Profile
Mark Fry (born 4 November 1952) is an English painter and psychedelic folk musician. He is best known for his album Dreaming with Alice, released in 1972, which has been hailed as a psychedelic folk classic by critics, and a diverse range of musicians. After the album failed to generate much interest, he pursued other interests, including painting, until the cult popularity of Alice resulted in a reissue and increased his profile. He returned to recording in 2008 with Shooting the Moon and has continued musical activities since.
