Mark Sinnis is a New York City music scene veteran. He has been fusing Gothic and Country music since 1998 to create his signature modern "Cemetery & Western" sound, with thought-provoking lyrics.
Mark, whose music spans 22 years, was the co-founder and singer/songwriter of the NYC Punk/Gothic band Apostates for 10 years. In 1998 he started his current band, Ninth House, and is the sole songwriter for the group.
With rich vocals that have been compared to a cross between Johnny Cash and Ian Curtis (Joy Division), Sinnis’ music incorporates Gothic undertones as well as traditional Country music with a contemporary modern edge. “Into An Unhidden Future”, Sinnis' debut album containing 19 tracks, was released in 2008. The album “A Southern Tale” followed in 2009, and received great reviews that recognized Mark’s fusion of Cash-styled Country with Gothic music.
Mark’s D.I.Y. label, 9th Recordings, released all Ninth House’s three full-length CDs and his solo albums. Mark’s third album "The Night’s Last Tomorrow" was released in March 2010 and contains 15 songs. The album continues his Country Gothic influenced journey.
