Americana Highways presents this premiere of Mark Wilkinson’s song “Earthquake,” from his forthcoming album. It was produced by Peter Holz (Gang of Youths, Peking Duk, Vance Joy), and mixed by Logan Matheny (Sam Hunt, Judah & the Lion). “Earthquake” was written by Mark.
The song is performed by Wilkinson solo on piano and vocals. Sometimes you catch a voice that makes your heart just soar, and Mark Wilkinson has one of those voices. So emotive, so moving. What happens when we reach the borderline? Will things be different on the other side. Listen and dream. There is also a video of him performing the song live, just beneath the song link.
“Earthquake” is about navigating through uncharted territory and embracing the uncertainty that comes with it. Becoming a father for the first time brought about a lot of emotion. It made me reflect on life balance and this song is a melting pot of all those thoughts and feelings. — Mark Wilkinson
