The Happiness Playlist


Mark Mallman

Mark Mallman’s expansive catalog of infinitely catchy and masterfully orchestrated songs has rocked airwaves worldwide. He’s been written up by critics from USA Today to Wired and NME and his wild stage persona has earned him opening spots with such diverse artists as Cat Power and Donovan.

Mallman is continually reshaping how music is performed, sometimes using a telepresence robot to rock a music venue from several miles away, other times through the use of EEG brain waves, and most notably through his legendary “Marathon” events. His non-stop, non-sleep “Marathon III” stretched 78 hours and included 576 pages of lyrics. He also holds the world’s first transcontinental musical webcast.

On March 25, 2016, Mallman released “The End is Not The End,” which features themes of life after death and constant rebirth on earth. Mallman created the album after his mother died and he was dealing with depression and anxiety attacks. He has said in interviews that it’s “a deliberate meditation on overcoming the roots of despair.”

His book “The Happiness Playlist” is now available!
