PART OF "MADCITY SESSIONS" IN THE OVERTURE HALL LOBBY
Mark Croft, an award-winning singer/songwriter from Madison, WI, is one of the most distinguished musicians to ignite the Acoustic Pop/Roots scene in recent years. Isthmus Magazine writes, "Croft is NOT just another guy with a guitar in the corner of a coffeehouse," and his list of accomplishments this to be true. Croft finished 1st in the Midwest Song Contest and in the Inuagural American Idol Underground Rock Contest, was voted Favorite Singer/Songwriter by Isthmus Magazine's Reader's Poll, has won 15 MAMA Awards, and plays more than 120 live shows around the country each year.
Taking inspiration from a variety of musical styles, Croft has blended his own mix of roots, pop, and Americana song stylings. A seasoned performer, Croft has been serving up exciting and emotional performances to unsuspecting audiences throughout the nation, and his ability to navigate his six-string guitar with superiority -- wrapping frantic acoustic riffs around unforgettable melodies -- has garnered him praise from press outlets, industry professionals, club owners, and fans alike.
