Interview with Mark Neuenschwander

September 14, 2010

Mark Neuenschwander is an extremely talented, very well respected, successful working musician. Ironically he never expected to live a life dedicated to music. It seemed to sneak up on him. Self effacing, Mark says over and over that he wasn’t born to do this. Continually told how smart he was, Mark believed he had to be an engineer or a physicist or a combination of both, but music just kept getting in the way. Mark’s is the story of a man who kept trying to be what they told him he should be, but who kept bumping his head against what he actually is – until finally realizing and allowing himself to embrace what he is, and enjoy the “tremendous” joy of doing what he loves to do and getting paid for it.
