The input of passion Marion has for song-writing, and the collaborating opportunities they are taking up with other artists, is opening up a whole new dimension of Johnny’s music.

He is currently working on writing more original songs with Marion for his next album. “Cowboys Come Alive After Five” being the first to be released.
