"Now that I'm listening to your guitar, I cannot envision anyone else playing this ever. Brother, this is the first of many projects. It's fairly easy to find pro guitarists, but really hard to find someone with the heart in the things of the Lord."

    “Nashville is full of guitarists yet it was difficult to find one that we really felt worked hard to "get" our sound. Mark Lavey was that person for us. On top of being an incredibly talented, creative, and versatile musician, he always has a smile on his face and has the best attitude of anyone I've ever worked with. We are grateful for his enthusiasm, professionalism, work ethic, passion for good music, and friendship. Mark is truly the best!"

    "He's got the biggest ears" regarding Mark's listening skills.

    "I can't tell you how important it is to be prepared in this town (Nashville). I know too many people who would've come into the gig unprepared. Mark has learned the solo (Liza Jane by Vince Gill) note for note. You wanna get a gig in this town? Show how hard you're willing to prepare for your acts."

    "Great guitar playing" after listening to Mark's original blues/jazz studio recording "The Storm Is Just Me".

    Peter Himmelman
    National Recording Artist


    "Mark Lavey is an incredible musician who is well versed in a wide range of musical styles in both studio and live performance. Mark's guitar playing moves effortlessly from hard charging rock and blues to lighter acoustic finger style picking. Add in Mark's songwriting and vocal ability and you've got the best all around musician I've had the pleasure to work with."
