Mark Pinkus was born in Vancouver on the anniversary of Beethoven's death.
At the age of 7 Mark began composing music on his yellow acoustic piano. His first composition came to while looking out of his living room window: a black cat was balancing on the window ledge as a rainstorm was approaching. The inspiration for Mark's music comes from love, relationships, travel, moods. spiritual readings, nature mysteries and beauty as well as from the varied experiences he had while living in Europe.
The legendary CBC radio broadcaster Clyde Gilmour described Mark's music as "Beautiful little stories without words." Mark has 10 CD's of his music circulating around the world. His latest album The Peace Messenger is nominated for Album of the Year at the EPR new age music awards at Carnegie Hall where Mark will be performing in October 2015.
