Album Notes
Second Person was formed in early 2002 and comprises singer/pianist Julia Johnson, producer/bassist Mark Maclaine and drummer Al Lopez. This band brings together elements of Hip-Hop, Jazz, Drum’n’Bass and Rock fusing them with strong song writing to form a unique sound that is Post Trip-Hop.

Described as “The next big thing” by The Independant (UK): this English three-piece contrast beautiful vocals with dark bass lines, sublime piano riffs and powerful beats. Their emotive song-writing style, killer hooks and distinctly lo-fi sound has lent itself perfectly to picture and their music credits include a set of feature film scores, work for numerous international broadcasters and film companies.

Second Person are as good live as they are recorded, capturing the beauty and emotion of their songs whilst not loosing the complex sound-scapes and space that have defined their sound.

Amazing Album!
Just stunning work! It took a while to grow on me, but I kept hearing these guys on TV and seeing reviews everywhere so I gave it another try and now I just can't stop listening to the album. Can't wait for the second album!

Fernando ("chuco")

just listen to "Demons in the Scenery"...amazing
This cd is pretty damn good...hip hop, eerie rhythm, and a hauntingly beautiful voice...all you need to hear is "demons in the scenery" and you'll be hooked...


Everyone should own this CD
This CD is amazing. Everyone should own it. Second Person has an awesome, yet unique sound that is at times jazz, at times hip-hop and just generally amazing. I was hooked after the first song and I bet you will be too!!


Hmmmm.... I like it!!!!!!!!!!!

just hope for more music from Second Person!! Loved this CD and for sure I am gonna get the next one! And just waiting for some vacation to go to London and see these guys jammin there!!!

Much of the music that makes it to TV and radio really sucks. The music press go on about how amazing it all is: how the latest pop album will change my life or this sound-the-same-as-everyone-else rock band is the next big thing etc etc. In the 90s when I heard a band was good I would go out and buy their cd, often it was great but in the last 10 years everything has got so much worse but the reviews seem to have got better... now I just don't bother reading music magazines any more, listening to the radio or watching music tv. I find CDs by seeing what my friends are listening to and talking to people who's musical opinion I trust... One band that a lot of my friends seemed to like was some British band Second Person. We only had CD-R copies (with only the first 8 tracks) and no way of getting it here... then I saw it on iTunes and then here on CDBaby and I had to get a copy. Amazing! I opened it up today and it's not going to leave my car stereo for at least the next 6 months. Her voice is just amazing and the whole sound is so honest and real. There should be more music out there like this! I love it.

Michael Walters

Great record
What a great record! I'd never really got into bands like Portishead or Massive Attack - or any of the other bands that people say these guys remind them of. I can see similarities (tracks like I Spy) but this album really has a whole different feel to those other bands, it’s got quite an open sound to the drums and keys and there is a great sense that everything has been sang/played with such feeling and passion. I like the order of the tracks too, sort of a progression from dark to light as you go through the album. It’s an album I can sit down and listen to over and over again and each time find a new sound or instrument that I’d never heard before. I love the album more now than ever! If I ever met the band I'd have to shake them firmly by the hand and say thank you for writing this work of art.

Andrew Barron

An amazing album
This album is one of the most amazing CDs I've bought in years. Beautiful lyrics, stunningly understated production and great melodies. At the risk of sounding pathetic - I've been to parties, heard it playing and been unable to concentrate on conversation. I can't recommend it highly enough.


this is amazing, i never thought any band could come up with such incredible music, everyone must buy it now!!!!!


OH MY GOODNESS PEOPLE! if you dont buy this album it will be the biggest mistake of your whole entire life!!! its amazing! the music is so chilling and very refreshing :) plus my big bro is Mark Mclaine so i gotta love it! but seriously if you dont listen to it you are missing out and im not just saying that, if you havent got this have never lived! xxcat
