Take equal measures of rock, pop and a splash of jazz, then pour it into a chilled Martini glass. That about describes It's All In The Mind.
It's All In The Mind started in 2012 with Mark David Stallard and Ryan Janz playing a mix of pop folk and jazz. Over the years they worked with several musicians reaching their current form with the arrival of Jared Adams in 2021 and Brennan in 2022.
Having performed hundreds of shows, CDs, and dozens of original singles under their belt, this energetic and entertaining hard-hitting rock, pop (with a hint of) jazz band are ready to rock a venue near you.
Mark David Stallard (lead vocals and guitar) has been writing songs since the early 1980s, when he performed in pubs and clubs along the south coast of England. Stallard's solo work has been licensed to Shaw Television Ltd and also reached the semi-finals of the UK Songwriting Contest. Mark is also an accomplished animator and writer.
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.
Jared Adams (vocals and lead guitar) has been performing in Winnipeg since 2006 with a wide range of projects. In 2020 he released his solo CD, Tragic Nostalgia, an eclectic and unexpected mix of alt-rock, self-reflective folk, and layered, bombastic pop hooks. With his inventive guitar licks and kinetic energy, he often steals the show.
Brennan Saul (drums) is originally from BC. His skills with the pagan skins has brought him invites to play with many great bands. He can pick up the beat in nanoseconds and he owns the groove before the song has even started.
