In the mid-nineties rasta singer Mark Wonder emerged on the international reggae scene with some notable 45s. The latter included "Sign Of The Times", "Cry Aloud" (in combination with Skatta), "Behold Africa", "Let's Not Be Ashamed" and "Just Lead The Way", all produced by Morris "K.C." White & Peter Jonker for Dutch record label 'Zola & Zola Music'. Due to the liquidation of this record company the planned full length album "Sign Of The Times" didn't become a reality. However, since the release of the 45s (all available on a few compilation cd's) Mark Wonder has been heralded as one of the new crop of singers likely to fill the vacuum left by the tragic death of Garnet Silk. But, even though he finally managed to get two albums released -- "Jeremiah" on 'Sound Proof Records' in 1999 and the live album "New Land" (also featuring a few tracks by Prince Theo), courtesy of Trinity Records, in 2001 -- he's yet to win the wide acclaim his early career promised.
Wonder, who originates from Kingston, but grew up in Albion, Manchester, started recording in the late 1980s. He had originally planned to become a jockey, but the jockey school intervened. He was unable to procure a school-leaving certificate, after dropping out of school, in order to get entry to the jockey school, so he decided to stick to music.
