Mark Ciani has been a persistent presence in the New York City music scene for the better part of 25 years. Starting off as a songwriter and keyboardist for punk ska band Freaks from the Apocalypse in the 1990s, Mark established himself as a dynamic performer and compelling writer. In the 2000s, Mark stepped away from live performance and went on to ghost write for independent artists in and around New York CIty. Beginning in 2012, Mark played keyboards, and wrote and produced for his own projects, each released under a different moniker, including Stone Mountain Station's Electric Silence, The Alternative Facts' Don't Worry, Babe, Model Citizen's The Next Life, and Crane Kick's Midlife Crisis. Last year, Mark assumed lead singer duties for the first time on two albums released under his own name, titled King of Death and King of Death Returns. Later this year, Mark will be releasing a third album under his own name, titled Sad Robot.
