Mark Holst, also known by his stage name Maverik, is an up-and-coming musical artist and lyricist from Westchester, NY.
Holst stepped into the world of music as a tag-along little brother trying to keep up with his older siblings. The Holst brother’s are part of the rap sub-culture in White Plains and in an effort to be good enough to hang with the big boys, Holst began to work obsessively at developing his style and craft. Ever eager to see what his brothers were up to, he began to accompany them to studio sessions, and watched closely, later emulating what he saw in notebooks and in front of the mirror. As Holst’s writing abilities developed his brothers took note and soon gave respect to the burgeoning young lyricist. At the age of 15, Holst recorded his first song and it wasn’t long after that he began to use the growing access to production quality software to produce his own tracks.
Holst has gone on to release several mix-tapes, and has developed his name and personal music brand through the youth culture in the north New York Metro Area. Holst has gained notoriety for his witty lyrics and strong-hearted mentality. He is known throughout the area as a hard working talent, ready to bury himself musical projects whether for himself or as a guest musician.
The gifted young musician is also well known for his focus. Holst has delved into the world of audio and video editing – often serving as a creative consultant to other area musicians. His particular brand of eagerness has put Holst behind the camera and microphone as often as in front, with him shooting, directing, and editing videos.
In the past year it is clear the Holst has grown into his own style of hip-hop. He is recognized for his witty punch lines, intense use of tone, and ability to apply to a wide array of genres. The ever evolving Holst has recently released a series of mix-tapes, including ‘Pre-Game’, ‘Through The Roof’, ‘Second Time Around’, and ‘Blown Speakers.’ As of 2012, he is working on several projects with multiple producers and studios in New York.
