The second offering of music from the songwriting team of Mark Lopez and Dave Schweizer bring a new focus of style. Their first CD was a broad palette of song genres to test the waters of their newfound collaboration. Somewhere Elsewhere progresses to find a stronger identity of sound and arrangement that is fresh and yet familiar. This collection of songs addresses the trials of everyday existence. Along the way you'll meet characters that view life from many different perspectives. Hope, despair, faith, gratitude, fear, and determination-they're all here and there's surely a song or two that the listener will take away with them. That's when they'll know that they have crossed over uncertain waters to a better place via Maple Bridge.
