8 CoversJaye Bartell
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.
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.
