Take equal measures of pop and jazz add a splash of folk, then pour it into a chilled Martini glass. That about describes It's All In The Mind.
"Feels a bit Barenaked Ladies," wrote one reviewer, "yet an updated version."
Another wrote, "Very sweet and charming jazzy, easy grooving..."
Who could argue with that?
Mark David Stallard, vocalist and guitarist) has been writing songs since the early 1980s, when he performed in pubs and clubs along the south coast of England.

Ryan Janz, bassman extraordinaire, provides melodic bass lines that saunter, rather than walk. But Ryan is more than just an inventive bassist, he is also co-writer on many of It's All In The Mind's songs, including their first single "I'm Alive." Ryan has worked with many Winnipeg artists and bands, both on stage and in the studio.
