Mothers Fathers Sisters Brothers is a collaborative project created by Oakland based musician, Benji Marx.
The music of Mothers Fathers Sisters Brothers focuses on the cycles of gain and loss, happiness and sadness that flow through our lives. The songs were written after the loss of a relationship and a reevaluation of what it means to lead a fulfilling life. I realized that we all have a circle of responsibility and we choose how far we want to extend it. How far can we push this boundary? Can we include each other? This project is a totem to remind me and hopefully others of the circles we draw, and to maintain the mindset that we are all mothers, fathers, sisters and brothers.
"Favorite Food was written with the taste of a lover still in my mouth, her smell still in my nostrils, and a lingering question of where she had gone." - Benji Marx
