Mark Trammell began his singing career in the 1970s with the Senators. He joined the Kingsmen Quartet in 1978 to play bass guitar. For a short period in 1979 between the departure of Squire Parsons and the arrival of Wayne Maynard, he also sang baritone for the Kingsmen. In 1980, Mark was hired to sing baritone and play bass guitar for the Cathedral Quartet, replacing Steve Lee. He would remain with the Cathedrals for the next decade.

Mark left the Cathedrals in 1990 to form the group Greater Vision with another former Cathedral, Gerald Wolfe. He left Greater Vision in 1993 and joined Gold City, where he remained for ten years. He left in 2003 to form the Mark Trammell Trio, later called the Mark Trammell Quartet.

Mark Trammell is also a songwriter with compositions recorded by many Southern Gospel artists.
