About Mark Mulcahy

Mark Mulcahy is an American musician and front-man for the New Haven, Connecticut-based band Miracle Legion in the 1980s to mid-1990s, 2016 - present. The band earned modest renown, especially in their native New England region, but disbanded after a sad turn of events with their record label, Morgan Creek Records. Mulchahy soon formed Polaris, a house band for the mid-1990s alternative television series The Adventures of Pete & Pete . They are perhaps best remembered for the song "Hey Sandy" as it was featured in the opening credits of each show, and for nostalgic tunes such as "Waiting for October" and "Saturnine". Following the cancellation of Pete & Pete, Mulcahy found himself playing his own shows in New York City and building up his career from a shadowy past. Mulcahy has opened for many notable artists including Oasis and Jeff Buckley and received homage from Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke, who dedicated a song to Mulcahy at a Boston show. Mark is still working on his solo career today via his own label Mezzotint.com.


An essay on Mulcahy's song "Hey Self-Defeater" was featured in Nick Hornby's book 31 Songs.


In 2003, Mulcahy was invited to sing a Haiku poem, "Haiku Three In The Museum Garden", by Nobel Laureate George Seferis, on the international release of Electronica band Sigmatropic Sixteen Haiku & Other Stories which also featured the likes of Robert Wyatt, Laetitia Sadier , Cat Power, Alejandro Escovedo, Mark Eitzel, Lee Ranaldo , Howe Gelb & Steve Wynn amongst many others.


A subsequent limited edition 12-inch by Sigmatropic the following year, Could That Be The Voice? , featured Mulcahy on two featured alternate remixes, "Haiku One" and "Haiku Four", as well as contributions by Edith Frost & Carla Torgerson .


He also composed the music for and performed in Ben Katchor's 2004 musical, The Slug Bearers of Kayrol Island, or, The Friends of Dr. Rushower. Mulcahy also co-wrote the musical The Rosenbach Company with Katchor.


Mulcahy recorded a cover version of Shania Twain's "From This Moment On" for Engine Room Recordings' compilation album Guilt by Association, which was released in September 2007.


His song "Cookie Jar" was used in the 2008 movie Management over the closing credits.
