Mark Yodice is a composer and instrumentalist, solo guitarist and brain-child of instrumental juggernaut The June Rise. As a soloist, Mark performs his own original stylistically-varied guitar composition, as well as improvisations and interpretations of songs from across the musical spectrum - popular, impressionistic, 20th century classical, South American and more. Mark is a 2017 recipient of the American Composers Forum's Jerome Foundation award. Of the debut record from The June Rise, Long Island Pulse Magazine wrote - His newest collection of original material, …Of Raging Waters, marks the arrival of a serious force in the landscape of contemporary instrumental music with ten gorgeous compositions that move through a myriad of emotional and sonic territories with deft skill, invention and grace.
