„ Mark will shortly return to the studio to continue recording for his next album. The usual musicians will be involved with the addition of Greg Leisz on pedal steel and other stringed instruments. No release date is available but it is likely to be towards the end of this year at the earliest.“ From mk-news
I have never heard of Greg Leisz…

Seems like he has worked with everyone.

I love the pedal steel. I own one and it’s incredibly difficult to play.

Pedal Steel players are magicians basically... Knee pedals, foot pedals, going out of tune all the time, thinking about changing chords all the time. By difficulty of learning it reminds me of playing jazz on a diatonic harmonica. Ridiculously hard to learn!

But Pedal steel is nice, and not Paul Franklin! Surprise, surprise.

I have a pedal steel with only three pedals and it’s crazy.

You press down pedals and the whole fretboard changes. Crazy!

I'm so happy to hear the return of pedal steel! Really good news, I think it fits MK's music very well.

Oh yeah, love me some pedal steel! And Greg Leisz is a legend. Paul Franklin as well, by the way ;-)

The usual other musicians…  ::)

I would have liked some changes… for a change…

I do enjoy a bit of pedal steel guitar so long as it's not on everything.   I loved it on "You and Your Friends" for example.  I hope the new album is not entirely country music, but I feel sure there will be lots of styles as usual, especially as it seems the folkies are involved again.

This is great news, I hope Mark is returning to the Golden Heart era type songs, I loved his use of Pedal Steel, shame it's not Paul Franklin, but no matter, Greg seems very experienced, looking at the list of people he has worked with, I have already heard him without knowing who it was.

Some late MK records had pedal steel guitar and were not country at all, like, for example, Privateering.

I have just read an interview with Vince Gill from 23rd December 2021 where he says is making another album with Paul Franklin, maybe that's why Mark is using Greg? maybe Paul recommended him to Mark.

Probably.

I thought that maybe Paul was afraid to travel to London because of Covid, but that makes more sense.
