Composer/lyricist Mark Swanson is a native Georgian influenced greatly by a close musical family. His father was a Southern Baptist Minister of Music, his mother “a laser soprano voice” in the church choir, and both sets of grandparents filled their homes with sound including gospel, bluegrass, and Appalachian. Despite this, his first passion was the Beatles and though he was “too high strung” to concentrate on early piano lessons, the British band inspired him to begin teaching himself their music on piano and guitar.
