Mark Roxley McCormack was born in Hobart and went to school on King Island, before moving to Victoria to begin a career in sound engineering. He recorded demos in his studios for many musicians from Sony, Mushroom and Shock Records. He was a multi-instrumentalist who toured with an Eagles cover band for six years. His broad musical skills led him to Alice Springs in 2013 where he worked training Aboriginal musicians at the CAAMA Music record label. Mark lived with his wife, Monica, on the coast of Victoria in Yanakie, South Gippsland and was inspired by his Christian faith and gratitude for life.
