Mark Roberts was born into a musical family in Georgetown, and grew up with a strong passion for Rock & Roll, Blues, and Motown music, all of which inspired him to be the singer that he is today.
Over the years, Mark has been featured on lead vocals in many bands including Spanky's Gang, Matrix, Alter Ego, The Next, and Wilmington,N.C.-based Heart and Soul. As part of Heart & Soul Roberts won the CBMA for Best New Artist in 2000 and was nominated for Best Male Vocalist in 2003 just before his break from the band.
He soon found a window of opportunity with a well-known musician whom was already established in the Beach music market to become Mark Roberts & Breeze. This collaboration went on to claim many CBMAs such as Group of the Year, Song of the Year, Male Vocalist, and Entertainer of the Year among others.
In recent years Roberts has continued his solo work and collaborated with many musicians from across the Southeast.
