We love when new music finds it’s way to us.

Infused with nostalgic whispers of Chet Baker and Michael Buble – The Joker is collecting hearts one beat at a time. This debut collaboration born from the talents of kindred spirits Lawrence Grey and Mick Evans – a natural fit in perfect time. Their EP The Joker is a glimpse of the bright musical moments to come from this songwriting duo.

Ben Mankiewicz – Turner Classic Movies

“There will never be another era, quite like the golden age of Hollywood. We didn’t know how to blow up buildings – so instead we told great stories.”

Turner Classic Movies infinitely rich with history, and rightfully so is it’s charismatic host Ben Mankiewicz. With his unique contemporary style and off the cuff banter – he says viewers did not readily embrace him during early days in that big leather chair.

What’s the secret to his success?

 ‘I’ve stayed true to myself and what I do best, and hey – nobody can read a teleprompter quite like I can.’

A  pleasure talking to this fascinating man with the golden job. Find out why he hopes this gig will go on forever.

Mick Evans – The Other Half Of The Joker

“Songwriting has really blossomed for me. You know I think you know when you know, when you’ve found what you really love doing. I rarely get bored of doing it – do struggle to find time for it – but it’s a real joy.”

It seems the key to life may be found inside taking time to ‘sit quietly with me’ and let the inner stirrings of your heart wash over.
Writing is, as true a gift, as looking up at the breath taking colours of a perfect summer sky, the touch of your forever love imprinting on your soul or the emotions that pass inside while witnessing the power of the human spirit. For whom might ever help us to vocalize these precious moments but the unspoken voice of a writer.

I met Mick Evans on a warm summer day when the stars crossed over a big wide sky from Canada to England.
His is a story of finding what you love and letting it be your guide to the very place you are meant to be.
A successful business man by day and a writer who is connecting his thoughts through collaboration of melody and a lot of hard work.

So proud of this British gent who is an award winning lyric writer with a heart of gold, who can make you laugh out loud when you least expect it.
It is no wonder that Nashville songwriting coach Mark Cawley saw something special in Mick and it was a brilliant move to team him up with German native Lawrence Grey.

Their debut EP – The Joker releases this week and I know there is lots more coming for this dynamic duo.

Have a peek through Mick’s lyric page and listen to some of his demos and recorded music.
