The Real Deal

The Real Deal

A song about connection, longing and trust in those who are most important to us.

Two-Way Mirror

Two-Way Mirror

Often we find ourselves rejecting our darker parts – deeming them as unacceptable, unworthy and unloveable. In reality, this imperfection makes us human. We paint our shadow side with weakness rather than strength, failing to recognise vulnerability as the foundation for intimacy; the honest, deep connection with others that deep down, we all crave.

Filled with shame, we find ways to numb from who we truly are – or, more so, the version of ourselves the inner critic paints. Addiction, distraction, using social media to show only our good sides – running from ourselves leads to running from others; isolating when we aren’t able to shine only our brightest light.

The song draws inspiration from Carl Jung’s theory of the shadow self combined with the phenomenon of a two-way mirror. A repressed self is encased in the thin metal layer inside the mirror, forming the surface that when brightly lit on one side, masks the darker counterpart.

We are not defined by our flaws, our illness, our weakness – even when we feel imprisoned by them, unable to see where reality ends and fantasy begins. Yet embracing and connecting to these hidden parts allow us to be fully whole and present – with both ourselves and others.

‘Two-Way Mirror’ comments on this universal experience, a realisation that sometimes the walls we build are no longer protective, but destructive – depriving us of self-acceptance, authentic connection, and living an un-fragmented life.

Like the Sun

Like the Sun

Whoa. Did we just get a collaboration from John Mayer and Bruno Major? At first listen it seems that way, but John Turri’s “Like the Sun” is the refreshing track you’ve been missing. It’s lush vocals, moody keys, and entrancing guitars will make for the perfect soundtrack in various life situations. Definitely give it a spin and go for a drive, or poor some sangria at home and relax. This stellar composition is so versatile and has a groove that will feed your musical soul.
