Husband and wife, Mark and Lisa have been followers of Meher Baba since the 70s and 80s respectively. They are tremendously gifted professional singers and musicians who tour the country playing music for a host of different audiences.
With this new CD offering they focus their songwriting and performing talents on songs of heartfelt praise, dedicated to their Beloved Master, Meher Baba. The CD is primarily Mark's originals (six on this CD), a few standards with new lyrics written and sung by Lisa, and a couple of fun instrumentals tossed in to the mix. Also a version of a song by Ron Greenstein, “Listen to the Voice of the Heart”/lyrics by Meher Baba, makes an even dozen songs. The effect is both infectious and inspiring. The blend of their voices in harmony is so seamless that it evokes memories of early Everly Brothers recordings.
Additionally, Lisa and Mark are each multi-instrumentalists who demonstrate their musical skills in a variety of ways, especially on mandolin (Mark) and fiddle (Lisa). The songs themselves are beautiful and uplifting, with several standouts coming from the pen of Mark Trichka. The title track is just one extremely catchy example of Mark's superb songwriting skills. The overall feeling is one of joyful devotion, accompanied by a combination of expert musicianship and spiritual sincerity.
Mark and Lisa's mandolin and fiddle, can also be heard on many Baba musician's recordings including those of Jamie Newell, Buz Connor, Cindy Lowe, Bobbi Bernstein, Jim Meyers and others.
