Biography

Here we are now…

Introducing the third Messiah J & The Expert album, From The Word Go.


So what’s changed?

Well, over the last few years a lot has changed. The news is jam-packed with wars, job losses, elections, early budgets, recessions, climate change and all manners of global socio-political realities. So, where the last Messiah J & The Expert album, the Choice Music Prize-nominated Now This I Have To Hear dealt with personal relationships, writer’s block and tennis, From The Word Go questions the state of the world we live in today. Not that Messiah J & The Expert consider themselves authorities on politics or the environment or any other issues like these, MJEX would be the first to hold their hands up and admit they don’t have the answers but that doesn’t stop them from asking questions or wondering about the madness that happens around us every day. The songs on From The Word Go are about every day things, good and bad, all set against the backdrop of a pretty confused world and it’s people.


What about the music?

Effectively, it’s a greatest hits album made of entirely new material. As always, Messiah J & The Expert were soaking up a library worth of music while making From The Word Go and that’s evident in the way MJEX take a ride from one genre to the next in twelve infectious steps. There’s the funk-tastic first single, Megaphone Man, the reggae-tinged Amnesia Comes Easily, the disco-soul of Turn The Magic On and the psychedelic march of Looking For A Long Term Thing.
