Grand Rapids’ native son Mark Lavengood has toured the Regional, National, and International music circuits for over 10 years. Wearing a multitude of hats as multi-instrumentalist, singer/songwriter, bandleader, educator, mentor, active member of Michigan’s Earthwork Music Collective, emeritus member of Lindsay Lou & the Flatbellys, source of motivational energy, hobbyist massage therapist, Spanish translator and idea generator, Lavengood (affectionately known globally as “Huggy Bear”) employs his many skill sets to engage and collaborate with communities through song and voice.
Anyone that has witnessed Lavengood performs will attest to these three key attributes: his big heart, wild energy on stage, and the aptitude on the many instruments that he plays. Having released 3 LPs and a 7-inch vinyl under his own name in conjunction with several albums with Lindsay Lou, Mark Lavengood is no stranger to the hustle of the music industry. He is currently touring & promoting his many projects while actively writing and recording new music to be released with Earthwork Music.
