Now the Rest of the story:
“There are two kinds of music – the blues and Zip A Dee Doo Dah. That’s what Townes Van Zandt said. But there is a third kind, which finds the best parts of both of those kinds of music and turns it into something seamlessly American and wonderful. That third kind is Jeni & Billy music.”
That’s the assessment of Grammy-nominated songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist Dillon O’Brian, who co-produced “Picnic in the Sky,” the new album from Jeni & Billy — the first the singer-songwriter duo has recorded with a full band.
And what a band! A crack team of LA-based musicians who are accustomed to working on major label projects for acts such as Jakob Dylan, Sheryl Crow, John Doe, and Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros came together in the Coldwater Canyon studio of Grammy-winning producer Dave Way to create The Big Picnic Band.
The resulting sound deepens and illuminates, but does not overwhelm, the deft songwriting and tight harmonies that have become Jeni & Billy’s signature among fans.
“Jeni & Billy are the sweetest, most down to earth, good people – making music just like that,” says four time Grammy-winning co-producer Dave Way.
