Hi John, was wondering who the back up singer is on the Disconnect Album? Not only does she have a great voice, she is strikingly beautiful! One more ? if you don't mind, what was the inspiration for the song "Mary Will"? Just asking. It is so great to hear music like your John. I love it!
Take care Man.

Thanks Neil.... her Name is Geri X, https://www.facebook.com/GeriXofficial she is a stunning talent.
Mary Will is loosely based on on the idea of someone who has gone to far and alienated themselves from those they love, finding only a statue of Mary in a Garden as his only hope, the only one that won't turn away from him...
thanks for enjoying... JW
Hi John You made porcupine tree what they are .. tremendous legacy .. great guitar work ... when are you getting back together again ? :)John Wesley responded on 03/17/2015 Next question
Hey John, question for you. As someone getting into a band as a vocalist, I'm having a problem. The "musicians" are innately used to jamming. As a "vocalist" (read as, car&shower singer), I'm finding it pretty hard to work outside of a structured box. By this, I mean for instance hearing your albums hundreds of times, and knowing every uttered syllable and inflection by heart. Improvising is not coming easy. I'm a writer, and coming up with lyrics or finding an appropriate lyric/melody pairing is feeling downright impossible such as when we are working on original pieces. Any suggestions for trying to work through this? How do you or DID you overcome this sort of thing?John Wesley responded on 03/17/2015
