  • Stella K
    Mark Lettieri (Fort Worth, TX)

What do you do in the music industry?

Guitarist: composer, instructor, performer, and session musician.

What does being a member of The Recording Academy mean to you?

Not only is it a way to network with content creators across the entire spectrum of musical arts, it allows me to give back to those who support art, as well as inspire youth to purse careers in music and music business.

What advice would you give someone wanting to get into the music industry?

Establish a clear direction towards what you want to accomplish, and don't be afraid to take risks.

Tell us about the musical influences and inspirations that helped to shape your career.

Working with the musicians of the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex, plus the tutelage of some great mentors, has been invaluable and has helped me define my "sound" as an artist. That, plus countless hours jamming along to my favorite records; everything from thrash metal to jazz to R&B. 

What projects are you currently working on?

I am gearing up for some shows with my trio as well as with Snarky Puppy and others, plus teaching, recording sessions, and working on producing a steady stream of audio and video content for my social media accounts and website. Today's working musicians wear many hats!
