about

Simone Page Jones and Miles O’Neil are dear friends and have been for quite some time. In the summer months of last year they found themselves on many an afternoon drinking gin and singing lonesome duets in the backyard. As the months got colder they left the backyard and began recording the songs in Miles’ spare room studio.

They eventually put a rough mix of the album into the hands of Darren Hanlon when he took a loan of Miles’ wonky old piano. Hanlon liked the songs so much he took them to Portland, Oregon to be mixed by renowned engineer Adam Selzer (She and Him, M. Ward, Jolie Holland) at the famed Type Foundry Studios. As well as that, Darren Hanlon recruited a handful of talented Portland musicians to play on the record.

The result is a work of quiet brilliance. Eleven songs of sparse acoustic duets subtly augmented by an old piano, pedal steel and the plunk of a banjo. Set in the folk/country tradition and maintaining at their core an Australian feel both in the lyrics and laconic style, the songs are straight from the heart and tell tales of the things that were, the things that weren’t and everything in between.
