UK based Christian indie label 7Core Music have announced that internationally recognised artist Mark Tedder has joined them. Inspired by the Psalms of the Bible and the Country Music he grew up with, Mark has recorded a collection of songs entitled 'Psalms, Sonnets and Meditations'. The first single 'Like Mercy' taken from Psalm 40 is out on October 4th.
Mark has been making music most of his life. From those early years in Arkansas in the southern United States as a 5 year old, banging on the drums, music has always played an important role for him. Looking back in the rear view mirror, Mark and his wife, Carrie have been planet-hopping most of their lives from the age of 20. They started an international worship-equipping mission called Worshiplanet, which saw them, travel to over 40 nations training worship leaders and worship teams. They’ve lived in the UK, Russia, Czech Republic and China. Their music has opened doors for them in North Korea, Tibet, Mongolia and throughout Northern Africa, Asia and the European Continent. Mark & Carrie have two sons and 7 grandchildren. These days they grow coffee on their farm on the Big Island of Hawaii and continue to write songs and travel the world.
7Core Music’s Trevor Michael says "I first met Mark and his wife Carrie in 2003. We’ve been friends ever since and have worked on countless projects together, one of many highlights being his live in Beijing album ‘The Door’ in 2008. Mark is not only a great friend, worship leader and songwriter, he also has one of my most favourite voices to record ever and so we’re delighted to have him on our 7Core Music label."
