Jillette Johnson - All I Ever See In You Is Me
- CD - £ 10.99
Release Date 1st September 2017.
The sophomore album by American singer-songwriter and musician Jillette Johnson, that rare artist who needs little sonic accompaniment to make and indelible impart.
Produced by Dave Cobb (the Grammy Award-winner known for his work with Jason Isbell and Sturgill Simpson), ‘All I Ever See in You is Me’ offers up sparsely orchestrated songs centering on her spirited piano work and ever-changing vocal texture, an instrument that’s irresistibly powerful whether she’s belting out a refrain or whispering a hushed melody. Like on the most timeless song writers, Johnson finds infinite depth within that simplicity.
Recorded at RCA Studio A - the historic Nashville space where Dolly Parton laid down “Jolene” and “I Will Always Love You” in the same three-hour span - ‘All I Ever See in You is Me’ bears an unhurried pace and warm intimacy that echoes the purposeful looseness of its production. Drifting between hazy romanticism and resolute self-awareness, Johnson examines heartbreak and resilience with a willful and magnetic vulnerability.
