Something New Under The Sun is the first release for record label Piano and All That Jazz. The album, featuring lyricist/vocalist Mark Stevens and composer/pianist Steven Cravis, was released on March 6, 2009 on iTunes, coinciding with The Faith of Britain Day when millions of people across the globe united in prayer and meditation simultaneously for two minutes at 11:00 AM Greenwich time.
Mark Stevens and Steven Cravis reside in San Francisco and met in a piano retail store where Stevens worked as a salesman. With little discussion they agreed to collaborate, the result being fourteen original music compositions and song lyrics comprising Something New Under The Sun. The song “Father” tells of a grown man’s desire to express his love for his parent. “Tears of Joy” is a powerful anthem extolling the virtues of a nation. “Snowfall Sunrise” proclaims the beauty and majesty of nature in its most harsh season. Stevens’ frank vocals and Cravis’ subtle pianism are a compelling tandem throughout the compilation. The lyrics are flush with refinement.
Piano and All That Jazz is a record label headquartered in San Francisco, CA.
