Mark Westin

I've released three albums of original songs (working on #4 now). Along with my musical cohort Steve Giordano, I received an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Music for the feature documentary "The Everyday", composed and performed the musical score for award-winning independent film "Riversense", and contributed songs to the soundtrack of "Fast Lane Summer". I've performed and recorded across the U.S, in Canada and the United Kingdom, sharing stages with diverse artists including Fishbone, Jon Herington (Steely Dan), The Klezmatics, Men Without Hats, Joey Ramone, Johnny Thunders, and The Waitresses. I'm beloved by bikers and old ladies alike, and there's a small cult devoted to me on the Belgium-France border.

I lead ReBurt, an 8-piece group performing fresh versions of the classic songs by Burt Bacharach and Hal David.

I'm also the host of SongSmith, a streaming video series featuring original songwriters from New York's Hudson Valley in performance and conversation.

I'm a songwriter who believes in serving the song, which sometimes means I'm not the one singing it. My songs are available to other artists, and for licensing to television and film. Please email me for details.
