Tracking: Carolyn Mark - "None Of Me"

When musicians aren't raking in the big bucks performing and getting paid in "exposure," they're often getting paid with a free drink and, if they're lucky, a meal.

But sometimes even the promise of a free drink is reneged, or switched with cheap beer, and the musician is forced to get political in the only way they know how — by writing a song about it.

So it went once for Vancouver Island chanteuse Carolyn Mark, who made a tour stop in Fort St. John on February 2.

“I’ve never written a political song before, but, occasionally, events will touch your life so you're forced to," Mark says of her time playing open mics at a pub in Victoria over her two-decade career.

“When we first started, everybody that performed could get a drink that they wanted, and now everyone that plays gets one tall can of Pabst Blue Ribbon. So, you see why I was forced to go political.”

Here's a clip of Carolyn Mark performing "None Of Me" at Whole Wheat & Honey in Fort St. John, Feb. 2, 2019:
