The Legend That Is Mark Gormley


King of the Power Stance

This is Mark Gormley. His angelic voice can sooth any small child to sleep. His moustache game is to be admired by all. He is most famous for his epic power stance, you really do have to see it to believe it. This is his most iconic song, without you;

Not much is known about Mark

He grew up in Pensacola, Florida. He learnt to play the guitar as a teenager and wrote a number of original compositions in the mid-1970s. He enlisted in the Marines and was stationed in Scotland where he recorded a demo for his songs, but he was unable to gain a recording contract on his return to the USA. In 1986, Gormley entered the music studio once again recording two more songs. He later teamed up with The Uncharted Zone to create these wacky music videos.

The greatest music in the land

Mark Gormley inspired bored internet weirdos with his unusual stage presence. Many have tried to replicate his music videos, and he himself has said: "The more the better". I personally feel like they fail to do him justice.

A Quaint Hero

He is an everyday man who never asked to become an internet sensation. His videos have been viewed and adored by millions worldwide. He only made music because he enjoyed it, and that is probably the main reason people love him.

Listen to it All

It would be impossible for me to choose which is my favourite song by him. I highly recommend listening to them all equally. He is one of the few music artists that only get better the more you listen to him. I find his music is healing and speaks to me like nothing else.

A Glimpse at the Real Gormley

The Uncharted Zone had never seen so much success on their independent music studio and youtube channel. They decided to give Mark a "Youzie Award" in 2010 at "The Next UZ Star" Auditions. Here in this clip, we get to see a glimpse of what Mark is like behind closed doors.

The Return

After a boatload of demand and many years of anticipation the legend returned in 2017 with a final song "Together". Mark does not do the power stance anymore since it became too powerful for him to use safely. We all appreciate the moments shared with him.

If you didn't like it you might as well go cut off your ears because no music could ever please you.

      Lmao, drop-dead seriously, Mark Gormley is very healing to watch. He can cheer me up any day. He is a Christian and a very real man. Over this highly produced music, I would rather take the earnest Mark Gormley. To each their own though
