Ray Vaughn, but the

older he gets, the more he finds himself diving into material by the old masters, like

Robert Johnson, Son House and Lead Belly. The result of that passion lead to a

nomination for a Covenant award by the Gospel Music Association in the Blues

category for a song he wrote and recorded - Waiting For the Resurrection.

Whether composing original pieces, performing live, or teaching music at a local

college, Mark’s talent is in demand. He has also been a guitarist for hire for international

performers needing a local musician who is a quick study. His most recent effort

included writing, producing, singing, playing guitar, and lap steel on two recent singles,

Under the Same Sun, and Waiting for the Resurrection, available currently on CD Baby

at http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/markhildebrand.

Mark has mastered many styles, but what defines him best is how he patiently abides in

the Creator of all music. In the song, Language of Love from his first album by the same

name, he writes, “Quiet your heart, don’t make a noise. Listen to that still small voice.”

The value he stores in this is best expressed by C.S. Lewis: "You don't have a soul. You

are a soul. You have a body."

Hear him play.

You'll know it's true.
