about

This is a collection of cover songs that I've recorded over the years of two of my all time favorite musicians' material. Kristin Hersh & Tanya Donelly and their respective bands (Throwing Muses and Belly) have been a huge part of my life since my formative years. Their music makes for a huge part of what would be the soundtrack of my life. To this day they haven't lost their touch. Allegorical lyrics and jagged chord structuring are commonplace in their striking songs. It's really always been about the sensory aspect for me as their music paints vivid, surreal imagery that with repeated listens become less surreal.These recordings are meant as tribute and I will not profit from these gifted artists' material in any way.

Thank you, Kristin and Tanya for blessing the world with your work.
You ladies are rare breed and you have been a big part of my life and a constant reminder of what got me excited about music in the first place.

Much love,
Jon
