Johnny Marr - Mojo Magazine February 2013

Working with James Doviak, guitarist and keyboard player on what was going to be a second Healers album, the bones of The Messenger quickly took shape in Marr’s Manchester studio. He found singing songs that were unusually personal helped him develop a more characterful and expressive vocal style and took the starring role in his own production. “I quickly recognised the value of having my own spirit in this record,” he explains. “I carried this romantic notion of what I was dreaming about when I left school, the frame of mind I was in, and all the bands, the enviroment, all of those things. When the record was finished I thought I’d achieved those things.”
