Mark Frith Live

Solo Artist, Singer, Songwriter, Guitarist, Producer, Artist, Musician.

Mark Frith burst onto the national UK music scene in 2007. He originally was the driving force and singer/songwriter of Wigan/Liverpool band ‘The Troubadours’

Signed to loog (polydor) UK and BMG japan, indie hits in England followed with the band topping the BBC indie charts with two singles ahead of the planned album release. The UK release of the Album never happened but did get released in Japan on BMG in 2009 giving the band a huge top ten Album and a number one in the Japan video charts with ‘Gimme Love’

After a few years of heavy touring; including playing V Festival and Tokyo’s Summer Sonic Festival, as well as providing support for notable artists such as Paul Weller and The Enemy; Frith disbanded the group in late 2009. Due to it becoming more and more frustrating about the debut album being put back and back into mid 2010. initial buzz with Q magazine included them in the ten best new bands of the year in 2008 with Duffy and the courteeners.

Mark has picked up great plaudits for his Songwriting. Paul Weller called him a ‘Classic British Songwriter’ and famous record Producer John Leckie declared him ‘the best Songwriter I’ve worked with in 10 years’

In Oct 2011 The Troubadours Announced they would be getting back to together for a Sold Out gig at the Liverpool Lomax… Splitting again in 2015

As of 2017 mark announced he would be starting a solo career and has already toured Japan solo and sold out numerous gigs
