“A New York City-based artist and storyteller who sings, plays guitar, and writes great rock and roll songs and shines on his debut full-length album Bodega Flowers, set for release July 29, 2022. “

“If you like excellent rock n’ roll with buckets of passion, melody, and sonic bombast, get you some Duda.”

“Take a simple idea, put your heart and soul into it and then make sure it’s executed with care, attention and passion; sometimes the results can be surprisingly exciting. Month of Sundays has all of those things and more, and its rewards are plain to hear. This may be only rock n’ roll, but I like it.”

Mark discusses life, music, projects, movies and art with cult rock hero and philosopher Gideon Smith.


“Each and every one of the six cuts provides us with real rock music to listen to – not that prefabricated radio top 10 pop fluff we always seem to get…This EP is the most perfect example of a man still in love with his chosen craft.”


“Classy rock ‘n’ roll with a little punk thrown in, what’s not to love?”


“On this disc there’s none better than the Ramones meets New York Dolls ecstasy of “Murder on Delancey” that is one catchy homage to homicide. Sunday never sounded so good.”

“With that obvious love of pure rock n’ roll in his blood, mixed with unusual lyrical content, creating a captivating combination that is also a whole lot of fun.”

“This six track album has such great songs…is very well recorded, performed, and produced.”


“The album begins with the raw, punk-like energy of “Month of Sundays,” as he makes a great first impression with this up-tempo rocker”


“The half dozen tracks are well written and played with the opening “Month of Sundays” getting things underway in fine fettle.”

“Besides being the Real Deal… Mark is Fucking Bass-Ass”

“The album sounds like a celebration…It sounds like they had a lot of fun making it and that is contagious.”

“Duda would shine at full album length and be better off on a larger label. 12 out of 15”

“Für sein neues Album “Month Of Sundays”, erschienen sowohl die Rhythmusabteilung Thommy Price und Kenny Aaronson (Joan Jett & The Blackhearts, Billy Idol) als auch der Gitarrist Jimi K. Bones (u. a. Blondie) im Studio, um die Scheibe einzuzimmern.”

“A handful of magic dust to celebrate off-duty pastime for a Big Apple denizen who likes his night on the town.”
