 +Mark Heard'​s first musical musical project was a folk rock band called Infinity+3. They released one album independently called //Setting Yesterday Free// in 1970. It was re-released on Spirit Records in 1972. Mark Heard played guitar, harmonica, and bass guitar, provided vocals, and wrote 5 of the 11 songs.
  
 After graduating from the University of Georgia in 1974 with an ABJ (Bachelor of Arts in Journalism) degree in television, Heard traveled to Switzerland to study at L'Abri under the influential evangelical Christian philosopher Francis Schaeffer. Singers [[Larry Norman]] and [[Randy Stonehill]] stumbled onto Mark one day playing his guitar. Because Norman and Stonehill expressed interest, Heard spent most of his spare time the next two months putting together a demo tape in a local studio with the help of the Pat Terry group (Pat Terry, Sonny Lallerstedt,​ and Randy Bugg). Norman was so impressed by Heard'​s abilities that he soon signed him to his record label, [[Solid Rock Records]]. Heard and his wife Janet moved to Glendale, California in 1977 to begin work on his //​Appalachian Melody// album for the label, but would also maintain a close relationship with the people at the L'Abri for years. Heard would also record and release //​Fingerprint//​ on a Swiss label in 1980. After graduating from the University of Georgia in 1974 with an ABJ (Bachelor of Arts in Journalism) degree in television, Heard traveled to Switzerland to study at L'Abri under the influential evangelical Christian philosopher Francis Schaeffer.

 +==== The Lost Artifacts of an American Poet ====
 +
 +2007 Solid Rock Records (SRD-MH-001)
 +
 +"These recently uncovered Mark Heard songs contain many of his primary recordings. Solid Rock Records had signed Mark Heard two years before the "​Mother"​ company finally agreed to release his Solid Rock album, which was largely produced by himself. So from the first week Mark moved to Los Angeles and went into the Solid Rock Studios until he was able to make official recordings, he would often drop by SRS and record these beautiful renditions of songs he had written.
 +
 +His skill as a guitarist and the subtlety of his chording is alarmingly clear. One only has to listen, in contrast, to the songs he later made official recordings of to see that any augmentation through arrangements detracted a great deal of the beauty of his natural instinct and disciplined gift."

 +===== Tributes and Influence =====
 +
 +In 1993, Rich Mullins covered "How to Grow Up Big and Strong"​ on his //A Liturgy, a Legacy, & a Ragamuffin Band//. In 1994, many artists came together to record a tribute album called //Strong Hand of Love//. Artists lending their talents to the project included Phil Keaggy, Victoria Williams, [[Chagall Guevara]], Buddy Miller, Julie Miller, [[Daniel Amos]], [[The Choi]]r, Bruce Cockburn, and the [[Vigilantes of Love]]. The project was later reissued as a two-CD set with additional tracks and re-titled //Orphans of God//. Cockburn frequently calls Heard his favorite songwriter and even wrote and recorded a song dedicated to Heard for his //Dart to the Heart// album, "​Closer to the Light."​ [[Daniel Amos]] dedicated their album //​MotorCycle//​ to Heard in 1993, and [[The Swirling Eddies]] dedicated //Zoom Daddy// to Heard the same year. Julie Miller also wrote a song in tribute to Heard called "All My Tears" which has also been recorded by [[Jars of Clay]], Emmylou Harris (studio and live versions) and Selah with Kim Hill.
 +
 +In 2000, a group of fans gathered together to help [[Fingerprint Records]] release //Mystery Mind//, the first collection of previously unreleased material from the songwriter (see above). There were plans to release a full length collection that same year, but those plans never came to fruition.
 +
 +In 2002, the Cornerstone Music Festival held a songwriting contest in honor of Heard. The following year, Paste Magazine released //Hammers and Nails//, a CD of previously unreleased recordings by Heard (see above). An authorized biography of the same name was also released by Cornerstone Press, written by Matthew T. Dickerson.
 +
 +The Americana Music Association held its annual Americana Music Honors & Awards at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, Tennessee, September 2005. The Song of the Year Award was presented to Mark Heard for "Worry Too Much" (originally featured on //Second Hand//). Buddy Miller, who performed the track on //Universal United House of Prayer//, accepted the award on behalf of Heard. Miller also received the award for Album of the Year for //Universal United House of Prayer//.
 +
 +In Paste Magazine No. 22 June/July 2006 - a Special Collector'​s Issue featuring the 100 Best Living Songwriters - Mark Heard was remembered as well under the heading //Wish You Were Here//: "Mark Heard'​s lyrics are weighted with such a wry longing that they'​ll forever reflect a fresh turbulence."​
 +
 +[[Pierce Pettis]] and Ralston Bowles have covered a song by Mark Heard on each of their albums released since Heard’s death.
 +
 +In 2017, an 18-song retrospective,​ //Mark Heard: Treasure of the Broken Land//, was released. It focuses on Heard'​s last three albums and features Rodney Crowell, Buddy Miller, [[Over the Rhine]] and others. Produced by Phil Madeira, a member of Emmylou Harris'​ backing band Red Dirt Boys, the album received notable attention from Rolling Stone Magazine and other mainstream magazines like premier Americana music magazine //No Depression//​.
