ConJen makes music that your girlfriend will enjoy (and that you will appreciate nonetheless).

Biography

ConJen is escorting rock music into the new millennium with simple, smart and sharp pop tunes executed by an unpretentious three piece outfit with serious jazz, r&b and country chops.

Alternating unpredictably between deadly sincerity and uncommon wit and sarcasm, ConJen shares melodic and dramatic dna with Joe Jackson, Steely Dan, Wilco, Randy Newman and Cheap Trick.

Songwriter and guitarist Mark Concerto has performed for and on television (WeTV "When I Was a Girl", Oxygen "Pink Palace", Comedy Central's "Premium Blend") and film ("Slow Jam King"). Keyboardist Fat Tony and drummer A-Roque hold sway with hip hop collective Alter Egos and various jazz outfits around NYC.

Understated almost to a fault, ConJen is a rare breed of melodic aptitude, lyrical know-how and restrained musicianship. But don't let the 'thinking man's band' label mislead you. ConJen puts on a compelling, caring show with lots of big ideas and small moments for both the lover and the hater in you.

Lyrics

disagree

Written By: convertible jennifers

i disagree
but she don't notice
tried to concede
reveal my motives
i held the door
but now it won't close

i disagree
but she don't listen
tried to concede
abort this mission
i had the floor
but now i can't go

i can't believe she's four years older
she don't recall a thing i told her
i saw the sketches she was keeping
i told the truth but she was sleeping

she disagrees
with reservation
she doesn't grasp
the implications
she had the door
but now it won't close

she disagrees
with reservation
she doesn't want
no explanation
she had the door
but now it won't close

i can't believe she's four years older
she don't recall a thing i told her
i saw the sketches she was keeping
i told the truth but she was sleeping
i told the truth but she was sleeping

new year's eve

Written By: convertible jennifers

i'm wearing black on new year's eve
cause that's the night you're gonna leave
you've gone to fall in love again
with your familiar little friend

genevieve

Written By: convertible jennifers

genevieve, in case you're wondering
what the hell went wrong with me
it was when you mentioned Trenton
we were lost in Tennessee

wrapped you arm around your seatbelt
threw your legs across my knees
shook your head when we hit 90
are we still in Tennessee?

but genevieve we've almost made it
you're not looking too elated
the ocean is only a state and a half away

genevieve we can live together
you won't miss the Jersey weather
nor the snow on the sand on the holidays

draw a line across the dashboard
wipe that milkshake off your knee
you don't have to stay forever
you don't have to stay for me

so leave the windows and leave the keys in
Jesus moved here for a reason
don't tell the neighbors he was only passing through

genevieve this was your idea
the neighbors seemed so thrilled to meet you
til they saw your pointy little shoes
