Mark Wynter

Mark Wynter was born Terence Sidney Lewis on 29 January 1943 and decided to change his name when he began performing to lessen the confusion with the American comedian, Jerry Lewis.

Exclusively Yours became Mark’s fourth UK Top 40 hit and his final one for Decca before moving to Pye where he scored the biggest hit of his career with Venus In Blue Jeans.

This was the closing track on his 1961 album, The Warmth Of Wynter that was released after his round the world tour ending up in Australia where he was virtually unknown but five weeks later left to a fanfare of acclamation and two records in their top ten.

He enjoyed a lengthy career from 1960 to 1968 as a pop singer and teen idol but developed later into an actor in film, musicals and plays.
