Mark Utley is the songwriter and male voice behind Magnolia Mountain, one of the midwest’s most acclaimed and prolific Americana/Roots Rock bands, with four full-band albums and multiple regional Band-Album-Songwriter of the Year nominations to his credit.

Four Chords and a Lie is Utley’s solo debut, a 50/50 mix of five straight-up Honky Tonk Country originals performed with his all-star side project Bulletville and five more stripped-down originals performed solo or duet-style with vocalist Renee Frye.

Soulful, haunting, and pure, Four Chords and a Lie takes the listener down a moonlit road from good-time Honky Tonk revelry to melancholy late-night reverie.

"Like a sculptor who has immense respect for the permanence of the stone but also implicitly trusts his chisel and creative vision, Utley shapes the raw material of Americana’s various stylistic permutations into songs that are comfortably familiar yet blazingly original." - Brian Baker, CityBeat
