MarkJoseph is a singer, songwriter and performer based in Los Angeles. After graduating from Berklee College of Music and moving to LA in 2018, Mark released multiple singles as a solo artist, while also joining Nick Jonas and The Jonas Brothers as a background vocalist for several tours and performances including the GRAMMYs, the Video Music Awards, the American Music Awards, Saturday Night Live, The Ellen Show, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, and more. While the world slowed down in 2020, MarkJoseph focused on his music. He released two singles – “Wouldn’t Mind” and “Pen Down” – and performed when he could, singing background vocals on The Voice and joining The Terrell Show as a guest. In 2021, Mark released two more singles – "Overboard" and "Sip" – and received even more support and praise from key players in the industry. He is planning to release an EP in 2022. While his musical inspirations vary from rock to pop to R&B icons, his life inspiration remains constant – his mom, who lost her battle with cancer in February 2020. “She raised 3 children on her own in America as a Haitian woman without English as her first language. She is superwoman to me whether she is here or not. Her work ethic and will to win is my inspiration. Everything I do is for her.”
