Mark Kibble

Mark Winston Kibble was born on April 7, 1964, in The Bronx, NY. His early childhood was spent in Hempstead, NY, Bridgeport, CT, Boston, MA, and by 1970, Buffalo, NY, where he spent most of his childhood. There he would meet Claude McKnight and his many brothers, and begin taking care of his baby brother, Joey, along with his older sister Michelle.

It can be said that most of Kibble's early musical influence happened in Buffalo, where his father pastored a very musical church. By 1976, he moved to Nashville, TN, and soon after, he went away to high school at Oakwood Academy. There he met Mervyn Warren and began working with him and others on many musical projects. This would lead right up to the famous bathroom rehearsal at Oakwood College during the fall of 1980, where he would once again meet up with Claude. And the rest is history!

Kibble has always been very athletic, playing football, softball, and basketball in Buffalo and adding Ping-Pong and track by the time he reached Oakwood Academy. He still loves to play sports at any opportunity. From a very young age, he has also been into bodybuilding, and now it is his mainstay if he can do nothing else.

Kibble has always been one to work with his hands, fixing, building, and tinkering with mechanics. For his 8th-grade project, he made a cardboard model of the "new" (and at that time unbuilt) elementary school that he was attending, which won first place. This led to working with family and friends who were contractors, thus learning the skills of hard labor in construction. While in college, he concentrated on the electrical trade with his great-uncle Alfred, who was the electrician for the school. He still loves to take on projects that require this skill.

His electrical trade coupled with his musical skill led him to build a recording studio that he now owns with his brother Joey. Vertical Sound Studio is where Take 6 does some of its projects and where Joey and/or Kibble produce other projects. So now running a studio and engineering are two more hats that he wears.

In the world of music, Kibble has produced and performed on many other projects, including the gospel group Virtue, Donnie McClurkin, Angie Winans, CeCe Winans, his wife Sherrie's group, Addae, and many others. Often, he and Joey will team up and do projects for artists like Allen & Allen and Ben Tankard. He also teams up with David Thomas and works as an arranger and vocal coach for The Backstreet Boys. From time to time, he does vocal coaching on an individual basis as well.

Kibble is a man of many hats, and even raising dogs is one of his loves. He has two Alaskan Malamutes that look like wolves but are as gentle as teddy bears (most of the time). However, one of his most important roles is being a father to Chloe and Ryan (ages 5 and 3 at present) and, of course, a husband to his wife, Sherrie. This happens to be one of his favorite jobs.

Kibble is truly thankful for all of his jobs, hats, and loves. But without a strong love for his Savior, Jesus Christ, none of this would be possible. This love is NUMBER ONE!!!
