Mark Clennon unveils new single Don’t Start a Fire

Future-soul artist Mark Clennon is back with a poignant new single, Don’t Start a Fire. On this new track, the Toronto-based artist explores relationship ambiguity and the far too common phenomenon of playing with another person’s feelings. This song encapsulates what the Jamaican-born musician is all about, using his powerful, touching voice to honestly sing over this sweeping track. Don’t Start a Fire is the first single from Clennon’s upcoming EP Foreign. This EP sees him fully embrace his outsider-ness, while highlighting his struggle to balance his Jamaican roots with his Canadian background.

Don’t Start a Fire is available on all music services.

This new single marks his first release since Passion (2019), his sophomore EP and first release with Bonsound. With Passion, the intention was to experiment with a variety of styles and sounds. Mark wanted to free himself from genre restrictions in order to tell a story through these four songs. Therefore, it showcases the artist at his most sincere, addressing some of his deepest concerns - emotional disappointment, lack of societal social tolerance, among other daunting thoughts.

About Mark Clennon
Mark Clennon makes music that is both grandiose and humble by mixing together a variety of genres. The crooner delivers honest, touching lyrics in his powerful voice over sweeping compositions. Clennon’s versatile beats and lyricism mesh together to create an empowering, emotional and captivating sound.

Born in Jamaica to a musical family, Clennon’s father was a Trenchtown-bred saxophone player, and his brother became a successful dancehall producer. Participation in Jamaican Pantomimes while growing up inspired him to take a theatrical approach to his music, which today is reflected in his aesthetics, his erratic dance moves and his compelling stage presence. The artist left his home country at age 15 and struggled to find a balance between his Jamaican roots and growing into being Torontonian. The thriving RnB scene of the city is motivating for Clennon, though he often feels stuck between two cultures and realities, and is constantly trying to figure out how to bring together both sides.
