Sense Of Place Minneapolis: John Mark Nelson

John Mark Nelson.

John Mark Nelson.

John Mark Nelson released his first album independently while he was still a junior in high school. Local radio, including The Current, embraced his song "Reminisce" — an encouraging start for a musician who'd already found the sound he wanted in his head. Nelson's new album, I'm Not Afraid, is his fourth, and his first since signing with GRNDWIRE Records. Nelson has thrived in the supportive Twin Cities music scene, and is ready for a wider audience.
