Mark Davyd
After studying Sound Engineering at college in the early 80s, Mark embarked on a career in the music industry, first as a member of various moderately successful bands, then as a for-hire session player.
By the late 80s, he was trading life on the road for more studio and venue orientated pursuits, resulting in the creation in 1993 of Tunbridge Wells Forum, the South East’s leading venue for rising touring acts. Alongside its impressive roster of live shows, which includes acts such as Coldplay, Oasis, Libertines, and Green Day, Mark and his partners at The Forum encouraged the development of the venue as a community arts centre, hosting a programme of comedy, drama, film and poetry with supporting projects for young people to encourage their participation through interactive workshops. Shortly after successfully securing Arts Council England support to develop this programme, Mark was appointed Project director for Rhythmix, and has been steering the organisation since 2000. In 2003 he created Outstanding Records and Artist Management, a successful production house company which has to date released 25 albums and manages 11 artists throughout the world. Outstanding has increasingly focused on Latin Alternative artists, and has led the way in developing new Latin music, placing music into films, TV and games, such as Nick and Norah, Beverley Hills Chihuahua, Ugly Betty, Entourage and FIFA 07/08/09.
