Thoughtful and memorable, in music too


When Steve McKenzie and Laura Malasig paired up in San Francisco, their love of music inspired them to create thoughtful, memorable and entertaining melodies that reflected on their life experiences. Their meaningful and insightful lyrics offer meditative and contemplative songs that enable listeners to journey through their own personal life experiences via Common Union 59’s music!


By combining overtones of country rhythms that uniquely flow in harmony with contemporary pop, and psychedelic notes, the duo are able to add definition to the emotional lyrics that depict their journey through the many phases of life.

Malasig (vocal, piano and glockenspiel) and McKenzie (vocal, guitar and banjo) created exceptional Folk-Americana music to charm, delight and amuse music aficionados! You simply can’t help but to be drawn into their melodies – with ease of listening and absorbing their lyrics, while in meditative contemplation; you may find yourself entranced, relaxed and appeased with their music!

Common Union 59 – which also includes Kevin Hayes on drums and percussion – has produced an eruption of heartfelt love songs, experiences of various human conditions and emotions laced with hopes of happiness and realizations of dreams coming true. Inspired by their own lives, their songs permit listeners to relate to the lyrics, while focusing on appreciation and gratitude for life’s miracles and joys.
