Mark Bradley Davis
Mark Bradley Davis picked up his first pair of drumsticks in 5th grade after receiving a kit for Christmas in 1985. He joined the school band at the earliest age possible in 7th grade and worked on his craft throughout the years. Along the way he was able to be a part of the 4A National Champions High School Marching Band with Lumberton Senior High in 1990 and continued his drum corps training under the tutelage of Vic Firth endorsed instructor Matt Savage at UNC-Chapel Hill while playing snare as a member of The Tar Heels drum line in 1992-1993. Mark was one of 200 drummers asked nationally to try out for Ozzy Osbourne in 1994 but that gig was awarded to Faith No More's Mike Bordin. For the next 25 years he paved his way through the local and regional music scene along the east coast in various bands until hooking up with William Baker to help form Hollow Intent in late 2018. His background includes a variety of influences ranging from KISS, anything Ozzy related, Badlands, COC, all of the Big 4 bands, Pantera, Alice in Chains all the way to 311, Ice-T and the Beastie Boys to round things off. Mark is a product of 80's hair metal and knew he wanted to bang his head ever since he wore out Quiet Riot's Metal Health, Ratt's Out of the Cellar and Motley Crue's Shout at the Devil. Nothing has changed since first experiencing those sonic emotions.
Professionally, Mark continues his career as an educator with almost two decades worth of experience in the classroom at both the high and middle school levels. He currently has a Master's degree in Literacy but prefers to teach history and social studies as a result of his certification and fascination in that area. As a lifelong learner, Mark has taught classes ranging from Musical Theater, World History, Street Law, Current Events, Geography and even Anatomy, just to name a few. His passion for music allowed him to coordinate his own non-profit alternative music program for students entitled "Horry County Students Rock" from 2010-2015. The group developed their talents and played various charity events including gigs at the House of Blues in Myrtle Beach, Hard Rock Cafe in the same city and the ESPN/Hootie & the Blowfish/Darius Rucker sponsored event "Monday After the Masters" in 2012. Throughout their existence the organization received over $15,000 in grants from the International House of Blues Foundation and NAMM to provide for their instruments and marketing needs. Mark Bradley Davis loves sharing his passion for music with others and this continues to this day. His energetic live performances are definitely getting noticed!
