Listen to “The Long Way” on all streaming platforms:
Buoyed by steadfast determination and undeniable talent, Mark Ambor is emerging as one of this year’s most exciting new artists. The 23-year-old New York native is a self-taught guitarist, producer and vocalist, and has been playing piano since the age of 7. While music has been a constant throughout his life, this past year has been the most defining for Ambor as an artist. By sharing a variety of demos and covers on social media, he has rapidly captured the hearts of fans who are eager to hear more from him. In October 2020, he had just 2000 Instagram followers and has now grown his audience to 238K on Instagram and 236K on TikTok.
His first single since his viral success, “The Long Way” is Ambor’s third release and follows “Fever” and “It’s Us Again,” both of which performed impressive streaming numbers. On “The Long Way,” catchy guitar riffs and propulsive percussion form the perfect foundation for Ambor’s polished vocals to flourish. His positive take on life glows from within the track as he shares a message about patience and how “truly good things take a long time” but are “worth it in the end.”
Explaining the inspiration behind the track, Ambor writes, “many of us have that person in our lives that no matter how much time has passed, every time you see them and every time you talk to them, it feels like nothing has changed. I found myself in that place of wanting more than just a friendship with that person, but knowing, for a few reasons, that for the time being we were better off as friends. ‘The Long Way’ is about that underlying feeling that things will work out one day with that person.”
