M-VA was formed in September 1991 and have done a handful of gigs and outreaches locally. The band came together to bring a Christian message to as many people as possible and have recently devoted their time to make Turn Around'. "Garden Of Eden" starts the ball rolling with interesting sound effects and atmospheric backing vocals from Emma Arscott and Paul Graham Mews, the lead singer being Beth Vickers. "With Him We'll Be" is a great ballad accompanied by acoustic guitar. The chorus of "Amen" will reverberate around your brain and off your lips all day! Paul, singing the lead on "Turn Around", has written all the songs himself with the exception of "Take My Hand" where he was helped by Beth. "Pray For Me" is wonderful and "The Day" wraps up what I think is a good, well balanced first album quite nicely. Well worth a listen.
