Be it through music, poetry, prose, or visual arts, Jaye Bartell’s work revels in the space between moments of certainty, highlighting and often exulting the insistent impermanence of human experience. To witness Bartell live is to confront this in full. 

It is fitting then, that Bartell’s latest release is a series of 8 covers, each of which at one point appeared as part of his arresting live performance, folded seamlessly into the ethos and energy of Bartell’s own compositions.

“These are eight songs that I love and have performed at some point over the years, with the glaring omission of Cat Power, whose beloved Covers Record remains a significant inspiration and example to my music in general, and especially to the way I approach other writers' material. The songs were recorded over a few days at Drop of Sun Studios, in Asheville, NC, and we did the best with what we had, which was love for these songs and the help of a few friends.”
 

Bartell's stoic, often haunting delivery retains an acute vulnerability, disarming audiences of the compulsive search for meaning just long enough to actually encounter it.

8 Covers pulls from the varied catalogs of Carly Simon to Broadcast to Jean Ritchie, each track filtered through his distinct point of view, resulting in yet another breathtaking exultation from Jaye Bartell.
