The following is a collection of my recorded music. Some old, some newer, all of it original, all of it is the fruit of collaboration with my amazing friends.

Here are the people who contributed to the Street recordings. As I find photos, I’ll put them up.
We recorded this one night in the summer of 1985, on a Tascam 8 track. Fred Eichel engineered and mastered. Juan Campa and I produced the project. I wrote the music & Lyrics.
The Street 24 Track Version
We gave The Street another try about a year later. This time we did it on a 24 track Studer Machine. We didn’t finish or master the entire project. These tracks are from a rough mix of those sessions. All the guys except Chris played on this one. We added Brian on Bass, and Bruce on drums.
This is an album I did with the worship team members at Eastern Hills Community Church.
All the details, players, singers, engineers, songwriters are listed on the credits on the CD inserts.
This was a labor of love. Mark
I wrote, performed and recorded all these songs on an early hard drive 8 track recorder. The drums are an Alesis HR-16. The keys are a Roland module, and a Roland W-30 sampling workstation. I sang through a PL-20 into a little tube pre-amp and into the digital recorder at line-level.
The guitars were my Strat played though a Boss pedal. My Martin D-18 and the old Blue Ovation.
Boomer-X Live at Common Grounds Coffee Shop, Modesto, CA 8-8-1997
In August of 1997 I persuaded a few friends to do a coffee shop gig featuring some of my tunes. We didn’t get much of a chance to rehearse, but then again, anyone can practice, not everyone can play. This is the official “Boomer-X Bootleg.”
SELAH Craig Wright & Mark Schmidt 3-17-1992
Craig and I have been best friends since college (78-82 for me) After that we continued to sing together. This recording is from one of our practice sessions I taped.
I wrote the songs, built the tracks and sequences and played the guitar stuff.
We both sing, Craig also played the harp on a few tracks.
A Place Of Grace
This album was recorded in 2002 when I was the Minister Of Music at Eastern Hills Community Church.
I wrote the songs, the band and singers from the teams performed the music.
We recorded it in-house on my old Fostex 8 track digital recorder. My friend Bob Hartman paid for the finished discs, the we gave it away.
We must have given away about 1500 copies. Enjoy it.
The Denver Demo
This album was recorded in my daughters room in around the first half of the year 2000.
Many of the songs are the Place of Grace album.
I played, wrote and sang all the tracks. This was also done on my Fostex 8-track digital recorder.
Some of my favorite stuff is on this disc. Enjoy. Mark
