Retro-modern Rock with Catchy Hooks
Jon Mullane is an artist who pumps up an audience with driving rock tunes that make you want to move

His new album Shift – due to be released in Canada and internationally in February 2010 – contains the

melodic twists of Duran Duran and the in-your-face production of The Bodyrockers.” The song, along with
