Welcome to my website!

My name is Mark Hill (AKA Fatt Max), a London lad who has been making noise in New Zealand since 1998.

Blues music has been my influence for as long as I can remember. To me it is more than a genre or a category, it’s a way of life, an expression of all emotions no matter what the circumstances. Blues music in itself holds the key to what makes me tick.

I am also inspired by the music and vibe of New Orleans, my adopted spiritual home.

I play a mixture of conventional electric and acoustic guitars as well as home made guitars. There is nothing sweeter than writing a song on an instrument made from odds and ends, new music from recycled material.

Thanks for swinging by, I hope you enjoy the site

Go in peace and love the blues
