Mark McDowell

Drums & BGVs

markMark’s interest in drums began at an early age. Growing up in Nigeria, West Africa, Mark was exposed to rhythms and intricacies he would have never found anywhere else. Getting his first kit at the age of 8, drumming became his new-found passion that would not only shape his future, but affect a lot of people along the way.

Since 1992 Mark had played on countless albums and has performed around the world supporting many different artists and bands before co-founding Death & Desire in 2006. Mark’s drive to excel in his craft and his heart to be a positive influence on everyone he crossed paths with gave him the vision to start a band that would allow the musical exploration, and song writing craftsmanship that could meld those two things together.
