Mark is a true ambassador of the islands, sharing the sprit of Aloha through his music. With a melodic blend of vocalistic range and pure tone, this singer-songwriter has captured the attention of music lovers of all ages. Mark performs and transforms a mix of genres, ranging from Acoustic Soul, Hawaiian and Contemporary Hawaiian, Country, Soft Rock, Reggae, and Easy Listening.
Born and raised on the Big Island of Hawai'i, Mark's musical journey began at an early age of 5, when his parents, Mark and Renee Saito (two of the great influences in his life) realized that Mark's talent and love for song was more than just a passing interest, and he was soon performing at family parties and community events alongside his Mother and Father. He is a proud alumni of Honoka'a High School, and strong supporter of the Honoka'a Ensembles Music Program, under the direction of Mr. Gary Washburn; the very program that has and continues to push students alike with Mark. Mark furthered his education at Pacific University in Forest Grove, Oregon, and excelled in music, performing at carious school functions, luaus, and concerts around the Portland area.
