It's here! Ella Brown, a folk-inspired song of love, loss, and learning (with two b-sides!)
We're really happy to announce that our studio-recorded single, Ella Brown, is now available to download!
Ella Brown is an original song, written by Ruth and arranged, played and sung by both of us. It is about love, loss, and learning from both those things. It's played on the violin, the ukulele and the melodica, and there are lots of vocal harmonies! It was recorded and produced by Andy Bowes at Catalyst Studios, St. Helens, and will also appear on our forthcoming EP, Amateur Astronomy, out this summer.
On the b-side we have two tracks! Both were recorded by a talented student friend of ours, Kerry Foster, at St. Helens College. Reynardine is a classic folk song (which we play on the mandolin and accordion) about a trickster brigand (who may or may not also be a fox) and Molly, or Jennie's Baubie, is a jig, played on the violin and melodica, which most of you will recognise.
The single, with its a-side and b-sides, is totally free to download, though if you wish and are able, you can pay more to help support us in making future recordings.
You can download from mossandjones.bandcamp.com.
The cover art for the single was drawn by another talented friend of ours, an artist called Michelle Quinn.
We hope you enjoy the music and would love to hear from you about what you think!
