Fire Records are proud to announce the signing of celebrated American singer-songwriter MARK MULCAHY for his eagerly anticipated forthcoming album, entitled "Dear Mark J.

Mulcahy, I Love You.", which will be his first studio release since 2005's critically acclaimed "In Pursuit Of Your Happiness".

Armed with his trusty Epiphone and his wonderfully emotive vocals, MARK MULCAHY recorded the new album in Northampton, Massachusetts with Henning Ohlenbusch.

The album was mixed by Grammy-winning producer Paul Q. Kolderie, who has made some of the most important records of the past two decades by artists including RADIOHEAD, THE PIXIES, HOLE, MORPHINE, UNCLE TUPELO, WARREN ZEVON and DINOSAUR JR.

The record was mastered by Mark's longtime collaborator Myles Mangino. MARK MULCAHY is the former singer of MIRACLE LEGION, an American rock band of the late 80s, early 90s who were signed to Rough Trade.

Following the demise of the band, Mark's solo career began with "Fathering", an album that received universal praise including "Album Of The Month" in Uncut and "Album Of The Week" in The Guardian and featured the track "Hey Self Defeater" which was featured in Nick Hornby's book "31 Songs".

From there followed albums "Smilesunset" and "In Pursuit Of Your Happiness", several tours of the UK and Europe, countless radio sessions and huge critical acclaim for both his songwriting prowess and his remarkable voice.

In 2008 he put everything on hold to look after his children following the tragic death of his wife.

To assist him through these troubled times many of his long-time fans in the music industry banded together to record an album of his songs as a tribute to his wife and the result was 2009's "Ciao My Shining Star", featuring the likes of MICHAEL STIPE, THOM YORKE, FRANK BLACK, MERCURY REV, DINOSAUR JR and THE NATIONAL.

"Mark Mulcahy's truly extraordinary voice infuses these subtly crafted, jauntily off-kilter, mostly self-played songs with a spirit simultaneously life-affirming and ever so slightly heart-tearing." - METRO "a singer songwriter to be filed alongside Tim Buckley, Neil Young or Jackson Browne." - Esquire
