Mark Sandman

With his distinct slide / strum approach and two string bass - the late Mark Sandman helmed alternative “low rockers” Morphine for five remarkable slabs along with various compilations and archival live releases. 

Melding blues, jazz, beat generation, and traditional rock – Sandman was a prolific composer with a baritone croon who also experimented with variations on the traditional bass with one and three string configurations, sometimes incorporating guitar strings and altered tunings.

Mark also guested with several ensembles including Treat Her Right, among others, before his untimely passing.
