Saxophonist, Producer, Author, Speaker
Mark Allen Felton who honed his musical skills playing in clubs in the Los Angeles area while appearing in videos by Ed OG & the Bulldogs and Tony! Toni! Toné!. Felton produced his first solo CD "On The Prowl" in 1994 and went on to share the stage with many artists including: Al Jarreau, Oleta Adams, Patti Labelle, Chaka Khan, Kenny G., Kirk Whalum, Dave Koz, Billy Preston, Marcus Miller, Lalah Hathaway, Jeffrey Osbourne, and many others and has also toured with Ray Parker Jr. (Ghostbuster Fame -who sold over 25 million records) for five years.
Felton credits Kool & The Gang as an early influence. "When I saw their horn section, I knew then I wanted to play an instrument, and not long after that I was introduced to Grover Washington Jr.'s music. That was it for me, I was hooked!" In a world where people are quick to label music, Felton's music can only be put in one category - "Great Music!" "I strive to deliver my best every time I play, that is what is important to me! Doing my best!"
Born in Chicago, IL, he began playing bugle at the tender age of nine and switched to saxophone at age eleven. He was inspired by all types of artists including Earth, Wind and Fire, Kool & The Gang, Grover Washington Jr. and many others. Felton attended Texas Southern University in Houston and currently resides in Los Angeles California.
