'Right is Wrong. Wrong is right. Truths are Lies. Lies are Truth. Good is punished. Evil is rewarded. Up is Down. Down is Up. In is Out. Out is In. The Whole Wide World Is Upside Down. For the next hour we will do our best to keep things Right side Up'. This is from the intro to our live performances and describes how we feel about our music as it relates to the world in which we live. Recorded in the spring of 2009, this album is both a culmination and a new beginning for a musical partnership which has spanned 25 years. Jim Wright and Mike DeHays have been writing, recording and performing music together since 1984 and are more inspired and creative than ever these days. The songs are inspired by everyday life experiences including love, peace, happiness, challenges and God's never ending grace. We truly enjoy melody, harmony and rhythm and strive to give each it's rightful place in concert with one another, not as stand alone devices. Hopefully our little tinge of musical OCD will appeal to your ears, your mind and your spirit. It is our honor and pleasure to offer this music to you, our listener. We know full well that it is you who allows us the opportunity to create and perform our music. We are very grateful for every listen you give us. Kind regards, A Minor Influence.
