Hello fellow Knopfler fans!

Today we from His Mark On Us are very happy and excited to release our cover of 'Single Handed Sailor' by Dire Straits.

https://youtu.be/T2o9kxvvbN8

We are three guys who met each other on the Mark Knopfler fans worldwide facebook group and since last year we are making covers of Mark Knopfler and Dire Straits. You might remember us from that 'What it is' cover which was shared by Mark Knopfler & Dire Straits last year and got over 22.000 views.

We hope you will enjoy this one! And enjoy your day.

- His Mark On Us.

Bo Zølner - Mixing, Rhythm guitars
Daan Theoden - Drums, video editing
Wes Leurs - Lead Guitar, vocals and bass.

Yeah, a very hard one when trying to emulate the style of the maestro.

You cover is freaking good.

If I want to be perfectly honest I like the singing a bit less than the rest (that said it is still way better than some other covers band).

You asked for suggestion, I think tune like Silvertown Blues would fit you.

And for my personal taste : It Never Rains

Are you three (Wes, Bo and Daan) still collaborating? If so, I'd love to see/hear a cover of Lady Writer. I think it would suit your style perfectly. Also, did the three of you each record his parts in separate locations? The audio editing and mixing was first class.

Hey, yes we are. Currently we are planning to record down to the waterline. And yes! Daan and I both live in seperate places in the Netherlands and Bo lives in Denmark. It is great fun, we record our own original songs at home as well and we help each other doing that. It is great fun and we are looking forward to our next cover
