A Chicago native, Mark Allen Felton aka Panther drew upon a wealth of influences from Jazz to Gospel. At the tender age of 11 he began an artistic journey inspired by such musical greats as Earth Wind & Fire, Sonny Stitt and Kool & the Gang, eventually performing with giants of the industry and learning from his mentor Grover Washington Jr. By the time he graduated from high school, Felton had received numerous awards for his musical excellence including a scholarship to Texas Southern University in Houston, TX.

Playing for political dignitaries such as: Secretary Hillary Clinton, Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, Congresswoman Maxine Waters, civil rights leader Julian Bond, and L.A. Mayors Antonio Villaraigosa and Eric Garcetti. He was, for many years, the go-to artist to perform the National Anthem at the L.A. County Board of Supervisors Annual African American Heritage Month Celebration.

This gifted artist has had the honor of performing alongside some of the most revered musicians in the world including: Al Jarreau, Patti Labelle, Kirk Whalum, Najee, Gerald Albright, Bobby Womack, Billy Preston, Marcus Miller, Mindy Abair, Boney James, Rick Braun, and more. His two Gospel CDs have earned him two Stellar Award nominations and the 2004 Instrumentalist of the Year by the Southern California Gospel Announcers Guild.
