Profile of the performer Mark Fosson:
Songwriter and guitarist from Kentucky.
In the late '70s Fosson sent some song demos to [a=John Fahey]'s West Coast-based [l=Takoma] Records. Fahey was impressed with what he heard and offered Fosson a recording deal. Fosson lost no time in relocating to Los Angeles and began recording, but as bad luck would have it, Takoma was in some difficulty, and the label soon folded. Fahey allowed Fosson to retain the master tapes of the sessions, however. These tracks finally saw the light of day as 'The Lost Takoma Sessions' from [l=Drag City] Records in 2006.
On the West Coast, Fosson met fellow songwriter [a=Edward Tree], and the two began working together, forming the Bum Steers, a country-tinged group, in the late '80s, eventually being invited to play the Grand Ol’ Opry at the request of [a=Porter Wagoner]. Fosson's material appeared on several soundtracks through the 1990s. In 2001 he began collaborating with singer/songwriter Lisa O'Kane, who recorded several of his songs and also began recording a solo project, 'Jesus on a Greyhound.'
