With a gift for writing melodies, Mark Lorenzo led the overlooked band, Lorenzo. Like similar rock artists Nickelback, Seether, Daughtry and Theory of a Deadman, Lorenzo’s sound was characterized by great songs and high-energy guitars.
Lorenzo released two albums, Love Shape Bruise and Ignition. Over the span of their recording career, the band drew large audiences in the midwest.
In Mark’s new chapter, he formed two country rock acts, Southbound 75 and Havala. The Tampa-based outfits blend the best of country with rock and blues.
Southbound 75 have performed live throughout Florida and parts of the midwest and attracted audiences along the way. Last year, the band recorded with Nashville producer, Bill McDermott (Tim McGraw, Brad Paisley, George Strait), resulting in what will be the band’s debut, Tales From The Black Swamp. The band also signed to McDermott’s Roxy Entertainment Group. The first video to the first single, “Not Ready to Say I’m Sorry Yet,” is out now.
