Google defines the word "busy" as: Actively and attentively engaged in work. Husband & wife duo, Mark and Jay O'SHEA have indeed been "busy." Between writing and recording their much anticipated third album, starring in their own television show on Foxtel's CMC, hosting the QANTAS in-flight radio show "Big Country", preparing for their upcoming Australian tour and headlining appearance at this year's Gympie Muster, and getting set to release their brand new single ‘Bad Day Good’.
"It's not work if you love what you do!” says Mark O'Shea. It's exactly that kind of infectious enthusiasm that emanates from the up-tempo new single, co-written with and featuring multi-CMA and GRAMMY Award winner, Steve Wariner."We sat down to write a tear-jerker but we didn't realize we'd be crying laughing. It was just so much fun!" says Jay of working with the acclaimed guitar slinger. "We are both huge fans of Steve's work particularly his 1993 record DRIVE. I wore that thing out!" adds Mark.
“I truly am the lucky one… getting to write, then record, with the mega talented duo O'SHEA” said Steve. “They keep me on my toes (and keep me smiling!), not only musically but all the way around. Mark and Jay are great people who make great music”. The collaboration has been well worth it and the track which O'SHEA co-produced with Mark Moffatt and Ilya Toshinsky is already being touted as a feel good anthem.
