Mark Oslord

Bassist/Vocalist for BEST NOT BROKEN

Long time musician and performer. Currently playing bass and singing in Boston's well-received Indie Pop Rock band, Best Not Broken! ABOUT THE BAND: Boston’s Best Not Broken has built a reputation for high energy shows and catchy, power pop/rock original songs. Drawing from Brit Pop, Alternative Rock, New Wave, and their own unique brand of singer-songwriter sensibility, the band crafts soundscapes that appeal to fans of artists ranging from The Killers to Ed Sheeran. Their thoughtful and, at times amusing, lyrics match the upbeat nature of the instrumentation, creating a fresh musical odyssey that is infectiously fun. Their live performances showcase the band’s contagious energy and often evolve into interactive dance parties where the onstage antics compel fans to rock out and let loose. As a 2016 New England Music Awards winner, Best Not Broken has earned radio airplay with “Tell Me That You Want Me” and “I Won’t Stop Loving You”, as well as the recently released “Faster”. The band has several videos to their credit, including the release of the video-single “What The Night Has Left”. Best Not Broken has opened for legendary rockers like Pat Benatar, Little River Band, Gin Blossoms, and Jefferson Starship as well as contemporary chart-topping artists like Jason Derulo and Matt Nathanson. They have played major venues all over the Northeast including the Blue Ocean Music Hall and Brighton Music Hall in MA, The Aura and Maine State Pier in ME, The Bitter End and Parkside Lounge in NYC, the Casino Ballroom and Tupelo Music Hall in NH, and The Met in RI. The band’s debut EP, Somewhere Good, produced by Boston music legend David Minehan, put them on the map in compelling fashion. Their follow-up EP, Falling In, also produced by Minehan, shows a band that has continued to mature, while maintaining the hooks and grooves that originally set them apart. Best Not Broken’s newest singles, “Faster” and "Brain", embody their latest evolution of sound. The band is currently planning new recordings and touring throughout the Northeast.
