Mark Nichols has enjoyed some notable achievements on the back of his previous releases: Guardian, Birdsong, The Traveller, In the Arms of Angels and Fuel for the Fire. His journey has led to the support of BBC Introducing, who extended Mark an invite to the 2013 BBC Musicians Masterclass at Pacific Quay, Glasgow. Relentless touring also earned the endorsement of Tanglewood Guitars, G7th The Capo Company and Elixir Strings, who Mark continues to proudly represent. In 2015, Mark began working with new manager and good friend Mike Thomson and the fruits of this partnership have been ripe with success. Mark has supported Nick Mulvey at London’s Somerset House, filmed at Fountain studios, recorded a new single (due for release) at the prestigious Foundry Studios and attended a BBC Introducing residential weekend at the National Centre for Folk Arts. Mark will be touring throughout the rest of the year to promote his new release Trapped By Smoke.
