Mark Perkins
Name: Mark Perkins

Mark Perkins (artist name ‘Merk’) is a Kiwi born artist, producer & composer.

With a clear goal: make sounds that help you tell your story, Mark approaches composition and production from a fresh perspective, focusing on originality, empathy and professionalism. He and his production studio are equiped with everything needed to get projects from inception to delivery.

When he’s not composing music for others Perkins is out there touring, playing shows, making albums and getting a feel for what’s resonating.

Mark began his career as a touring member of New Zealand bands Tom Lark and Fazerdaze, before releasing his debut album Swordfish in 2017. Swordfish was recorded from a makeshift studio in a store basement at Roundhead Studios, where Perkins was learning the craft of recording and producing under the stewardship of New Zealand’s greatest musical export Neil Finn. Mark would stay late after work, writing songs and applying his newfound engineering skills to make a record that is full of indie-pop gems.

Swordfish went on to win Best Debut Album at the Taite Music Prize, and led to tours with Cub Sport, Marlon Williams and Julia Jacklin in Australia and NZ.
