Mark Jungers is one of those great storytellers who has found a way to blend meaningful lyrics and boot-stomping Texas music. With his masterfully crafted songs, he will deliver the goods for the Rear Window audience. Come and get to know Mark up close and personal ... we look forward to seeing you there.
In life and in art, Mark Jungers (pronounced Youngers) is a reality dealer. A trailblazing Americana singer, songwriter and musician with By God sod busting roots, Jungers lays out the perils, the pitfalls and the pleasures of life in equal measure. And, accompanied by a like-minded music-making crew, Jungers uses a mixture of country, folk, rock and more to get that reality across with soul, conviction and a solid backbeat.Jim Beal, Jr. Freelance music journalist KSYM- Third Coast Music Network DJ
On his 7th release, "I’ll See You Again," Mark Jungers spins tales of fate, misconception, conditional and unconditional love; and murder. With the gray-colored populist sentiments of Woody Guthrie to the black as night swings of Cohen, the songs are strong and reminiscent of Petty, Young, or Cash (Unchained). Life is the fallout of good and bad decisions. Would things be different if you hadn’t moved away? Did you make the right choice? Such are the matter-of-fact questions raised in "I Don’t Want To Live There." The song, "Johnson Farm," recounts a desolate family who lives down a small country road, just past a cemetery. The youngest daughter dies in a gun accident, driving the father over that emotional cliff, where he takes the lives of the rest of the family and then, himself.
On being the hardworking underdog, Mark relates the everyday trappings that the working class lives with in "Working Like a Dog." He meets his audience head to head here, because so many feel the constant looming storm of working paycheck to paycheck, doing jobs nobody wants. As with all of Mark’s CDs, there is no sameness to the tracks on this latest album, but they all reflect a common life thread that connects, and Jungers accomplishes this with an instantly appealing roots music approach.
Mark Jungers' songs are full of finely developed characters, whose beautiful desparation shine through the authenticity of Jungers' voice. Texan, via Minnesota, Jungers has honed his rock tinged country songs for the last 20 or so years.
... Songs like, "I Don't Want To Live There" and "Do You Still Care" are perfect examples why more folks should be aware of Mark Jungers. Adam Dawson thebrokenjukebox.com

THANK YOU for supporting the Rear Window venue and providing a place for the artists, who ARE the music, a place to play! Without your continued support, it could not happen!

If you really love music, and find yourself sometimes wishing you had some friends who loved it even half as much as you, then you have come to the right place. The Rear Window audience is comprised, primarily, of music lovers who really enjoy being able to hear the performers play their music without the usual noise that keeps you from being able to hear much of the songs. We present a wide variety of music styles or genres, and artists who write and perform their own music.
Most of the music is considered "Americana" which really means, country, alternate rock, rockabilly, rhythm & blues, bluegrass, jazz, funk, folk, and just about anything else you can imagine. Because music has largely to do with personal taste, you will like some of our shows better than others, but we guarantee that you will always be glad you came.
You can probably imagine the vast number of singer-songwriters and performers who pitch their music to record companies each and every day. Yet, a record company typically has only one or two people who choose the artists they will push to stardom. So, as you can see, it is very likely that record companies pass up some of the best music you will Never Hear. That means some of the Best Music never hits the radio or television, because it doesn't get the very costly promotions that record companies invest in "Their Choices."
At the Rear Window Listening Room, you will hear some of the best music you have ever heard, performed by artists who are extremely talented and have devoted their lives to creating and playing music. We also have some artists who are either on the verge of making it big or have already started down that road and still take time to come by the Rear Window. Susan Gibson has written a single that sold 14 million copies (that's a lot), and Sean Ashby, coming in April, has four multi-platinum records to his credit. Richard Smith, coming June 9th, is hailed as the one of the World's Greatest finger-picking guitarists, ever; and Actor & singer-songwriter Ronny Cox (the guitar player at the beginning of the movie "Deliverance") comes to the Rear Window regularly. So, plan to come to the Rear Window Listening Room and join us for some fabulous music and overall excellent entertainment.
