Welcome to Episode 303 of The Artist Connection Podcast! My guest today is music legend Mark Slaughter! I have been a fan of his since the 80’s, so having the chance to speak with him was a real thrill for me. His new solo album “Halfway There” is available now. Three tracks from it are featured throughout this episode, along with a Van Halen cover that he recorded in 2007. After you listen to the interview, be sure to pick up your own copy of the album. I will provide links below. We also talked about his growing up in Las Vegas, the music business, and how important being a songwriter is to his life. For Mark, it all begins with the song. He shares some amazing advice during our conversation. I had so many things that I wanted to ask him about, and he was open to all of my questions. If you reach out to Mark, please let him know that you heard his interview and music on my show. Enjoy!
