The news and culture website Interrobang, has lavished praise on FIT’s own Mark Lesseraux and his second solo CD “Transmissions 2003-2012”:
“Mark Lesseraux has been one of the best kept secrets in music for the better part of a decade. An outstanding singer, lyricist and musician, Mark’s off-kilter blend of pop, rock, blues and everything in between has made him a mainstay on the New York independent music scene.”
Talent gets spread around pretty thick at FIT, and among staff there’s no exception. By day, Lesseraux is the School of Art & Design’s technician and model coordinator. During what he calls his “batman hours,” he writes and records at a studio in the Bronx. On his latest CD he sings, plays percussion, guitar and keyboard.
“It’s quite good to be alive/In these tough confusing times/Cuz they’re the times with you and I/Look around you and you’ll see the signs/Of a compassionate design/Underneath the grit and grind”
from “”It’s Quite Good to Be Alive”
“It has something for everyone,” say the writers at Interrobang.
“Transmissions is a perfect entry in the brilliant mind of Mark Lesseraux,” they conclude.
