THE FULL BIO:
Individually Mark and Jay O’Shea have an impressive string of writing and artist credits that span the globe. The combination of Jay’s country-soul voice blending perfectly with Mark’s country-rock sensibilities has made the Nashville based husband-and-wife team one of the most respected names in Australian country music in just a few short years.
Their debut album ‘Mr. and Mrs.’ produced four #1 Country singles and earned them the 2012 CMAA “Golden Guitar” Award for New Talent of the Year. They are set for new heights in 2013 with the release of their second album “One + One”. With production by legendary ex-pat Mark Moffatt (The Saints, Tim Finn), ‘One + One’ showcases brilliantly their incredible vocal talents and skills as hit songwriters.
The pair co-wrote the album with a string of renowned collaborators including Billy Burnette (Fleetwood Mac, John Fogerty, Bob Dylan), Tim Nichols (Alan Jackson, Tim McGraw, Faith Hill), Kevin Kadish (Jason Mraz) and Kim Carnes (”Bette Davis Eyes”).
The depth in the writing stands out on ‘One + One’. “Thank You Angels” was inspired by Mark’s experiences with open heart surgery in 2010, a procedure he had previously undergone as a six month old child. “Be With You Tonight” was born out of the pair spending months apart on opposite sides of the world, chasing their career dreams. “It Never Goes Away”, a co-write with Billy Burnette, tells a tale of loss with a timeless sound that harks back to the great ballads of Roy Orbison.
‘One + One’ is a record that is more than just the sum of its individual parts, it’s a stunning body of work that is set to become an instant classic.

Sara Hunt

A splendid album from this husband and wife duo
Husband and wife duo Mark and Jay O’Shea have been successful artists and songwriters since moving to Nashville. Most notably they were finalists in the Country Music Television series Can You Duet. Having individual successes before pairing up the couple have opened for top country acts such as Sara Evans and Phil Vassar. O’Shea’s music blends modern country music with pop to create a fresh uplifting sound. The album kicks off with a lovely country song This Could Be Our Year. Perhaps perfectly titled, this album could see O’Shea making it big and becoming household names in the world of country music. Both Jay and Mark take turns on vocals giving the song an interesting dynamic. Be With You Tonight is a beautiful country song. Jay and Mark’s vocals blend wonderfully together. Both sound strong and distinctive. Thank You Angels is a pop infused country song. Jay’s vocals are powerful and captivating on this rather splendid track that definitely deserves some airplay. Red Lights And Last Names sees both Jay and Mark share the vocals once again. Empty is a powerful bluesy country song with Jay demonstrating her wonderful vocal skills. Jay has a lovely voice well worth listening to as echoed here in this tremendous song. It Never Goes Away is a slow delicate country song. Jay and Mark harmonize wonderfully together here. Dancing In The Minefields is another lovely song brought to life with excellent vocals packed full of emotion. The lyrics of this song are worth a close listen. Look Down On The Stars is a rousing country/pop song. Mark’s vocals are brought centre stage on this song. Fresh and upbeat this is rather charming. Missing Miracles is an outstanding song. It is worth buying a copy of this album just for this amazing song alone. Wonderful vocals from Mark and Jay give this song depth and emotion. The Swimming Song is a fun, upbeat song with cheery and somewhat amusing lyrics. Wish You The Worst is a dramatic song with a heavy edge. The backing instrumentation is powerful and rousing. With a rocky feel this song is definitely another track worthy of some airplay. There’s No Place Like Home is more of a traditional country song. The title track is also the final offering on this outstanding album. One + One is a great song to end the album on. Lovely vocals once again make this a stand out song. All in all this is an album of fine songs sung with lovely, luscious vocals. If you like modern country that is of a high standard then this album will suit you down to the ground.
