More than four decades after John Lennon wrote "All you need is Love", JohnLen release their new album "It's Only Love".
The name JohnLen is actually a combination of the names of this duo: John & Len. That the Beatles have been an influence to their music is without doubt true, but the same can be said of Bob Marley. Rock, Reggae, Soul, they all play their part in the music of JohnLen. The best way to describe JohnLen's music is melody and groove. "We always have these two things in mind when we compose our songs. Our melodies flourish on a groovy rhythmic base."
On "It's Only Love" , JohnLen present 10 songs. All, in one way or another, deal with love. Songs that were recorded, mixed and mastered in their own studio. John & Len played all the instruments themselves, did all the vocals, created the drum-loops and made the arrangements. "Writing songs is what we love to do, and see them grow during the recording process is something wonderful."
JohnLen are long time friends, and "It's Only Love" is a product of that friendship. "You can only produce good songs and good music, if you are able to listen to the other and to be inspired by the other, and that is exactly how our songs are born. One comes with an idea, and the other adds something else and this can repeat itself various times. And so a song is created as a result of interactive inspiration.
It's Only Love is also a statement: "We think the world needs love, it is the only answer, the world couldn't exist without love. And in the world of today, in which people have to struggle with individualism, selfishness, intolerance, hate etc... there is a big need to come together and share some love. We are are eager to share our record and some love with the world"
