Jess + Matt
Sydney’s mesmerising duo, Jess + Matt, (Jess Dunbar and Matt Price) will release their forthcoming album SONGS FROM THE VILLAGE on June 15, 2018 via Sony Music Entertainment Australia.
The record is an earnest collection of iconic songs that heralded the folk revolution, honouring celebrated artists such as Simon and Garfunkel, Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell and more, through captivating and delightful renditions.
As the album release approaches, Jess + Matt have given fans another taste of the upcoming record with stunning new track ‘The Sound of Silence’ which they recorded with Chris Isaak. Those who pre-order the album will receive ‘Sound Of Silence’ as well as another two instant great tracks: ‘The Times They Are A-Changin’ and ‘Both Sides Now’. SONGS FROM THE VILLAGE is available for pre-order NOW.
SONGS FROM THE VILLAGE treasures simplistic melodies and expressive storytelling, gorgeously propelled and angelically lifted by Jess + Matt’s warm tones and rich harmonies. The pair harness a rare musical ability to transcend time, resonating a nostalgic presence through song.
‘The Times They Are A-Changin’ is a stunning tribute to Bob Dylan’s 1964 anthem, with the stellar duo delicately honing the classic song with their trademark vocal harmonies. The pair continue to foster this trademark sound, with their warm and soulful rendition of Joni Mitchell’s ‘Both Sides Now’.
On the track ‘The Times They Are A-Changin’, Price comments: “It’s 50, almost 60 years later, and these songs are just as influential as ever, and a lot of the messages – in songs like ‘The Times They Are A Changin’ – calling for equality, in this modern world it feels more relevant than ever. It was interesting coming back to those songs and seeing how they stood the test of time, and that the messages have come back around”.
