    Mark Bath

      Name: Mark Bath
      Location: Bellevue, WA
      Bio: I'm a singer songwriter with a computer science background. I've been studying music production, music theory, guitar, piano, and vocal performance for the past several years. In high school I played bass guitar in a band with friends (short scale) and eight years of trumpet in band and marching band. I've been building out my home studio for a few years and learning as much as possible via many YouTube channels, recommended books, and collaborating with several studios and other musicians locally and virtually. Currently I have twenty plus songs which I hope to release over this year as I can complete them.

      Interesting Story:
      We had our house listed for sale and since I didn't know if the house would sell right away and I didn't want to put all music stuff on hold I left most of my studio up and roped off. My wife was not happy about this since she thought people would be upset about the wall treatments in this room which is supposed to be a nursery. Multiple buyers asked if they could keep the studio with the house when buying it 🙂 One who had put in an offer on the house wanted to keep all the bass trapping and wall treatments as the wife was a vocalist and wanted to do some of her own recording. So, it turns out that having a home studio can help your resale value and now my wife is happier if I upgrade my studio with something that makes it look more cool 🙂 I recommend any other home studio folks use my testimony as justification for getting new cool music stuff... cuz hey, upgrading your home studio now seems like remodeling your kitchen or bathrooms in terms of being "worth it".
