Each episode of Cookin’ with Bacon I feature a HOT artist of the week. This week I shine the spotlight on Mark Baxter:
R&B singer Mark Baxter was born in Philadelphia, Pa and raised in Mt. Airy. Raised in a Christian family, his parents sang gospel music. Mark grew up listening to Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes, Earth, Wind & Fire, Heatwave and L.T.D. He began his career playing guitar in a band called “Black Gold”. It was after seeing Teddy Pendergrass perform live back in the 1980’s, that he gave up the guitar and began his career as a vocalist. Mark Baxter has performed all over the tri-state area, performed at many Atlantic City casinos and has opened up for artists such as The Temptations, Stylistics, Donnell Jones, War, Chi-Lites, Roy Ayers and many more.
Currently Mark Baxter is working on the release of his first R&B album with assistance from Leon Huff and David Steel among other producers.
