JOIN MARK MALLMAN FOR A MUSICAL CELEBRATION OF PEACE AND LOVE. THIS MUST-SEE ANNUAL SHOW HIGHLIGHTS SECULAR CLASSICS FROM JOHN LENNON TO NAT KING COLE AS WELL AS SPECIAL GUESTS AND STORIES TO WARM YOUR HEART THIS HOLIDAY SEASON!
Mark Mallman’s new album, Happiness is a companion and reflection on his uplifting and poetic book, “The Happiness Playlist.” In the book’s foreword, famed rock critic and popular culture examiner Chuck Klosterman describes Mark Mallman as “legitimately original, exclusively motivated by a desire to conquer the strange obstructions he builds inside his mind.”
True to form, his complex meditation on happiness nods to fellow Minneapolitans who have amassed international reach. Prince, The Hold Steady, Lizzo, and Hüsker Dü are all enthusiastically represented in the DNA of Mallman’s latest work. Happiness has something for everyone — and he is happy about it.
Mallman’s stage persona precedes him, but stepping back one sees a stunning body of recorded work. His expansive catalog of infinitely emotional and masterfully orchestrated songs has been blasted over airwaves worldwide from MTV to NPR. USA Today, Wired, NME have all sung his praises. His ninth full-length album comes fresh off the heels of a widely-adored memoir on happy music as medicine against grief and anxiety.
