“Singer/guitarist Mark Vennis has recorded a sonic tribute to Portsmouth,
in the form of Uncharted Water, Faded Glory And Other Stories, telling
tales of a life lived on the other side of the Gosport ferry route...
a sort of South Coast cousin to the likes of Born To Run.”

“They are songs about me and you, us, our society and our lives.. just
the same as in America, mirroring songs by John Mellencamp and Bruce Springsteen.. I believe we can all relate, whether you are in Portsmouth,
UK or my hometown of Thunder Bay, Canada.
...all together, this is good music worth checking out.”

“An ode to the highs and lows of growing up near Portsmouth,
Portsdown Hill
is a soulful/indie rock 'n' roll track from
Mark Vennis and his band, Different Place. This is the real deal.”
Vive le Rock Magazine

“There is a raw honestness to the album which gives it a
vibe that captures the ethos of Cash and Clash”
