about

Finding inspiration in a thematic concept from their friend, John Hanley, the Huseman brothers picked up their guitars and pens in 2011 to begin the four-year journey of writing and producing Good News. The album is the first to feature Brandt and Matt singing all the vocals and playing most of the instruments (along with a helping hand from former Splitsville member, Paul Krysiak, on several tracks). It delivers everything you would want and expect from a Huseman Brothers' collaboration -- irresistible pop hooks, inventive arrangements, clever lyrics, and soaring vocals. Looking for some good news to brighten your day? It's waiting for you, right here, with Good News by The Stereo Twins.

Track Name: J2J
Went down to the river
Oh to wash my sins away
But I heard the calling
And I couldn't stay
Now I've been wanderin'
All across this land
From the banks of the Jordan
To Jerusalem

My eyes are open
And what do I see
Such pain and suffering
In Galilee
I'll spread my message
I’ll share my dream
From the mountains to the city
Come and join the Nazarene

My feet are blistered
My clothes are torn
I've walked for miles
To get myself born
Yeah I've been wanderin'
All across this land
From the banks of the Jordan
To Jerusalem
Track Name: All That I Know
Suffer for your sins
it’s all that you know
Fear the mighty hand
it’s all that you know
Lest it curse the earth
it’s all that you know
Famine in the land
it’s all that you know

Serve a jealous god
it’s all that you know
Burn the golden calf
it’s all that you know
Poverty and shame
it’s all that you know
Sorrow to the grave
it’s all that you know

Thou shall love
always with thy heart and soul it’s
all that I know
Not in tongue but in deed and of the truth it’s
all that I know
many first will be last and last be first it’s
all that I know
… and all things are possible it’s
all that I know
Track Name: Stars Shine
Do you understand when I say to you that everything on earth is for all of us?
Not a few…
And when you see the world as a gift of love
Then everything you own is on loan, so you must let it go

Some say the stars shine for all of us
It’s not that so unbelievable

Do you think it’s wrong?
Cuz I know it’s not
It just seems that way cuz it’s dangerous…
So you’ve heard
Have you heard some say the stars shine for all of us?
It’s not that so unbelievable
Yeah, I say the stars shine for all of us
It’s not that so unbelievable

Now forget your pride
Or forget there’s suffering
And challenge all that you know
Embrace your life
You’re part of everything
Forever and ever

Some say the stars shine for all of us
It’s not that so unbelievable
Yeah I say the stars shine for all of us
Isn’t that so very beautiful
I say the stars shine for all of us
Isn’t that now up to you?
Track Name: Mariamne
Oh Mariamne
You look so lovely
I got this feeling
Come on let's talk about it

I'm just a man made
Of flesh and bone and
I feel ecstatic
Why can’t we talk about it?

Cuz I can think of
Seven reasons
That you’ll forgive me
If you would just forgive yourself

And when you're near me
My heart is bursting
And when you're far I feel like I'm sinking like a stone
Like a stone

I've spent my whole life looking for answers
So many questions and so much controversy
What are we doing?
Where are we going?
Is there a reason?
Will we ever really know?

But Mariamne, it doesn't matter without compassion
If we can’t look beyond ourselves…

I almost missed it.
Oh Mariamne…
But when it struck
It left me feeling like I'm stoned
Like I'm stoned
Track Name: M Coda
Oh Mariame
To me they look so lonely
Like their one and only had been taken from their hands

Oh Mariamne
To me you look so lovely
I know you’ll save me from the world upon my back
Track Name: Signs & Wonders
Devotion isn’t what I desire
You can say I’m a liar
But you’d be wrong
You think you need a miracle weaver
I’m a magic believer
In earthly tones
And I may be a “nobody”
But I’m everyone who knows
That every day we witness
Signs and wonders

For you I’ll offer this invitation to be staggered by nature and crushed by love
And you determine if you’ll accept it
But if you must reject it then let me know
Well… what would happen if you could relax and let it flow?
Then every day you’d witness
Signs and wonders

When you think about it don’t be too concerned
Try not to laugh aloud but you could even witness what you’ve learned
Everywhere…
Signs and wonders
Track Name: Parable
Once there was a mighty king who ventured all his faith
On money, land, and shiny things but not his people's fate
Everything seemed, everything seemed like a dream
A brilliant crown of gold that glimmered in the sun
But no one cared as he grew old despite all he had won
Everything seemed, everything seemed like a dream

He should have left it but he couldn't let go....

The more he gained the more he lost
And so to his great shame
He carried on despite the cost and sullied his good name
But everything seemed like a bad dream
On the day that he was turned upon by those who were cast down
And soon uneasy hung the head that bore his golden crown
Everything seemed, everything seems like a dream

He shoulda left it but he couldn't let go....
Track Name: Hymn
Oh, Father, don't you know that I would love to kiss her mouth
And settle in a quiet place where I would build our house
Then she would mend the garden while I tended to the sheep
We'd glory in each other’s love and pray our souls to keep

I dream at night of building her a glorious marriage bed
Within in a tree where we could see the stars above our heads
The roots that fuse our love would grow so deep into the earth
That every morning would seem like a moment of rebirth

Oh, Father, don't you know I think my time is running out
And would it be so wrong for me to kiss her on the mouth
And grow a seed inside her in our own immaculate way
In honor of the simple things let's bow our heads and pray

Hallelujah!
Track Name: Phony
What makes you think…?
How can you…?
Oh… forget about all that you want
Cuz all that you need
Is more than you know
And as for now
All you’ve shown me is you’re nothing but a phony
Happy to make believe that you’ve put your faith in something
So deceitful
How can I make you see that
When you say that you know me
You’re just another phony

You criticize, censure, and preach
And seem so proud
Maybe in time
You’ll be ashamed of your conceit
But as for now…
You're a phony
You're nothing but a phony
Happy to make believe that
You’ve put your faith in something
So deceitful
How can I make you see that
When you say that you know me
You're just another phony
Track Name: How Long?
Love, I gave it my best
I never guessed
You would pay me back in kind
Now, I'm tattered and torn
Threatened and thorned
And I'm running out of time

This Is over and done
We are still one
And I know you're always there
Still, I'm down on my knees
Split into threes
I guess that's my cross to bear

How long?
How long?
How long will we carry on?

Now, they understand
That I'm just a man
Oh, and I can come to harm
Yet, I still believe
I'll be received
In your ever-lasting arms

How long?
How long?
How long will we carry on?

How long? etc.
How long will this carry on?
How long will we carry on?
Track Name: Elijah
Songs of love and devotion
Spring forth from my heart
For the kingdom of heaven
Is right where you are
As you love your new baby…
Or the neighbor who’s driving you crazy…
Or a stranger who needs you
Give your love and you make me complete
If you go astray
I’ll be the way and the light
Guiding you back to your own place and time
Can you find peace of mind
Knowing wherever you are
Triangulates from my heart to the great forever?

What a wonderful notion
This infinite love
How can something so sacred be so terrible?
It’s a gift that connects us
To remind us that life is so precious
So I hope you remember
I am here for you
Always
And please…
If you go astray
I’ll be the way and the light
Guiding you back to your own place and time
Can you find peace of mind
Knowing wherever you are
Triangulates from my heart
To the eyes above?
Track Name: Good News
Empires and emperors
These things can be replaced
I’ll tell you now the story of
Someone so full of grace
Everything seemed…
Everything seemed like a dream or distant memory
Remember when he came?
Not bathed in light but simply put
Was cleansed of our disgrace
Everything seemed
Everything seemed like a dream
