Mark Holden made his name in the mid-1970s as the good-looking carnation-carrying pop star who sang hits like ‘Never Gonna Fall in Love Again’ and ‘Last Romance’. Mark was signed by EMI Australia, for whom he went on to record three albums. In the 198Os he relocated to Los Angeles’ Laurel Canyon where he became much in demand as a songwriter, penning the Temptation’s Top Ten hit ‘Lady Soul’ and a #1 dance hit with Kathy Sledge. Cover recordings of his songs were made by artists as varied as Belinda Carlisle, Steve Jones of The Sex Pistols, Jose Feliciano, Fleetwood Mac, David Hasselhoff and Brandford Marsalis. He has also produced and managed artists both in the U.S. and Australia including Milla Jovovich, Joel Turner, and Vanessa Amrosi. His songs continue to be recorded by artists such as Delta Goodrem and Sophie Monk. He is also well known to Australian audiences for his time as a judge on Australian Idol and his many media appearances. These include radio, Celebrity Come Dine with ME with Red Symons and Dancing with Stars, where his character Bobo the Clown created a media storm. He continues to explore his family’s rich musical and performance traditions in The Holden Brothers Travelling Circus. At the end of 2009, Mark achieved a long-term ambition when he graduated from his law degree and was admitted to the Bar.   More at:   www.
