He was born as Mark David Hollis, but best known as Mark Hollis. He had two brothers, one older and one younger. His older brother, Ed Hollis, became a disc jockey and producer who managed bands such as Eddie and the Hot Rods. He attended Tollington School, a now-defunct grammar school in Muswell Hill, London, and he had taken a course in child psychology at the University of Sussex but dropped out after a year and a half. His music career started to come to fruition when he formed a band, The Reaction. In 1977, The Reaction recorded a demo for Island Records; among the tracks was a Hollis original titled “Talk Talk Talk Talk” which later surfaced on the Beggars Banquet Records punk compilation Streets. After just one single, 1978’s “I Can’t Resist”, The Reaction disbanded. Through his brother, Hollis was introduced to musicians Paul Webb, Lee Harris and Simon Brenner, with whom he formed Talk Talk in 1981, soon signing to the EMI label. Hollis is best known as the lead singer and primary songwriter of the band Talk Talk between 1981 and 1991. He was praised for his “always remarkable voice, and, along with Talk Talk’s producer Tim Friese-Greene, took the lead in evolving the band’s style from New Romantic into the more experimental and contemplative style that later became known as post-rock. In 1998, Hollis released an eponymous solo debut album, Mark Hollis, and then, according to a 2008 article in The Guardian, retired from music. However, he briefly participated in occasional musical projects, including playing melodica and bass guitar on Anja Garbarek’s 2001 album Smiling & Waving, as well as producing two tracks on it. In 2012, a piece of specially commissioned music by Hollis entitled “ARB Section 1”, was used in the television series Boss.

    He has two children and his wife is a teacher. In 2004, Hollis resurfaced briefly to receive a Broadcast Music Inc. Award for having written “It’s My Life”. He released a self-titled solo album in 1998 before retiring from the music industry. He and Talk Talk are credited with helping to invent the genre known as “post-rock” with their final two albums, Spirit of Eden and Laughing Stock.
