The Dynamic Duo Michael Hartman and the Appendages and Mark Hoevet

Truly a man with a sense of humor, yes when you visit his ReverbnationProfile ya get this Bio; “congratulations!! You’re the 100,000th person to visit this site!! You’ve won a zircon encrusted spatula!!!! simply click here, answer a few hundred simple questions, give me all of your personal information i.e. bank account number, social security number, all credit card information including routing numbers, and mother's maiden name. As soon as I receive that information, the spatula will be headed straight to your door!!” 

Mike was my very first Friend at Reverbnation and he is a hoot! His Music isn’t bad either, his band is actually himself hence... Michael Hartman AND the Appendages as he plays all of the instruments himself… and he sings too! His newest Album is also available at his Reverbnation Store.

Mike also collaborates with an extremely talented young gentleman Mark Hoevet who came on board with Devotions Recording in our first year. Now Mark’s Bio makes a bit more sense here. Mark is a Musician\songwriter from Central Nebraska. Many of Mark’s influences, leans towards the electronic Pop\rock genre without losing the versatility of different sounding material. A variety of his songs have a different influence and sound... After many years of traveling and playing in many different style bands, he’s content with writing and recording at his home studio.

Mark has a broad range of music interests and heroes. He likes anything done well, and appreciates many different artists and bands and their talent. Mark is not zeroed in on listening or writing one type of music and is very versatile. Everything you hear is done by Mark on his Korg Triton 76 and Yamaha MO8 keyboards and recorded in his 32trk basement studio, a pretty basic set up that in my opinion yields amazing work. I was so amped when I got to do a Video for these guys! So here it is…
