Marty is currently in the studio writing his own new music, as well as new music with songwriters Tamada and Takada (who penned the latest Aikawa Nanase single, "Ai No Uta"). Says Marty, "The 3 of us have a great vibe and these tunes are exactly what I have been wanting to write for a long time, well constructed, harder edged j-pop/rock with very strong melodies and space to let the guitar sing as well."

You will be hearing their collaborations sometime in '04!
