Mark Handley Re-Releases Christmas Single 'Chirstmas at Poundland'





Singer/Songwriter Mark Handley is happy to embrace all styles of music, though Rock, Reggae, Folk, Country, Blues etc. are certainly amongst his favourites! He has a natural “feel” for a rhythm and the uncanny ability to find and write a song in any situation or on any subject. These are “real” songs with great lyrics and hooks that will have you singing along by the second chorus.... as well as getting your toes a tappin! (of course!)

Whether he's performing solo or with his band “The Bone Idols”, playing a pub, club, festival, concert hall or just busking on the high street it hardly it seems to matter to Mark, he'll always put everything into his performance, he knows how to entertain an audience and his energy and passion are sure to leave an impression on all those who have seen and heard him play.

Quite how Mark’s music remains so unknown to the World is a mystery. He is certainly a Troubadour, a true Artist putting his heart, soul and every penny he has ever made back into his music producing many fine Albums available online, via his website and wherever he is playing live. His following maybe small but the word is spreading and those who do check out his music usually come back for more.

“You know you've been Scrooged” sings Mark Handley here on what might well be his very own “Christmas Carol”... “it's the birth of our Lord at the price you can afford” and indeed, at times it does sound like he's brought the Salvation Army band and the cast from Oliver along with him to help us celebrate.

Somehow he manages to write a happy song about “making the best of it” in a festive season which he acknowledges is “gonna be on the cheap”... And you know it's a sign of the times when even Santa Claus himself has switched from his regular North Pole Factory in favour of a alternative supplier.... “He said times are tough and it's cheaper to buy 'em here so it's Christmas at Pound£and this year”... Have a good one y'all... Ho! Ho! Ho!!
