Mark McCauley


New South Bass

Born in Tallahassee, Florida, Mark McCauley grew up attending Billy Hudson gospel sings locally and in South Georgia. Mark became fascinated with bass singing and began to collect gospel quartet albums. Before long, he started singing along with those bass singers at a very early age and joined his family gospel group. Later at 17, he joined his first professional quartet and ultimately wound up in Nashville on the Billboard country charts with Wally Fowler and the Tennessee Valley Boys.

He has worked with many country music legends along the way, and was a member of the Loretta Lynn Show, The Mel Tillis Show, The Blackwood Quartet, the Gospel Singing Jubilee TV series and more. He has even joined Loretta on her A & E television special Loretta Lynn Live.

The American Association of Musical Artists (AAMA) voted Mark McCauley Favorite Bass Singer twice.

He is married to his lovely wife Donel, and together they have one son, Jacob. They currently own and operate the Historic Kite House Bed and Breakfast in downtown Hollister and attend Skyline Southern Baptist Church.

Mark holds a black belt in Kenpo Jiu Jitsu (Shodan). In addition, he enjoys real estate and is a Master Mason. He really enjoys carrying on the old style tradition of baffling low notes that shake the building.
