Please note: This show has been moved to Sonia @ The Middle East in Cambridge, MA.

John Mark McMillan presents the “Mercury & Lightning Tour” featuring special guests The Brilliance and LaPeer

JOHN MARK MCMILLAN is something of an anomaly: an artist and Platinum-selling songwriter bending genres and defying categorization by carving out his own unique and independent path. With an ear for melody and a poet’s eye for metaphor, no topic has been off-limits. While each of his albums over the past decade have continued to explore new territory, it’s McMillan’s ability to give lyric and language to the human experience that many consider his greatest gift. Mercury & Lightning, the latest offering from McMillan, reminds us why we love great songwriters; The great ones find a way to put new words to private musings and desperate feelings until the songs themselves begin to live in our bones.

Though the robust 14-song album doesn’t release until Sept 1, the iTunes pre-order launches July 28 with four instant grat tracks including the title track “Mercury & Lightning,” “Wilderlove,” “No Country,” and “Enemy, love.” The vibe and tone from each track will mesmerize but it’s McMillan’s voice that draws you in and makes you feel as though you’ve pulled up a chair to one of those conversations you want to stick around for. The entire album was recorded just outside of Portland, OR at Feng Sway Studios over 18 months with close friend Gabriel Wilson and long time bandmate Jesse Proctor. Their collaboration produced the kind of record that your kid usually discovers before you do – something progressive yet accessible. Borrowing from their childhood influences, McMillan, Wilson and Proctor bring elements of 80’s rock and 90’s R&B together, somehow making the record feel both modern and unexpected.

The album title was pulled from Roman mythology. “Mercury is the god of financial gain, commerce, communication, travelers, boundaries, luck, trickery and thieves”, says McMillan. “If something is hard to catch, understand or lock down, it’s known to be ‘mercurial’ or ‘like Mercury.’ The story of the new record begins with a conversation about all the things we run after, give our lives to – even die for – that often seem so mercurial and mysterious.” And John Mark would know; This being his 7th studio album, each new record seems to reveal a man chasing a new set of questions we should have been asking ourselves all along. On the heels of releasing his single “No Country” the week before the presidential election, John Mark said, “There was a point when I was afraid to finish this song. I abandoned it multiple times asking myself, ‘How many people really want to hear a white guy singing about being marginalized?’ Sure, I know how it feels to be lonely and misunderstood, but I’ve certainly never been discriminated against. I’ve never been asked and certainly not forced to vacate the luxuries and safety of my middle class suburban situation. So, what am I even singing about? Refugees? Sure. Racism? Yes. Immigration? Sure. Politics? Maybe. Relationships? Aging? Yes and yes. But ultimately I think that the song is summed up in one line: ‘Do you see me?’ It’s the cry of all of us – to be known.”

McMillan is no stranger to success with nearly half a million monthly listeners on Spotify and 40 million Spotify streams, but he won’t let those things define him. John Mark says he’s learned a lot about himself since his previous studio album Borderland, which held a Top 15 spot on the iTunes Albums chart and No. 41 on Billboard’s Top 200. When talking about his life and career McMillan says, “I’ve found that there’s a profound restlessness in the gap between the ideals of youth and the realities of adulthood – even when, especially when, you get what you wanted.”

It’s this level of honesty and wrestling with where he is during this season of his career and life that compelled McMillan to open up about his struggle with anxiety. “I try to control my world and since that is supremely not possible,” says McMillan, “I get anxiety. I promised myself when I got married that I wouldn’t miss a moment with my exquisite china-doll girl, but…I get anxiety. Then we had kids and I swore I wouldn’t let go of a precious second of their lives. They’re such wild birds, and their raucous life and energy bring me outrageous amounts of joy, but also…anxiety. My attempts to control the universe only creates enemies. Enemies with the world, enemies with the ones I love, and I find myself at odds with God and with myself – in trying so hard to have it all the way I want it, I become my own worst enemy. ‘Enemy, love.’, like much of the new record, is about growing up – especially the ‘letting go’ part of growing up. There are just things I can’t know, I can’t hold, and I can’t control. Not to be irresponsible or dismissive, but I’m realizing when I ‘let go’ of my ideals and ego, I also become much better at holding onto what I actually have.”

In 2015, McMillan, who has made a career of rejecting easy categorization and challenging expectations, co-founded the independent record label Lionhawk Records with his manager Josh Lujan Loveless. Mercury & Lightning stands to be the third album release from Lionhawk Records with additional releases in the works.

Over the past year, John Mark joined NEEDTOBREATHE’s Tour De Compadres with Mat Kearney and Welshly Arms and co-headlined The Revelators Tour with Josh Garrels. This year McMillan plans to hit the road again on a three-month US headlining tour kicking off in September in support of the new album.
