Based out of New York City, MJ is a brother/sister pop duo.
Mariya sings lead vocal while John serves as producer, provides background vocals, and plays guitar. Their combination of songwriting talent and amazing vocal ability creates an unusual team not seen in the modern music world.
Mariya's voice flows effortlessly through each track liking her to Avril Lavigne or Kelly Clarkson. She brings a powerful personality that only enhances her versatility and addicting voice quality. John's previous experience as a singer/songwriter gained national exposure through both TV (Dawson's Creek) and print (Music Connection).
MJ recently released I'm Not Gone, the follow-up to their debut EP No History. MJ's songwriting and musical production reflects their maturity as a group and as individuals.
