A new collaboration from Pieta Brown and JT Bates (Bonny Light Horseman, Big Red Machine, Taylor Swift) is out now on Righteous Babe! After leaving the road suddenly last year due to an unexpected shoulder complication that prevented Brown from touring for a while, Bates reached out and offered a much welcomed distraction in the form of new song collaborations while healing up at home.
“Making these pieces with JT was another musical and production experiment that I learned so much from,” stated Brown. “I’m still mesmerized by how these songs I had already written with my guitar could morph so fluidly into these other sonic realms. It was fun to play the Casio, and to really explore how to sing these songs without my guitar. As a singer I love experimenting with phrasing - the subtlest shifts can make such a difference. One slur and breath and suddenly it all works. JT and I have an on-going musical chemistry that I’m not sure either of us really understands, but is what allows for our spontaneous remote collaborations to happen, without ever feeling distant.”
