In 1989 he released his 1st solo album, "Happy Judgment Day", and through the 90's he made a series of heralded discs including 1999’s "Skeleton Faith", which won Best Album and Best Artist awards, as well as the Best Single award for “White Trash Town”, in the annual, fan driven Las Vegas City Life music poll.All the while he played to increasingly larger audiences at local venues like the Hard Rock Hotel and the House Of Blues, where he opened for Chris Isaak, Al Green and Peter Frampton, among others.His music is unique and original, yet wide in its appeal.His band is but a trio, but is as sonically powerful as any twice its size.His influences and famous fans include icons dating to the 60's (such as Rock'N'Roll Hall Of Fame-member David Crosby), and those who are among today’s most acclaimed artists (such as Tim Reynolds of Dave Matthews Band).Eaton might be a small-town guy at the core, but his music knows no borders.The band has been likened to such vaunted trios as Cream, Rush and Police, with Eaton’s clear and inviting voice and ever-dazzling guitar work pacing the band. Eaton borrows from traditional rock, funk, reggae, flamenco, classical, jazz and folk, has toured extensively with Tim Reynolds.
Inspired by a mix of music brought into his home by his mother and older siblings, which ran from Muddy Waters to the Rolling Stones to the Doors to Neil Diamond, he started a garage band with his brother Rick as a teenager.All the while, Huff’s voice and guitar serve as the album’s compass.Although most of the songs negotiate the turns of life’s emotional landscape, “Big City Down” is an ode to his adopted hometown, Nashville, TN.“I think everything happens in a great way for me”, he says. Huff “There are 2 kinds of singers, the ones you believe and the ones you don’t”, observes Mark Huff. You can hear the ring of honesty throughout Huff’s 9th solo release, "Stars For Eyes", as he negotiates the highs and lows of love and life in its 11 songs.But like real life, there’s nothing simple about the characters that populate his tunes or their emotions.He also launched his busy international touring career, and has performed in arenas as an opener for Bob Dylan and Willie Nelson.
