Jess Nolan - Windowpanes (Single)
2nd single from Jess Nolan's forthcoming album '93 (out September 8).
From Jess: "Back in summer of 2021, I picked up an old beater guitar that had been collecting dust on my wall. I’ve been a piano player my whole life but something about strumming in open tuning helped me tap into a childlike state to channel “Windowpanes”. It came through after a heated phone call with a friend about a political topic that we vehemently disagreed on. Talking to them felt like hitting a brick wall. This song is meant to be a meditation for finding common ground. It’s become a white flag for the difficult conversations we find ourselves in with people close to us. Empathy can be a window to understanding. To record it, I brought in my dear friends, Katie Pruitt & Kyshona, and we stood around one mic to sing the chorus - a call for unity in the face of so much divisiveness."
