The cover of "What was Made for Weathering" features a house Marks once lived in that was made of barge-wood and had floated down the Mississippi river. Since they couldn't send the barges back upriver for repeat use, they were often disassembled and restructured into shotgun houses. What was a boat can become a house. What was a house can laid low, or turned into something else entirely: songs of loss, hope, love, change and transformation.

Says the Austin American Statesman:

"A singer-songwriter and sideman with roots in New Orleans, Marks brings some of that city’s jazz elements to this graceful 11-song collection of acoustic-based material. "
