In the eye of the hurricane:

It’s chaos out there.  If we take the bait, we can get carried away.  But there’s an eye in the hurricane.  A place where it’s calm, still and safe.  This batch of songs from MJ and Mark explore that safe place.  That place we can all turn to.

The song Sleepwalker beckons us to wake up from our mindless habitual state.  We don’t have to sleep thru life.  We can choose to wake up.  So wake up!   Love Said is a conversation with love.  Have you ever actually spoken to love??  Get Out of My Head is just that. Get out of my head.  Get into my heart – where it matters.  Stop f*^king around.  And Drunken Flower is what we can become.   Sounds like fun, right


‘Sing True’

Songs from the heart

In a world that loves to focus on negativity, MJ and Mark point us to the positive – the light inside. Without being preachy, themes of redemption, love and light weave through infectious pop tunes.  Light and breezy ‘Sweet Spot’ sings to us that we can sidestep disaster by remaining in the eye of our own hurricane.  ‘Sing True‘ is sung to a newborn reminding us to stay true to our hearts.  MJ’s evocative vocals welcome these songs into your ears and hearts.  Sharing a common thread, each is it’s own sonic animal: no chasing trends here.
