Musician in Berlin, Deutschland
Songwriter & string bassist Mark Roman has been working as a musician for over fifteen years. Since moving to Germany from New York City in 2011, he's been an active part of the Berlin cultural scene. As a bandleader, he features the string bass as a solo instrument in the KBCollective.
He's added his own handwriting to the American Songbook with original music & lyrics reflecting a richly diverse musical heritage: a mix of oldtime, motown, blues, swing, latin, church & chamber music shaped his tri-cultural upbringing in Woodstock, New York.
Recent work as a sideman has included appearances with J.Z. James & The Southsiders, Lord Mouse & The Kalypso Katz, Rudi Protrudi & The Ladykillers and the oldtime string band The Bear City Ramblers.
With a body of creative endeavors in New York & Berlin including concert appearances, collaborative dance presentations and world music projects, his work has demonstrated a steadfast commitment to the string bass & its fundamental role in over a century of popular song.
