Teddy Thompson slates duets disc
Wednesday, January 13, 2016
– Teddy Thompson and singer Kelly Jones will release a harmony duet collaboration, "Little Windows," on Cooking Vinyl April 1.
The pair first sang together on a George Jones track at Los Angeles' Club Largo in 2011. They soon embarked on a bi-coastal musical relationship (she in Los Angeles, he in New York) writing the songs that would become "Little Windows" along with partner Bill DeMain. Inspired by the Everly Brothers, Buddy Holly and Sam Cooke, the disc contains 10 songs.
They have shared the lyric video for "I Thought That We Said Goodbye," the first single.
The album was recorded live to a 16 track tape machine by producer Mike Viola (Ryan Adams, Jenny Lewis) with a band featuring Pete Thomas(drums), Davey Farragher (bass), Steve Elliot (guitar), Daniel Clarke (keys) andTeddy Thompson (guitar). Linda Thompson, Teddy's mother, is the executive producer.
Thompson's last solo album, "Bella," was released in 2011; while he produced and sang on 2014's acclaimed "Thompson Family Album" that featured his now-divorced parents Richard and Linda Thompson among other family members.
Jones' debut album "SheBANG," was released in 2008 with a follow-up, "Alta Loma," out in 2013.

Editorial: Walking the talk
When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Carlile goes from excellent to memorable musical event
The last time Brandi Carlile came through town, she was promoting 2018's "By the Way, I Forgive You," which would deservedly go on to win the 2019 Grammy Award for Best Americana Album.
