MRR is an independent label distributing songs by in-house writer/ producer Tre Carn performed by various studio musicians and interchanging lead vocalists. Including Athena Sorensen (The Little Things), Blend (A Lovers Christmas), Athena Dawn (The Merry Shout), David Brodie (December 24th One Night) and John Leslie Long (Jesus Ways).
As far as songwriting, ideas can come from anywhere, personal experiences, current events, people watching, listening to music, reading the bible, etc;. Inspiration is all around us.
Our music encompasses many genres of music, Soul, Christian, Gospel, Southern Rock, Pop and Country. Lyrically we try to take a cinematic approach to writing and sometimes break the rules by writing simultaneously in the first and third person. If Stevie Nicks says there's no rules then there's no rules.
Some writers who've influenced us are Billy Joel, Smokey Robinson, Leiber & Stoller, Carole King, Leon Sylvers, The Mighty Sparrow, Barrett Strong, James Taylor, Rob Thomas, Babyface, Prince, Holland Dozier Holland, Bob Marley, Gamble & Huff, Bruno Mars, John Fogerty, David Gates, Stevie Wonder, Rakim, Shel Silverstein, John Sebastian, Vic Mizzy, John Fogerty, Freddie Perren, Randy Newman
