My name is Mark Ellis. I was born in South Florida where I grew up and began playing the drums at the age of 11. My major influences came from watching bands like Santana, Earth Wind & Fire, Rush, Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, Black Sabbath, etc. I studied for many years with a couple of teachers focusing on rock and metal mainly but slowly bringing in different elements of jazz, reggae, blues, and progressive rock to my playing. After I graduated from high school, I joined a band by the name of Seasons Lost and released an album “After the Storm” in 2009. Since then I have been playing in many bands of different genres and picking up other instruments such as guitar and piano. I will continue to write and play music as it is my favorite thing to do.
