Mark A Hunter was born in Darwin Northern Territory in 1955 and has lived in what is commonly known as “The Top End” for most of his life.
Mark comes from a mixed racial background ; his father being of English, German and Scottish descent and his mother was English, Philippine and Australian Aboriginal. Mark’s songs are a reflection of his upbringing and life experience in “The Top End.”
The popular culture, that derived from the multiracial history of the region is expressed in the lyrics and themes of his songs, while the music has a warmth and laid back style of an earlier Darwin. The lyrics will make you smile and the melodies will dance in your mind as you are transported to that place once known as “The Buffalo Country”.
