"Only once or twice in my 30 year career has someone impressed me as much as you Mark. I have always believed that the true key to success is staying focused in the midst of confusion, and lets face it, this business can be very hard to stay focused on at times. You have mastered this key. Your incredible talent as a producer and songwriter has prompted me to drop you a line just to say how much I admire and respect you. Thanks for all you do"

His musical creativity and songwriting talent set him apart from everyone else in town. He's just the guy you need in the producer's seat when you're ready to take your career to the next level.

The quality is unmatched and they sound like they're ready for radio! I am SO proud of this project. Thanks for everything!"

Mark couldn't have produced this any better. It's leaves me with a whole new confidence." Ashton Shepard

He found some great material and worked on my project until it was even better than I hoped for."

"Mark Oliverius is the best kept secret in Nashville. I'm writing this because he has promised to produce my next album, if not I would have kept him a secret too. Honest, hard working, and the best at what he does, which is produce hit songs. Mark is also a great songwriter. There are so many great singers and so few great songs out there; Mark has a the ability to write great songs, co-write, or find songs that get you noticed. Being a songwriter and a singer myself, I know how hard it is to get noticed; Mark helped me take the first big step, which is to produce a record that is full of hits. Even before I finished my project with Mark, I had record deal offers. On Jan 25th 2008 I signed with Spectra Records, home to Lou Gramm, T-Rex, Tommy 2 Tone, Razzy Bailey and other greats. The end of June Spectra started releasing "Twang Thang" to radio, within three weeks we are already charting. If you have talent, and want the best shot at making it, I would put my money on Mark. He can get you started in the right direction".

Reviews from Robert K. Oermann(Music Row Magazine):
CHRISTEN SAWYER/Crazy Writer: Oliverius/Sawyer; Producer: Mark Oliverius; Publisher: none listed; Rapid Rise (track) (www.christensawyer.com) —This is not the Willie Nelson/Patsy Cline “Crazy.” It is a feisty little bopper with some sting in its sound. She sings with plenty of oomph, and a sizzling, searing electric guitar echoes her at every turn. This is one hot disc.”
“BURNS & POE…"Second Chance". “In a word, “Wow.” LOVE the track: It pulses like a heartbeat. Michelle aches exquisitely in her lead vocal. The chorus has monstrous hooks. This thing has the wings of a mighty angel.
