MJM, Canada’s own best kept secret is fronted by Michael J. Miller, previously from Toronto’s “Rapid Tears”, (Chameleon Records, Canada) and “Adrenalin” (Long Island Records, Germany). MJM’s songwriting is driven by
Michael’s virtuoso guitar playing and his searing vocals. Zsolt Henczely on bass, formerly of Reckless and Candle Opera, provides the thundering rhythm section accompanied by drummer, studio engineer & producer, Tom Eakin/Tom Atom.
