Mark Pearson-singer, songwriter, storyteller

As someone who has faith in the power of stories and songs – who believes in the might, magic, and mystery of loving and being loved – and who trusts that together songs sung, stories told, and love shared can lead us home – I’d like to welcome you to “Songs and Stories from Home.” 

In May of 2017 at Benaroya Hall in front of a lifetime of family and friends the final campfire for “One of Those Times in a Life” was lit. That evening represented the culmination of a six-year exploration of memory and discovery, of taking a lifetime of stories and telling the story of a lifetime, while using a lifetime of songs to create the soundtrack of that journey. Those campfires remain lit. You can find a map to them simply by clicking “One of Those Times in a Life.”  

When I stepped off the stage that night I understood – believed - on some deep and profound level I had arrived “home.” It is with that faith that I will be exploring, discovering, creating, and sharing “Songs and Stories from Home.” You are invited and I would be delighted if you came along.

Campfire Podcast: One Dying Day
My cousin Jane was diagnosed with breast cancer in the fall of 1992. At first she and I talked about cancer simply as a bump in the road. I promised her I would send her a postcard every Friday until she was cancer free. Some 70 Fridays – 70 postcards later – she was gone.

The Power of Stories

Not long after the election of 2016 I made a promise to myself, to my art and craft, that I would not let the constant shameless lies and fear mongering that have infected the national narrative affect what I was doing – hoped to do - as a singer, songwriter, and storyteller.

Fears Don't Scare Me Like They Used To

For a long time I wanted to believe that if I found and faced and freed my fears they would no longer scare me. I learned the best I could do was go from living in fear to living with my fears. It’s enough.
