Mark Lanier has long been considered among Gospel Music's favorite artists. He is also a noted composer and many of his songs are known as gospel classics. Mark started singing at the age of four in his local church in the small community of Central, AL   Mark and his brothers, Jeff and Kevin, were in the choir while Mark's father directed the music and his mother played the piano. He served at several churches as music minister and youth director. Mark has enjoyed an interesting musical career from a cast member and stage manager of Opryland's "Country Music USA" and "Today's Country Roads" to his current work as a solo artist. Mark spent five years with the Bibletones, seven years with Perfect Heart, a highly-acclaimed and awarded quartet and the last few years with Poet Voices. While with Poet Voices, the group received a nomination for a Dove Award. Mark was a top five nominee for favorite Baritone seven years in a row. He now feels God has even more for him to do. Mark has always been destined to sing his songs of praise, but even more, to be used by God to touch the hearts of others.

He's had songs recorded by artists like: The Kingsmen, The Nelons, The Florida Boys, Perfect Heart, Down East Boys, The Lesters, James Blackwood, Jake Hess, Poet Voices, Danny Funderburk, Bibletones, Amy Lambert, Jerry Goff, Crossmen, Kingdom Heirs, etc...
