Mark Evans a.k.a Lucas Marks fronts a band called 'Lucas Marks and the Glorious Unknown' and his passions are for the spontaneity and communicative powers of music. Radio Silence was written after a long, silent meditation retreat and recorded on a farm near Wigan. Mark has told the UKSC that It refers to how relationships between people can break down and how to reach across the divide in order to re-connect. He adds, "'For me it is the quirkiness of the drum patters that brings this song alive." Thank you for sharing this with us and congratulations on being announced the Indie category winner for the 2022 UK songwriting contest.
