Mark Healey is more than just the latest songwriter with a new album out. Since 1986 Mark has played bass guitar, and sang with the internationally renowned rock band Badfinger. Badfinger signed with the Beatles' label, Apple Records in 1969. The group's first single was "Come and Get It" written by Paul McCartney. The band followed with hit songs "No Matter What", "Baby Blue", "Day After Day", and "Without You".

Mark grew up in Madison, Wisconsin. He learned to play drums, keyboards, and guitar, before picking up the bass at age 14. After high school he played with several regional, and national acts. Including Dealer, Eargazm, and Crow. In 1981 Mark moved to Los Angeles, CA, where he became a successful recording engineer and producer. After joining Badfinger, Mark moved to Minneapolis, MN where he continued to produce and record music. About 8 years ago, he downsized the business and moved back to Wisconsin. The relocation finally gave him time to finish his first solo album. Today Mark and Badfinger still play about 40 to 50 concerts a year. Mark's new CD titled "Inside Out" speaks to his classic rock roots, intermixed with pop, and a modern rock flavor. It's rock and roll with a melody line. "I didn't try to steer it in any particular direction; the songs just took on a life of their own" said Mark. He enlisted the help of fellow Badfinger band mates, including original member Joey Molland, John Richardson (The Gin Blossoms), and Billy Davis (Foghat) to play on and record "Inside Out".

In 2011 Mark signed a record deal with Angel Air Records in the U.K. Mark Healey/ Inside Out is distributed throughout the world by Angel Air Records, and in the U.S. by Allergro Media Group.
