“Welcome to the Press Kit of U.K Gospel Saxophonist Mark Bunney”

Mark Bunney's journey with the saxophone began at aged 15 at his local church in Leicester, England where he developed his passion for using music to praise God and minster to others. Mark then went on to graduate from Berklee College of Music, Boston, Massachusetts and is now a professional musician, recording artist, educator, and entrepreneur who enjoys touring internationally whilst assisting others in learning to play the saxophone.

He has shared the stage, recorded, or supported many of the industry's top artists such as Hezikiah Walker, Take 6, Jonathan Butler, Donnie McClurkin, Byron Cage, Shelea, John Stoddart, Lynn Fiddmont, amongst others. Mark's ministry has carried him to performance venues around the world and he has toured extensively throughout the U.K, USA, Europe, South America, South Africa and the Caribbean.

Amongst all of Mark’s accomplishments, Mark considers one of his greatest achievements the milestone of recently celebrating 15 years of marriage to his lovely wife and life partner, Ladonna Kezia!

Mark loves to praise God throught music, be a blessing to others, and inspire people to use their gifts and talents to do the same. He attributes his past, present, and future successes to his Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ and considers himself a living testimony of Philippians 4.13 "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me".

Mark possess an extraordinary gift to connect diversity and bring a sense of unity through his music, his presentations and his personality. Because of my personal influence as a minister throughout the U.S. I have already spoken with many pastors and congregations who are hoping that they too will be able to secure Mark Bunney to come to their cities in the near future and have the same experience we have had during his visits to Parkway Life Church.

Mark Bunney, like many of today’s dedicated young musicians, possess a highly developed technical command of his instrument. But what separates him from the others is ability to communicate with the audience. What sets Mark apart is “soul’. He plays with an emotional drive that moves the listener. Look out for Mark Bunney. He is a musical force to be reckoned with.”

During my twenty plus years at Oakwood I have on several occasions experienced Mr Bunney’s level of musical expertise in performance and teaching of the saxophone. He has achieved a level of expertise that is not easily acquired which speaks of his hard work and diligence in honouring his craft throughout his life. Mark’s unique contributions to the field of Gospel-Jazz are well noted internationally. I have recommended him to other learning institutions and churches.

Music is a wholistic celebration of spirituality! Mark's gospel saxophone is not just for entertainment, but helps to enter into a worship experience. The music allows you to express your pain and suffering before God - as I have experienced at my wife's, as well as at my mother in law's funeral. But it also lifts you up before the throne of God in joy and exultation - as I can testify, having hosted a number of concerts for Mark in Germany. It's liberating, energizing and definitely very inspiring!

Our church is tremendously blessed with a plethora of excellent music. Whether it’s vocal, group or instrumentals our worship service is dynamic and reverberating. We were content until Mark Bunney entered with his saxophone. His proficiency, dexterity and eclectic musical repertoire electrified our congregation, stirred our hearts and soothed our souls each time he ministered. I guarantee you will share my sentiments when you welcome him to your church, attend his concerts or purchase his music. Beyond that, you like me and countless others who have been bathed in his music will be richly blessed.

I first met Mark Bunney in 2017, he participated in our Featured Artist Series where he engaged in a number of performances as well as workshops and individual lessons for the saxophone and flute. During this time he provided mentorship and inspiration to our music student population at the University. A humble, honest, and hard-working individual, as a professional musician and educator he exhibits standards of excellence and dedication that are second to none.

In 2009 while pastoring in Reno Nevada, I invited Mark to perform at my church and other local churches in the area. All of us who heard Mark were very impressed with his diverse talents as a saxophonist and his unique eclectic style. The people’s response to his amazing gift and musical capabilities endeared Mark to them in such a way that they desired him to return. I have since then had the pleasure to invite Mark to numerous engagement at church and conference level, including a two week trip to South Africa, and he has become a close friend.

I have seen many gifted and exceptionally talented musicians in my time as a minister and music professional myself, but Mark Bunney is one such person who rises above many! Mark is also a unique educator who has used his innovative teaching methods to assist others at our church.

I’ve known Mark for over a decade and he has proven to be a man of integrity with values and morals consistent with our faith. Mark is a phenomenal inspirational (Christian) Gospel/Jazz artist, with not only the ability to perform, but to also teach. He is a most skilful saxophonist who has put together a system of learning that is most beneficial (saxmastery.com). During my time, as a friend to Mr. Bunney, I have watched him rise to the top of his field of endeavor.

God has gifted Mark Bunney abundantly to use his saxophone to His Glory and for the inspiration of all. The humility and professionalism with which he communicates and interacts with others where he ministers are rare gems. His unbridled love and loyalty for our Lord Jesus Christ are exemplified authentically and unapologetically.
