Mark Heimermann is one of the most brilliant song-writers, producers and mentors that I’ve had the honor of getting to work with. Producing, writing and touring with artists like Amy Grant, Michael W. Smith, Jaci Velazquez and DC Talk, Mark seems to ,seemingly single-handedly, be responsible for creating the soundtrack of my earlier years while growing up in a home that only allowed listening to 'christian’ music.
Why would someone at the height of their career and success decide to completely change directions and move away from Nashville? Why does Mark feel like being a ‘Jack-of-all-trades’ in music is beneficial? And, above all else, I’ve struggled so hard to find certainty in life and ‘figure’ this whole music thing out. The unknown future in the creative journey can be daunting and intimidating. What can Mark teach me about learning to trust the unknown? This week, Mark welcomes me into his home studio to down over Oktoberfest beers to answer these questions and more.
Recording Location: Mark’s Home Studio, (haha like hell I’m going to post his home on the map. But… It’s somewhere in MN south of the metro)
