Pania - Auckland Street Choir (a song by Mark Laurent) Some of you know I've been involved with Auckland Street Choir for a few years. We had our 6th birthday party the other night (though I've only been part of things about half that long) and we were jamming on whatever anyone wanted to sing. Someone asked for my song Pania, and Sandra Eriksen videoed it. It's an honour for me that these guys choose to sing this song - one that several members particularly relate to. They bring added wairua to it. http://www.marklaurent.co.nz

My Friends Are Dying - Mark Laurent. In 1986 I did an album called Kindness In A Strong City. I was "on a mission from God". :-) Sometimes you don't know when you hit your peak until long after you've passed it. After 35 years this is still the album that has the longest tail - the one people talk & write to me about all the time, and I'm really grateful that they do. Technically it wasn't my best album, but it mattered. A lot of my friends from the 90s onwards won't have even heard the songs off Kindness, as, being very Jesus-centric, they're not the usual fair for pubs or folk clubs. I was around & close to a lot of young people who got too deeply into drugs in the early 70s - I wrote this for them, and a few get mentioned in the lyrics. The title, My Friends Are Dying, comes from a Ray Comfort book of the same name. http://www.marklaurent.co.nz

Take Me To Your Leader - Mark Laurent. Before I started performing & songwriting in the 'mainstream' from the early 1990s, I'd already had a decade where nearly all the songs I played & wrote were as part of the Jesus movement - I was a kind of evangelist with a guitar, traveling around the country, mostly singing in churches & 'outreach' events, trying to use the music to share my faith. Of course I still do a bit of this, & my core beliefs haven't changed, but doors open & close over time. Take Me To Your Leader is a track that appeared on my first album, which came out (on vinyl) in 1982. When we went in to book the studio (Mandrill) and told the guys we were wanting to record a 'gospel' album the first question was "How big is the choir?" I think they were a bit surprised when we turned up with guitars, amps and a drum kit worthy of John Bonham. :-) This was one of the two acoustic solo tracks I did on that set. I hadn't played this at all in decades but a few months ago I brought it out in a busking situation & it seemed to go well. http://www.marklaurent.co.nz
