After returning to The Bluetones to record their ‘A New Athens’ swan song, Mark re-focused his attention on his solo career. In 2013 he recorded ‘A Flash of Darkness’, raising the recording funds via a successful Pledge Music campaign.

The album was then given a general release by Acid Jazz Records the following year, whilst Mark continued to tour both as a solo acoustic artist and with an ever changing line up behind him. The various members of The Magical Sex Band.

In the summer of 2015 Mark recorded and released ‘The Taste of Mark Morriss’ for Acid Jazz. Intended as a companion to ‘A Flash of Darkness’, the album comprised a collection of cover versions of songs that had informed the writing of its predecessor.

At the same time as producing and touring his own solo material, Mark has produced Theme and Chapter music for the audio versions of David Walliams’ successful series of children’s books, from ‘The Boy in the Dress’ right through to his latest, ‘The Midnight Gang’, all released on Harper Collins.
