Besides their ever-growing workload a project close to their hearts which in 2003 was a new venture of producing videos. They had produced a number of promo pop videos for the girl band L13 which they formed and managed. Take a look at this track entitled ‘Ain’t about you’ co written with Natasha McIntosh, Stephen’s eldest daughter who was also a member of the girl group L13. However unfortunately due to the fact that some of the girls emigrated from the U.K the girls dis-banded.
In 2018 Steve McIntosh started work with co-members Joe Francis & Heather Hayward on a new album for their own band The Cool-Notes for future release. In 2014 Joe Charles retired from the music business.
M&C have created their own extensive music library which is an on going venture that Steve McIntosh is still to this day enjoying, writing and producing for an ever increasing and demanding market. Please feel free to take a tour around the site your interest is always welcome.
