Mark J. Nyvlt is a Canadian singer-song writer. Born in Ottawa, but traveled extensively around the world. Coming from an international family, he was exposed to the pulse of international matters at an early age. Schooled at Canterbury High School for the Arts (Classical guitar), Nyvlt was fortunate enough to witness a rich array of talent in all the fields of the Arts. Sadly, Nyvlt put the guitar down for a very long 15 years while pursuing his studies and his Ph.D. in Ancient Greek Philosophy at Boston University. He now compensates for this loss of time. Now, a permanent professor of Ancient Greek Philosophy at the Dominican University (Ottawa), he continues to integrate philosophical themes into his songs, along with the political and quotidian events of life. He performs regularly in Ottawa and collaborates with the very talented community of musicians in Ottawa.
