TUNE JEANES - Simple Jayne
Russ found a song called ('warm august wind') he liked the title of and clicked on the link to the artist and found himself captivated by the multi-talented Catherine Hershey, and was struck by a voice he realised he had envisioned singing his song, Simple Jayne. Having painstakingly created a backing track and guide vocals. Russ approached the singer. Thankfully Catherine agreed to take a listen and the next thing Russ knew, Catherine had sent a DIY recording and immediately Russ knew magic had been created. When other commitments permitted, Catherine turned her attention to the second track on the EP, Barley, Hops & Yeast, adding harmonising vocals to her interpretation which created a poignant sense of yearning within the track, while Russ worked on Simple Jayne.
Catherine’s vocal recording inadvertently captured the sound of a Parisian birdsong through her apartment window. Russ was so captivated by the blackbird immortalised on Catherine’s recording that he added more morning birdsong.
This heady dose of nature remains to this day and can be enjoyed on the finished recording! The first track was born
