Mark Hegan is an Alternative singer/songwriter hailing from the seaside town of Bangor, Northern Ireland. With previous musical endeavours garnering the artist airtime on BBC Radio 2 and BBC Radio 1 Introducing, Mark promises to pack a punch when it comes to performing songs filled with rousing lyrics and soaring melodies fit for stadium sing-alongs. Now currently based in London, Mark’s future looks bright with the release of his debut single, “Skyward” in August 2019.
I began writing “Skyward” shortly before I moved to London from my town in Ireland late last year. In that transitional period, I felt like my identity was slipping away and my sense of control was threatened, which is a truly terrifying realisation, particularly for a writer. Fear became sadness, and sadness became anger at myself and my environment, and from there the lyrics just fell onto paper.
