About

Hi everyone.

My name is Michael Quark. I'm a singer-songwriter from Toronto, Ontario, Canada. I've been playing guitar since I was 16 years old, and grew up playing lots of punk rock and nu-metal. Over the past year, I've fallen in love with playing the acoustic guitar, though I'm sure you'll be able to hear my original influences still shining through.

I like to write songs about people; how we see each other, how we affect each other and how beautifully complicated and seemingly chaotic things can be when emotions are involved.

Thanks for checking out my music. Feel free to leave me a message or drop by my super cool website :)

Be nice to strangers.

Michael Quark

    I like the cool part with the synth.
    I really like the vocals too. Do you have the lyrics up?

    @The East Village Vampire: Thanks so much. That's the kind of sound I was going for (and Jay really helped with making it sound a bit more commercial). So your comment makes me feel pretty great.

    @en1gmatic: Hey, thanks. The guy who did all the work on the remix was Jay Helmus - he's on soundcloud as well, you should check him out.
    I'm just solo right now, no band or anything. I used to play with a band back in the day, but I'm moving around too much to really get a band going.
    Let me know when you have more tracks up, I can't wait.
