About Mick J Clark

Hi, my name is Mick J Clark, I am a singer/songwriter who plays guitar and keyboards. I have written over 50 songs and I have released two albums on The New Atlantic Records label, called ‘Notes One’, and ‘Notes Two’, which were released in May 2014, and January 2015. There are 12 songs on each album, all quite different. One is called ‘Soldier Boy’ it is my Help For Heroes song to all the very brave soldiers, past and present. Hopefully my personality comes through in my songs, fun, emotional, rebellious, amusing and all of them heartfelt.

I also have a Christmas E.P. out called, ‘Mick’s Christmas Mix’, on The New Atlantic Records label, and I also have two songs, published by World Domination Music Ltd on a Christmas Album of twelve songs called ‘The Indie Christmas Album’.

This Autumn 2015 I will be releasing ‘Notes Three’ my rock album.

My albums are on ITUNES, AmazonSpotify , Soundcloud, YouTube and Reverbnation.

I am very pleased to say that my songs are being played on numerous radio stations, Croydon Radio, East Coast Radio, Seagull 1602,  Radio Rock 92.6, Big Venture Radio, Matt Barker Radio, Celtica Radio etc.

In making these albums, I would like to thank my producer Nelson King, (Empty Space Studios), check out Nelson’s web page http://www.nelsonking.net

I play pubs, clubs and also Scream Studios in South Croydon sometimes. Having now made two albums, which I’m pleased to say have been well received, I will be looking to play bigger venues with my material.

 I have also written a book titled ‘Are You Lonesome Tonight?’, (not about Elvis Presley) It is a humorous thriller, which I am pleased to say was well reviewed by Kirkus and also Blue Ink. It is published by Amazon, and also available on E-book. It has also been turned into a screen play.

Okay, here comes the funny, boring, confusing bit about me. At school I acted the clown and got into a lot of scraps until I realised at the end of my education, maybe I should start working hard.  

I left school wanting to be a veterinary surgeon. I was promised trials for Brighton and Hove F.C. as I was playing for The West of Kent, and my school which had just won the league and cup double, I had a bronze medal for dancing, which I got when I was 12yrs old, (because girls went there, and to take the medal I could stay up late Wednesday evenings).

All the time I wanted to be a ‘pop star’. I went without school dinners for 3months, keeping the money which went towards my first guitar, which I would look at every day in the shop window of that 3 months, it was a great guitar, a ‘Futarama Two’, and I got it. I soon found out I didn’t have enough brains to become a vet, I became a bit unruly and stupidly walked away from football at 16, (drink, girls, and mates ended it). But I still had my guitar. I joined bands, wrote songs, did demo discs, tried hard but never made it. I did a summer season at Pontins at Bracklesham Bay, West Sussex, fronting a group called Damien and the Delemers’, we did popular songs and comedy.

 I eventually became an electrician, which gives you a good living, but not the one I wanted.

I did eight years as a DJ for Croydon University Hospital until the radio station closed down in 2012. If you want something enough you keep trying, so, maybe this time, with a bit of luck, “here I go again!”
