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.

In that span, Thompson coaxed his folk legend mother, Linda Thompson, into the studio after a 17-year hiatus and co-wrote and co-produced the brilliant "Fashionably Late," toured with his iconic folk father Richard Thompson and Roseanne Cash, and recorded not only his sophomore album but a »»»
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: Despite small crowd, Hood accomplishes mission
It would have been quite easy to think that Adam Hood would have mailed in this gig. It could not have been easy to make your debut in the Boston area after putting out seven albums, not to mention having songs picked by A list artists, and having maybe 25 people show up.
If the Alabama native was dissuaded by the small crowd, he did not show it.... »»»
