Mark Tumbull

Grammy-nominated songwriter Mark Turnbull started his performing career at the age of 5 on the Jimmy Durante Show and hasn't looked back. His first album (1968) for Reprise Records "Portrait of the Young Artist" was a Billboard pick, and Turnbull was  listed in F.M. & Fine Arts magazine (along with Randy Newman, Laura Nyro and Bob Dylan) as one of the finest songwriters of the era. His forays into the theater have produced original musicals (his "Tales of Fannie Keenan, Better Known as Dora Hand" represented the United States in the Olympic Theater Festival in the 1984 Olympics); a DramaLogue Award for musical direction (for the musical play "Quilters" which won the national AACT competition and went on to represent the U.S. in an international drama competition in Dundalk Ireland);  his solo show Mark Turnbull and Friends—a One Man Show, produced in both Orange County and Los Angeles, was hailed by the Los Angeles Times as the work of "...a genuine artist ...with nearly two dozen songs, all of them worth hearing, many worth treasuring."  The Times also named the show as "Best One Man Show for 1994."  And, well, so much more...
