Known as a rock group with an enigmatic side, MJM's new single ‘Dogs Of War’ has exploded on radio and put this group on the world map.

There is something special happening with MJM, the talented rock group out of Toronto, Canada. A firm believer in the time-honored tradition of composition and careful attention to detail, MJM's work demonstrates how personal and affecting music can be when the right elements come together. This legitimacy is discernible from other angles. They have a deep understanding of the techniques and traditions of the rock genre which is perhaps why the critics had this to say about their award-winning work: ‘MJM's vocal overtones limn this melancholy alt-rocker with an almost palpable sense of distance - an adroit nuance to a highly charismatic cut.’ Reporter Blake Wright recently caught up with this talented group to learn more about their unique story and their plans for the future.
