ABOUT

My name is Mark Janz, and I'm a songwriter and lead guitarist looking to form a new kind of rock n' roll band. My favorite era of rock music is from the 80s and 70s, and I'd love to make those sensibilities into something fresh for the 2020s. I used to play in a glam metal band called Dextress here in Canada, and we accomplished some great things like opening for Diamond Head, Sebastian Bach, and Rick Springfield. I love glam metal, but I found that box to be limiting for making an impact in the modern world. I'd love to blend the energy and aesthetic of Motley Crue and The Rolling Stones, and make it feel as fresh as The 1975 and recent 5 Seconds of Summer did when they came out. Please message me on instagram @mark.janz and we can chat a bit (I'll always respond), and listen to some of the songs I wrote for Dextress below. I left my family, friends, and life behind in Canada to come give rock n' roll a shot over here in London and the rest of Europe; so I'm ready to go the distance if you are.
