About Mark rushton

I'm a 100% independent recording artist who has been publishing original music in the ambient, electronic, and avant-garde genres, as well as environmental field recordings.  These are published to services such as:


Spotify, Pandora, Apple Music, Bandcamp, iTunes, Amazon, YouTube, Deezer, Napster, TikTok/Resso, Tidal, KKBox (China), JioSaavn (India), Claro Musica (South America), Anghami (Middle East), Kanjian (Japan), Yandex (Russia), DMX Music (cable TV), iHeartRadio, Midwest Tape (libraries), SiriusXM, NPR, and many others.


A member of ASCAP since 2002, I'm affiliated with the Harry Fox Agency, SoundExchange, and Music Reports.  I'm currently affiliated with Songtrust for worldwide mechanical and publishing administration, and have more than 2500 titles in my catalog.  My music and sounds are available for licensing.  I'm a "One Stop" recording artist for licensing.


I'm also a fine artist, creating original paintings using acrylic ink and acrylic paint.  Many of these are abstract or in an abstract landscape style.  Examples of my work are available on my Paintings page.


Since November 2020, I have been producing a video talk show with most of the discussion centering on being a recording artist and a painter.  These programs are available on YouTube, Odysee, UGETube, and BitChute.


I used to be a podcaster, producing 181 episodes of the Ambient Rushton Podcast between 2004 and 2021.  I also helped produce the monthly Boundoff literary podcast for 9 years.
