Mark James Morriss (born 18 October 1971, Hounslow, Middlesex, England) is an English singer-songwriter, formerly the lead singer for The Bluetones, who split up in September 2011 following a farewell tour. He is the older brother of former bandmate and bass player/illustrator Scott Morriss, and is currently pursuing a solo career.
His debut solo album, Memory Muscle, was released in May 2008. A gentler, folk-tinged record, it includes five re-recorded tracks which had previously been released under the name "Fi-Lo Beddow" as an EP in February 2006. The strings on the record were arranged by David Arnold, who became a fan of Expecting to Fly whilst scoring Independence Day.
In May 2011, Morriss played at the LeeStock Music Festival in Sudbury, Suffolk as the headline act on the closing Sunday, and it was announced that he would also be performing again at the festival on 3 June 2012.
