Mark Whitt was born and raised in a small town in Southern Ohio. He was introduced to bluegrass, Country and Gospel by his parents, who were both born and raised in Eastern Kentucky. As a young child, he recounts, "my sisters and I would sing with our parents in the car on the way home from a second job that they took on in the evenings." Mark fondly remembers waking up each morning to the sound of bluegrass classics on the record player. They would often travel back to Eastern Kentucky for family gatherings and during this time Mark's love for the music grew. He eventually picked up the mandolin and then the guitar. He would sit for hours and play and sing with his Dad and Uncle.
Mark currently heads up Mark Whitt and The True Bluegrass Band as the lead signer and guitar player. They are a regional band, who focus on playing traditional bluegrass and gospel.
In addition to performing, Mark is dedicated to writing new material geared in the traditional style. His new Project, includes two of his originals, "Over You" and "I heard Sweet Music Playing.
Mark makes home in Ohio with his wife Mariann and their son.
