Tony Alonso and Michael Mahler cross currents on their exciting new recording Songs from Another Room. The range and versatility between these two young GIA artists surges with a palpable energy that only this kind of chemistry creates. Armed with only acoustic instruments, Alonso and Mahler deliver electric performances on songs like "My Savior, Your Son," and "Te Ensalzaré.” The beautifully crafted lyrics of "My Love Will Be Waiting for You" tells the compelling story of the prodigal son while the emotional musical setting of "And Jesus Said" paints Shirley Erena Murray's gorgeous text in passionate colors of consolation. The pinnacle of this recording is surely "Were I the Perfect Child of God." John Bell's provocative poetry is perfectly fused with an exquisite tune from an old Scottish love song. Songs from Another Room is a must have. It's acoustic music with a positive charge!
