Artist/Band: Marksman Lloyd

Name: Mark Lloyd

When did you start making music and why? Started making music at 14 after I heard a Tupac song. I'd written lyrics all my life. When i heard hip hop that was it. I was hooked. 

Sum up your musical sound in four words? If Bob Dylan rapped.

If you could only listen to one album forevermore, what would it be and why? Rodriguez - Cold Fact. My dad showed me that album when I was 10. It started everything.

Greatest rock'n'roll moment of your career to date? Playing a show in a makeshift set-up in the dirt of a backyard for some refugee families. We danced up a dust cloud and it was just super real. Rock'n'roll. 

Why should people come and see your band? Because even if they don't we play our hearts out. Always have and will. Whether there's 1 or 1000.

When and where for your next gig? HyperFest @ Midland Oval on February 20
