Mark Dillon


Mark Dillon is a Calgary based musician, “T.A. Vern’s” is his debut solo album, he wrote, recorded, sang, and preformed all the instruments on “T.A. Vern’s”.

Mark’s music career began in St. John’s Newfoundland in 1995. He has spent the last 16 years playing with the metal band “Gales of Avalon” and producing albums for Alberta based acts like “Pecado”, “22X”, “Misanthropy”, “Moosifix”, and “Netheriel”.

During the pandemic Mark decided to embrace his lifelong love for The Blues and began live streaming a Blues show every Saturday night to entertain family and friends. This led to the writing and recording of his debut “T.A. Vern’s”.

This album is an exciting mix of Blues, Rock, and even a little bit of Country. The songs tell the stories of some eclectic characters, a wild old bootlegger “Whiskey Sam”, a western outlaw “El Rey” an enterprising thief “Psychedelic Super Freak” and even Jesus the devil and a bar fight in the title track “T.A. Vern’s”.

Mark Dillon’s “T.A. Vern’s” is the accumulation of a live long love for the Blues that he wasn’t fully able to express until now. He hopes you enjoy it.
